Recruitment industry has come a long way from being a paper-pencil test taking staffing agency to having a more automated recruitment process. It is no longer recruiter-driven. Technology has played a huge role in bringing this change. Today organizations are facing fierce competition to be the most sought-after employer brand for qualified talent. To stand out and attract the best, recruiters will have to go a step beyond. An effective hiring experience backed by presence at places and platforms where candidates are seeking jobs is crucial in hiring the best talent. A recent global survey reveals that 74% % of active job seekers have viewed career opportunities on their mobile; 72% have visited a company career site and 45% have applied to a job on their cell phones. Clearly, using mobile phones for hiring could add an edge to the recruitment process.
To address this, People Matters and Pearson TalentLens organized a webinar on 15th November, 2016 which was presented by Shashir Shetty, National Sales Head, Pearson TalentLens India.
