Presented by: Joe Essenfeld, CEO, JIBE
The extreme shift in job seeker behavior from searching for jobs via local ads and online postings to targeting specific company opportunities via career sites has increased the need for employers to invest in mobile-enabled career sites. Functions like job search, the application process, and progress tracking are all desirable for candidates on mobile devices by potential candidates. Restricting candidates’ ability to search and apply for jobs to non-mobile devices isn’t just a barrier but can actually turn candidates off to the organization. Transitioning to an mSite or creating an app isn’t the answer. Candidate experience, attraction to the career site and the overall ease of application all need to be considered. In this session, USAA will explain how they approached the need for recruiting to go mobile. They will share the internal hurdles they encountered, how they combined their ATS system for maximum efficiency, and share the results of their endeavor and how it changed their recruiting success.
