The Year of Mobile Recruiting: A Look Back at the Sendouts Blog in 2011

One of the biggest highlights at Sendouts for 2011 was the release of the revamped Sendouts mobile.  The mobile recruiting landscape had changed quite a bit from the initial launch of Sendouts mobile in 2004.  Advances in technology, not to mention the proliferation of touch-screen devices meant that it was definitely time to reinvent our mobile app.  Mobile will continue to be a big topicin the recruiting industry in 2012 as recruiters make their websites mobile accessible, connect with contacts via text messaging, and find innovative ways to use QR codes.

Here are a few more highlights of 2011:

→We had fun with Taylor, our summer intern, and learned what the job search looks like from a gen-y perspective.

→“The Economy” has been a big catch phrase the past few years, and 2011 was no different.  While job growth inched forward, the recruiting space still remained crowded as recruiters joined, or re-entered the market.  Staying competitive was key for TPRs.

→As a recruiting software, it’s sometimes hard to think of Sendouts as anything more that that screen that’s always open, or that little green dude on your desktop.  But we made a real impact last year.  By August of 2011, over 45,000 people had been placed in a job via Sendouts.  That’s enough people to fill Busch Stadium, and a lot of opportunities created.

→We hit a hot button with our post about the love/hate relationship between third party recruiters and their counterparts in HR.  “Recruiters vs. HR:  Breaking Down the Barriers” was tied for most commented-on post on the Sendouts blog this year.

→As for the other post tied for first in comments?  It was a look at Charlie Sheen as a disgruntled employee.

I loved that Charlie Sheen post.; )

Mobile Mobile Mobile it is all the rage. I do feel as this thought becomes more widely accepted and more and more are taking attempts to incorporate mobile recruiting as part of their overall strategy that we will finally see a break through in 2012. Now if my crystal ball could just give me an insight on exactly when/what that will be I would be able to write one hell of a post, but for now I anxiously await the advancements in this area.
