Mobile is taking over the world. By the end of 2015, there will be more than 2 billion smartphone and tablet users worldwide. For the first time ever, more users will be accessing the Internet wirelessly from their mobile devices than from their PCs. This will have dramatic repercussions for employers and recruiters.
Today, more than 70% of all passive and active candidates use their mobile devices as part of their job search. As mobile devices go mainstream, job seekers are expecting to have the same candidate experience from their smartphones as they do from their PCs. When their expectations aren’t met, candidates are likely to abandon the application process and reconsider their opinion of a potential employer.
