Recently there’s been a bit of backlash against the rising tide of mobile recruiting. When hearing about mobile recruiting trends, some have argued the whole thing is a sham. They talk about how companies are simply profiting from the idea of mobile recruiting but recruiters aren’t. According to pundits and thought leaders, the numbers are promising, but they’re used to promote products that don’t need to exist in the marketplace. Companies and users will adapt to these mobile trends eventually, without the need for concerted efforts.

There’s really no other way to say it: if you’re not adapting to mobile, you’re falling behind. Phones and tablets are taking over, and if you’re still looking for candidates the old-fashioned way, candidates are going to gloss over your job ads or, even worse, never see them at all. With 72% of candidates looking at career sites on their phone, you’d think companies would wise up and deliver career sites that take advantage of smartphones. Nope. Only 18% of recruiting leaders say their companies have optimized their job ads for mobile, and with every passing year, the heinousness of this crime intensifies.

Not everyone knows what it means to really recruit through mobile, either. In fact, there seems to be a lot of confusion about what mobile recruiting really is; some think it’s interchangeable with social media recruiting (it’s not, though the two are complementary in many ways). Others think it’s not worth pursuing at all, and that candidates who want jobs will find their way to you if they’re really interested.
