The mobile recruiting revolution is currently one of the most discussed recruitment methods of 2014. There has been a shift in the usage of mobile devices and this has created a mass audience of potential job-seekers to address. It provides new ways to get in touch with potential candidates and increases access to those qualified for vacancies.
There are new ways being constantly developed to reach out to the mobile user, with the hope of increased engagement and further visibility.
The main benefits for consumers to use mobile devices is the convenience, accessibility, privacy and freedom. This would include searching and applying for jobs, receiving job alerts and the ability to track application status. The majority of career sites are now optimised for mobile compatibility, including our IMSworldwide company website.
As web traffic migrates to smartphones and tablets, forward thinking businesses are beginning to integrate both mobile sites and apps. Although mobile recruitment has only recently emerged, it ispromising to be the most important trend since social networking.

In comparison to last year, 2014 has shown an increase in mobile visitors and a decrease in desktop users in the region of 8%.
