Millennials… Glued to their phones, posting everything to social media and spending more time on the internet than their preceding generations. Yes, these are quasi-negative stereotypes, but that doesn’t mean you should engage them any less than other workforce generations; nor are they the only generation to use their mobile device frequently. Use this stereotype to your advantage in recruiting.
Some companies use interviews as an opportunity to reach out to candidates, others use surveys during the recruiting process. Other organizations, take candidate engagement to a whole new level. They use the impact emerging technology on workers’ tendencies toward mobile engagement and reach out to them via text messaging.
