randstad [1]In today’s competitive employment market, the mobile job search [2]is changing the way people look for jobs. According to Randstad Canada [3], the country’s leader for staffing, recruitment and HR Services, the ability to search for jobs anytime, from anywhere, can provide job seekers with a competitive edge by staying informed, quickly reacting to new job opportunities and getting in front of prospective employers.

Lauralee Guthrie, Digital & Social Media Director, Randstad Canada says she recognizes the role that mobile recruitment strategies now play in the way employers and candidates connect with one another. “People are relying more and more on mobile devices to interact with the world around them – and that trend extends into the job search process. Mobile job search apps allow users the accessibility to keep up with the latest job openings, and the ability to pursue new opportunities on their own mobile device,” she says.

Due to it’s convenience, more and more jobseekers are turning to the simplicity and speed of mobile tools to access jobs on the fly, says Guthrie. “One of the advantages of mobile job search tools is that you can hunt for new job opportunities while you’re riding the subway or the bus, or sitting in the waiting room,” she says.

With smartphones and tablets increasing in popularity, Guthrie says she anticipates job hunting to continue its fast-paced migration towards mobile and offers jobseekers the following tips when using mobile tools in their job search:

“Ulitizing the best apps, setting up job alerts, organizing contacts on your mobile device are all excellent ways to find jobs and network on your mobile device,” adds Guthrie. “But it’s important for job seekers not to depend solely on mobile as they search for a job. This is just one more tool to utilize in your hunt for your ideal job.”
