As recruiting becomes a more well respected and integral part of the corporate structure, new technology is emerging to help source and hire talent in a variety of industries. Far from replacing recruitment jobs, these technical solutions are freeing up HR professionals to focus on tasks that can’t be done by computers, including interviewing and candidate research.
The vast majority of Internet activity these days happens on mobile devices, primarily smartphones. While retail and commerce has embraced this reality, taking advantage of easy to use tools if they can’t build their own, recruiting has resisted this change and is suffering as a result. Businesses that don’t have a mobile first approach to job recruiting are missing out on top talent every day.
