Decision Toolbox Director of Technology Dominick Bernal weighs in on the future of mobile recruiting in a recent article on Recruiter.com.

Excerpt from the article:

Today’s Question: At Recruiter.com, we’re wondering what the future of mobile recruiting will look like. What do you think? What tips, tools, technologies, or tactics will dominate the mobile recruiting space in the coming years – and why?

Candidates Will Demand Simple Interfaces

Recruiters and developers should recognize that mobile is not an exotic animal to be chained, but a fact of everyday life. Many are overthinking mobile. Developers should simply put themselves in the shoes of users to optimize mobile platforms.

For example, while job seekers will run searches on mobile devices, when it comes time to submit a resume or fill out an application, many choose to use a laptop or desktop. Perhaps they prefer the full-size keyboard or the larger screen.

However, there are job seekers who don’t have regular access to a laptop or desktop or don’t have a resume. Developers should continue to work toward simple and easy interfaces, but also consider providing a way for a job seeker to express interest without first filling out the full application. A savvy recruiter could then engage the candidate in a timely manner and ask them to follow through on the resume/application piece.

Another way to make it easy for job seekers is to make it possible to apply using a social profile, particularly as we see more and more merging of social profiles. It’s fairly simple to incorporate a button for “Apply with LinkedIn,” for example.
