Smarter companies get smarter candidates with the new, mobile-optimised Taleo career portal.
With more and more people now connecting online through smartphones, there is a genuine requirement for a professional, engaging and efficient mobile recruitment application solution. In today’s dynamic, fast moving, digital world, candidates should be able to easily apply for jobs on a mobile phone.
A third of applications are lost
Candidates are using their mobile devices more than ever today. According to our recently completed research, conducted over a 6 month period and totalling nearly 12,000 candidate applications, more than 20% of all internet access to the career portal comes from mobile devices. Sadly, the average drop-off rate for this type of applicant is very high, averaging around 30%. This means one in three candidates decides not to complete a job application due to the inconvenient process and poor user experience on mobile device.
Mobile friendly solution for Taleo
The powerful Taleo ATS (Applicant Tracking System) tool does offer online application, but unfortunately no mobile solution was available. Our challenge was to create a seamless, user-friendly way for potential hires to apply online using handheld devices like smartphones or tablets.
We have evaluated the pros and cons of a mobile app versus a mobile version of the website, and quickly determined a mobile site was the right solution. It reduces the maintenance and revisions needed as mobile devices and operating systems change so rapidly, and ensures the user experience is good, regardless of the type of device they use.
PERFORM JOB SEARCHES
The career portal accessed via the mobile device browser will be optimised and displayed correctly on the small screen of the smartphones. Your candidates will experience a mobile-optimised page fitted properly to their mobile device. Career section will be optimised for viewing on smartphones and tablets.
VIEW JOB DESCRIPTIONS
Your job descriptions will be easily readable by the prospective candidates without modifying your current job descriptions on the desktop version of the page. Even embedded images and videos will be automatically adjusted and resized to fit the resolution of the smartphone or tablet.
Candidates will be able to apply immediately, while on the move. No more waiting to get to a laptop or desktop computer. Application forms will be adjusted to display all the information correctly whatever the device. You can capture exactly the same set of candidate data as you would via a browser on the PC. It is even possible for candidates to apply using their own LinkedIn profiles.
We implement industry best design practices to ensure your mobile career section is optimised and delivers a professional and efficient job application experience to all candidates. We do not interfere with your existing candidate selection process; the solution seamlessly integrates with the native Taleo forms and Career Sections.
