Workers Use Mobile Devices to Search for Jobs

On the Hunt  68% of job seekers are using their mobile device to search for jobs once a week or more, and 30% do so more than once a day.

Hey, Corporate America, we're going to let you in on a not-so-well-kept secret. We know you're hard-pressed to hire IT workers and other professionals these days. But do you realize that the vast majority of these talented folks are using mobile devices to search your job postings and review your Website? Apparently, many employers don't know that because a recent survey from Glassdoor reveals that a significant number of position candidates find it difficult to navigate companies' career information on mobile devices. Not only that, but findings demonstrate that a notable percentage of these job seekers are likely to move on to other potential employers if they conclude that position postings and other related career content aren't designed for the mobile job search experience. The upshot: Many job candidates firmly believe that mobile is the permanent wave of the future, and they'll gravitate toward organizations that understand that and optimize their career information for mobile devices. An estimated 1,100 employees and job seekers took part in the research.
