Developing Your Mobile Strategy 1 Analyze site traffic Do your research up front. Be sure to solicit help from your web team to find out how much of your career site traffic comes from mobile devices. 2 Avoid “pinch & pop” If users have to zoom in and out to view what is on your career site, they are not likely to stick around or apply. 3 Look at the competition’s mobile activity Evaluate whether your top competitors are using mobile recruiting solutions. If you’re falling behind the competition, this argument may help when pitching mobile to management.

Tips to Implement Your Mobile Strategy 1 Make it quick One-click job apply is a good way to give users on-the-go a smooth, pain-free experience. Be sure that candidates can easily upload resumes to apply to your job listings. 2 Keep it short Most candidates are using mobile devices during commutes or lunch breaks. It’s important to condense your job descriptions and employer brand messaging to minimal text that is easy to digest on mobile. 3 Optimize all videos and pictures Limit media to download quickly on a mobile device. Avoid Flash, because this format won’t work on iOS devices (iPhones, iPads, iPod Touches).
