Job seekers can complete application processes from any mobile device
Norfolk, VA (November 5, 2013) – HireFuel, a pre-hire, front end recruitment solution, has become the first to include a fully comprehensive mobile resume upload feature. Integrated with services such as DropBox, Box.net, Evernote and Google Drive, job seekers can now upload resume files stored within a cloud hosting service to complete the application process from a mobile device as easily as from a desktop computer. HireFuel, a division of Dominion Enterprises, is a developer of mobile-optimized, cloud-based recruitment software.
The online job application process generally requires job seekers to upload their digital resume. For the recruitment industry, uploading digital files through mobile devices has been a difficult feature to develop. This challenge becomes more significant as data shows a growing trend of job seekers utilizing their mobile devices to search and apply for jobs.
- 77% of job seekers use mobile job search apps, according to Beyond.com
- 30% of traffic to job search engine SimplyHired now comes from mobile devices and is estimated to reach 50% by 2015
- From 2012 to 2013, niche boards such as EmploymentGuide.com and HealthCareerWeb.com have seen a 96% increase in mobile traffic
- Direct employer UPS has 20% of its hires apply via a mobile device
