According to Ofcom over a quarter of all adults now own Smart Phones, furthermore in November 2011 Google reported that over 17% of people sampled use a smart phone to find their next job. In the light of this and the continuing trend in this direction, Brand Republic Jobs felt the need to adopt technology such as iPhone Apps to maintain its wide job market reach. The increase in mobile traffic in the last year goes some way towards proving the importance of this type of technology in the job seeking process.
Nick Wells, Marketing Manager for Brand Republic Jobs, comments: “We appreciate how competitive the recruitment market place is becoming, with job seekers demanding new services to be able to fit job seeking into their busy daily lives. iPhone access allows job seekers to keep up with their job search whilst on the move, finding (and applying) jobs quickly and easily.”
