The Smart Phone Explosion is Driving Mobile Talent Part 1 of 2

Posted by Ed Newman:

A few weeks ago I wrote about how email has become a key driver of mobile recruiting. I was essentially making an educated guess that a big percentage of email is being read on mobile devices, largely because of the way I read email.  Even before I switched from a Blackberry to…

The Likeability of Your Recruiters Is About Much More Than Just Being Polite

Posted by Kris Dunn:

You’ve got recruiters.  They recruit for you.  If you’re in a competitive space, the candidates who interact with your recruiters consider the jobs they offer as commodities.

Why High Tech Companies are Behind in Mobile Recruiting!

A few months back we published the Corporate Mobile Readiness Report, an assessment of the Fortune 500′s presence on the mobile web. We evaluated the companies on six criteria ranging from native apps, to mobile optimization of the corporate site, the career site, as well as the continuity between them.  It was not surprising to find out that most companies are not ready.  Less than 30% have mobile corporate websites, and only 13% have a…

They’ve been in the depths of hell, and your company’s not hell – it’s just El Paso in the summer.

Over the last six months as I have fully immersed myself into the world of mobile recruiting one of the first things I learned about was the difference between an mSite and a native app. I have found that there is a lot of confusion out there on this subject as well as some strong opinions, so I thought it would be worthy of a discussion.
