12 September / October 2014 Elearning! Mobile Recruiting Lags in the Corporate World Given the proliferation of mobile devices, mobile job searching is growing rapidly. According to comScore, 9.3 million workers searched for jobs via their mobile devices in March 2013, up from 2.3 million in March 2012. This is exciting news for talent acquisition departments looking to extend their employment brand through additional chan- nels. For example, according to a recent study by Aberdeen Group, 70 percent of respondents said they have used their mobile devices to search for jobs, and 51 percent are already applying for jobs on mobile. According to an e-book titled "Top Talent Is Mobile…Are You?," many organizations still do not have any mobile-compatible career portals or job listings. This may be a signifcant deterrent for mobile job seekers to apply to these organizations at all. —Full e-book: www.icims.com Trendlines I.T.
