Per monster.com… As more consumers set aside laptops in favor of smartphones, iPads and other tablet computers, job seekers expect to be engaged with videos, job notifications and quick follow-up. Many experts say that recruiters must learn to adapt their recruitment strategy to these platforms.
Today’s mobile job seekers have different expectations and look for:
- Instant updates about new jobs via their mobile devices
- Immediate feedback to their job application
- Recruiting videos to watch on their mobile devices
- Engaging, interactive content from employers
Recent Facebook data for here in the Philippines shows that as much as 90% of job applicants will apply via mobile for the same job they would pass up if looking at the post via a laptop or desktop.
And according to CareerBuilder’s 2013 Candidate Behavior Study, 65 percent of workers who search for jobs via mobile devices will leave a website if it isn’t mobile-friendly, and – possibly worse – 40 percent walk away with a more negative opinion of the company.
You have to think Mobile first if you want to attract 18-24 year old Filipinos for jobs in the BPO Industry.
