“Mobile devices are where talented people discover new opportunities,”

Mobile Recruiting Solution
SmartRecruiters released mobile recruiting today, and it is the market’s best solution to convert visitors into applicants on your own site. This cutting edge mobile recruiting solution consists of three parts: a mobile careers page, a mobile job ad, and a mobile friendly application process.
The unfortunate truth is that companies are ill prepared for increased candidate traffic on mobile devices. ERE reported 12% of Fortune 500 companies have a mobile-optimized career site and less than 5% are capable of accepting an application on a mobile device.
Below is the candidate experience flow: 1. Mobile Careers Site 2. Mobile Job Ad 3. Mobile Apply 4. Review Candidate Profile and Short Message to Hiring Manager 5. Confirmation and Congratulations.
“By helping companies engage mobile visitors interested in career opportunities, we connect talent on the go with businesses that care to deliver great experience to prospective employees,” said SmartRecruiters Product Manager Natalia Baryshnikova.
Mobile Careers Site
The new mobile careers site brings a cleaner, more modern design to the candidate experience. Potential candidates reach a branded page where all jobs titles and locations are easily legible. People can quickly scroll your list of openings, and/or search all open positions in the upper right hand corner.
Mobile Job Ad
Every job job posted through SmartRecruiters is optimized for a mobile device. Whether a candidate arrives from your career page, a job board, or social media, he or she receives an experience optimized for their device.
SmartRecruiters leverages LinkedIn and Facebook to provide a seamless application process. The candidate gathering their information is as simple as “Connect with Facebook” or “Connect with LinkedIn.”
Candidate Profile Review
By connecting to either of their social networks, the candidate’s location, email, work experience (title and company), and education will auto populate in their candidate profile. Now the candidate can review his or her profile and has the option to send a short message directly to the hiring manager.
“We are making the cover letter more social,” said SmartRecruiters CEO Jerome Ternynck. “Above all else, a cover letter should be brief and personalized. ”
Confirmation & Congratulations
At the completion of the mobile job application, the candidate is ensured that it worked. SmartRecruiters confirms that the business has received their application, offers a few words of encouragement, and prompts the candidate to share the word about SmartRecruiters if they think every job application should work like SmartRecruiters.
Voilà, the minutes of a mobile candidate experience. The reality is, top talent does not waste time. 37% (and rising) of all internet traffic is through a mobile device. Are you prepared to lose over a third of potential hires because you do not allow them to express interest in working for your company? I’m not, and you won’t be in business for long if you are.
