Why Mobile Recruitment is the Face of Hiring in the Future

Kelly Barcelos on June 3, 2016 in Recruitment Process

The bulk of business operations today is being handled on the web, and recruitment is no different. Many businesses use some sort of applicant tracking system (ATS) or software that automates the recruitment procedure.

Earlier, recruiters had to handle a range of tasks themselves, like posting ads on job boards, filtering resumes, screening candidates, sending out interview requests, etc. Today, all these tasks are managed by the company’s recruitment software, which saves managers and recruiters a wealth of time and effort.

Making the Most of Mobile Recruitment

With today’s need to stay connected, mobile apps are dominating the global business world. Recruitment is no exception, and mobile recruiting now makes the application procedure simpler and hassle-free for applicants.

Here’s how to make sure mobile recruitment works for you:

  • Give Yourself a Competitive Edge

    The key to be successful in today’s cutthroat business world is to change before you’re forced to. Aim to be a trendsetter, not a second-class follower. Be the first to adopt the newest tech trends, advancements, and best practices, so that you’re able to beat your competition and get the edge you need to be a leader.

    Before you implement a change, especially one that’s large-scale, give yourself time to consider whether you’re ready for that change. This obviously takes some thought, so make sure you have enough of a timeframe to plan out a strategy, then implement it, and still retain a competitive advantage.

  • Assess Its Feasibility

    Often, the corporation’s existing operations may be overlooked and their resources redirected to facilitate newer ones. So, it is critical to consider whether a new initiative will be feasible in terms of its impact on the company’s existing operations.

    For small or even a medium-sized business, there may be some tradeoff due to lack of resources. If capital is insufficient, existing operations might be affected to some extent. The company must decide how to minimize the negative impact and prioritize by assessing the value of a new venture against the benefit of existing operations.

    Once you’ve decided to go for a change, the next step is to bring in the shareholders, who will pay for launching the new initiative. This phase is crucial and one that many companies miss in their hurry to adopt the change.

  • Your Mobile Recruitment Strategy

    Instead of blindly jumping on the mobile recruitment bandwagon, just to stay competitive, take a minute to think whether this strategy is really for you. Consider the need and the value of developing a mobile recruitment strategy.

    Ask yourself if it’s really what your organization needs or if you’re doing perfectly fine through your existing operations. Looking at your current performance will help you strategize better. It will give you a clearer idea of what type of mobile recruitment strategy you should develop and how it should be implemented.

  • Is Mobile Recruitment for You?

    You can best answer this question by assessing the state of your existing recruitment setup. If you’re facing difficulty reaching out to job hunters or hiring suitable recruits, perhaps it’s time to up your recruitment game through social sharing, mobile-friendly tools and more.

    You’re clearly not reaching enough job hunters or, else, the application process is too complex or time-consuming and is thus putting off interested candidates.

  • Moving Past the Consideration Stage

    The consideration stage may seem endless and exhaustive, but the work you do in this phase lays down a strong foundation for the development of your overall strategy. It will give a solid base to implement a successful strategy, unhampered by any unexpected tradeoffs or delays.

Mobile recruitment is quickly gaining steam in various business circles. It’s all set to take the business world by storm.
