Have you done this yet?
The traditional way most job ads are posted and accessed is on a laptop or desktop computer.
Yet, just because it is the traditional way does not mean it is still the best way.
One thing you may want to do as you review and update your hiring process for the year is review and update your online application process. It’s a simple and cost-effective process that will benefit you in the long run. Sure, you may pay a premium up front, but what it will do for your business as a whole will far outweigh the initial up-front cost.
Specifically, you want to make sure you have optimized your application process for mobile. You’re most-likely reading this on your smart phone right now, so what are the odds someone is going to find your job posting on their mobile device? The odds are pretty high. Plus, you’ll eliminate any costs associated with posting your job on online job boards.
It is one thing to have your company website mobile friendly.
It is another thing to have your application process simple and speedy on mobile as well.
During a time like now, where it can be hard to get your job in front of top talent, you want to use every tool possible.
Developing a fast, efficient, minimal step process on mobile, can be a great way to capture a potentially great candidate.
Because of this convenience they will be more inclined to apply to your position versus a competitors as they stand in line at the store or during their lunch break.
