It has been estimated that by the conclusion of 2014 there will be more mobile devices than people on planet Earth and in 2015 more people will access the internet from mobile devices than desktops.
With this influx of mobile technology people are now completing desktop functions on their mobile devices instead. The increasing expansion of apps and mobile friendly websites has made internet materials much more easily accessible through mobile devices. Job searches through mobile devices have become increasingly popular when candidates are looking for employment opportunities.
It is crucial that staffing and recruiting firms develop mobile friendly recruitment and job application formats as candidates tend to gravitate more towards their mobile devices as opposed to their desktops. As trends begin to favor mobile devices over desktops, due to convenience and privacy reasons, it is vital that staffing and recruiting firms follow suit and change with the times.
