Although the use of mobile devices in job searches has increased, still 94 percent of job seekers say they are most likely to use their computer to search for their next job, according to digital advertising agency HireClix.
Sixty-four percent said they are likely to use their phone for their job search, while 68 percent of job seekers over age 45 said they are likely to use their phone in their job search. Only 30 percent of people surveyed said they would consider using offline resources, like newspapers, magazines, etc., in their job search.
“The takeaway for employers and recruiters is that they need to have a multi-faceted recruitment marketing and hiring strategy”, said Neil Costa, founder and CEO of HireClix. “It’s not enough to post job opening on job boards. We are seeing a major shift in how people will spend their recruiting dollars in 2014.”
HireClix’s surveyed more than 1,000 US job seekers this summer.
