Jobscience Disrupts Job Seeker Experience with Specialized Mobile Job Search Web App

Mobile Job Search Web App Lets Job Seekers Search and Apply for Jobs from Smartphone

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Jobscience, the leader in recruiting engagement software, today announced the availability of Mobile Job Search Web App, the industry's first mobile user experience application designed specifically with the job seeker in mind. The Mobile Job Search Web App is a unified extension of the Jobscience's Staffing and Recruiting tools, and will give its customers one administration to manage all recruitment marketing sites, from job portals to social media feeds.

Eighty-three percent of people today search for jobs using a smartphone or tablet, which are designed for data consumption, not data entry. Whereas most recruiting companies offer a mobile-optimized website that simply takes the desktop experience and shrinks it for the smartphone, Jobscience has created a complete mobile experience that offers user-friendly content and simplified application process through Apply with LinkedIn. With Jobscience's Job Search Web App, job seekers can use a smartphone from the initial job search to the final submission.

"The lines between using a computer and a smartphone to find a job are becoming increasingly blurred," said Jan Schiffman, Product and Technology Leader at Jobscience. "The new generation of talent entering today's job market relies heavily on their mobile devices for everything, from finding a restaurant to finding a new job. Recruiters must shift their focus to providing quality candidate experiences to job seekers using mobile devices."

As smartphone usage continues to rise, so does mobile usage for job searching and application. 83% of job seekers use smartphones to search for jobs, and 85% still rely on desktops for filling out applications. Jobscience takes the best of the mobile app experience and the best of the browser experience and combines it into one tool that helps the mobile generation find jobs.

"Job seekers who go to an employer's site, or a traditional job search engine on their smartphone will find content is not effectively displayed, many functions don't work and it requires data entry effort that is hard on the smartphone itself," said Schiffman. "Jobscience combines intelligent browsing features, like auto-detection, with a mobile app experience that changes the way job seekers find jobs, and companies fill candidate pools."  

Mobile Job Search Web App auto-detects when a job seeker is searching on a company career page and immediately directs the user to the new mobile user experience to continue through the research and application process. Companies can use the new solution to synchronize mobile and desktop employment brands, while giving users fit-for-form functionality that leverages the benefit of their device.

Mobile Job Search Web App is available as an upgrade to the current version of Jobscience. There is no additional cost of configuration required. For more information, visit http://jobscience.com/2014-q2-release/.
