MANILA, 17 January 2018 — Just as in 2017, the jobs market will continue to witness the rise of mobility for recruitment uses in 2018.

About 9 in 10 jobseekers find their mobile device an important tool for job searching. More importantly, about half use it to search for a job every single day.

But only 3 or less out of 10 companies optimally use their websites for mobile devices. This is according to cloud-based human resources firm PageUp. By 2020, mobile devices will be the most common way to search for jobs within two years.

Meanwhile, social recruiting strategies will continue to ramp up for 2018. Companies will strengthen their employer brand and actively manage their Glassdoor rating. But just like in mobile devices, so far less than half maximize their social media recruitment activities.

Moreover, a number of companies have been preparing for the advent of artificial intelligence in the workplace. However, more than 6 out of 10 still do not optimize AI specifically for HR purposes.

For companies to catch up on candidate expectations, they are expected to adopt mobility and AI in the HR process.

Chatbots for Jobs

AI tech makes processing candidate applications and improving recruitment strategies faster, according to digital marketing and recruitment website 4MAT. Moreover, it can “sift through hundreds of CVs and ‘pull’ out promising ones based on the keywords they contain.”

In addition, AI improves methods for attracting candidates. Also, it can act as a chatbot on recruitment websites and analyze data to “streamline the candidate funnel and decrease drop-off rates.”

And just like last year, social media will continue to become a novel battleground for recruitment this year. LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, etc. will have huge potentials in helping companies build a reputation and reach out to job candidates.
