New mobile experience bridges the gap between employers and mobile job seekers to make it faster and easier to connect with the most relevant jobs on the go
Sunnyvale, Calif. – September 24, 2013 –Simply Hired® today introduced an enhanced mobile experience for candidates and recruiters at m.simplyhired.com. The mobile experience debuts new functionality and intuitive design to help candidates quickly and easily connect with the most relevant job opportunities wherever - and whenever - they choose to search.
m.simplyhired.com introduces functionality and features that enable users to take full advantage of mobile devices during their job search and enjoy a seamless experience as they switch back and forth between mobile and desktop in their job search process. When candidates are ready to act on an opportunity, the new experience also offers a complete mobile application flow that enables candidates to save, email and apply (for participating Employers) in one click.
"Mobile is a crucial part of the job search equation for candidates and recruiters; we are seeing more than 1/3 of our traffic come from mobile devices today and this is only growing,” said James Beriker, president and CEO of Simply Hired. "Our new mobile experience ensures that candidates can take full advantage of job search on their terms, while providing recruiters with new options for participating in mobile without having to undertake a full-scale mobile initiative.”
