LinkedIn Further Mobilizes Candidates and Recruiters – Meet Mobile Work With Us and Recruiter Mobile
October 16, 2013
People are more mobile than ever before. Yet recruiters like you, and the recruiting process, are still chained to the desktop. That has made it painstakingly difficult for candidates to search for, discover and apply for jobs via mobile. It has also limited your productivity because you can’t interact with candidates and hiring managers while on the go.
About 33% of members visit LinkedIn from mobile. Plus, more than 30% of LinkedIn job views come from mobile and half of members who’ve applied via mobile for jobs posted on LinkedIn have never applied from their desktop. That’s why we’ve focused on making it easy for members to discover jobs on mobile via search and Sponsored Jobs in the feed and immediately apply simply using their profiles.
But we’re far from done, and recruiters like you are far from mobile. That’s why I’m excited to share that today at Talent Connect Las Vegas we unveiled two products that make it even easier for candidates to discover your jobs via mobile and increase your productivity while you’re away from your desk: Mobile Work With Us and Recruiter Mobile.
Mobile Work With Us
One of the best ways to reach passive candidates is Work With Us, which lets you showcase your job openings on your employees’ profiles. Since the most popular thing to do on LinkedIn is viewing member profiles and people love working with people they know, Work With Us is a powerful way to turn your employees into brand ambassadors.
Mobile Work With Us simply extends all that goodness to mobile. The ads will appear in a place that’s sure to drive lots of engagement – atop members’ profiles. Now whenever someone looks at the mobile profiles of your employees, they’ll see relevant jobs at your company, which makes it even easier for candidates to discover your jobs and helps extend the mobile footprint of your company’s talent brand. Here what Mobile Work With Us looks like:
Mobile Work With Us is available today and is free as part of LinkedIn Work With Us.
This new app puts the LinkedIn Recruiter features you love most in the palm of your hand. The end result: a more productive you and better interactions with both candidates and hiring managers. That’s because you can do everything from responding immediately to candidate InMails, to viewing all of our more than 238 million members’ full profiles, to getting hiring manager feedback on candidates – all while out and about. See for yourself:
Recruiter Mobile is free to existing LinkedIn Recruiter customers and is available today in the App Store for iPhone users. Not an iPhone user? You can also access it from your mobile device’s web browser at www.linkedIn.com/recruiter.
When it comes to mobile, we’ve got you covered – from candidates discovering jobs via Sponsored Jobs in the LinkedIn feed and Mobile Work With Us, to candidates applying for jobs posted on LinkedIn simply using their member profiles, to recruiters interacting with candidates and hiring managers while on the go using Recruiter Mobile. And best yet, we’re just getting started!
