Launching the Mobile Recruiting Guide 2012 (free so download it now!)

So that was a long break from blogging, in fact I think my longest ever. It wasn’t intentional at all, I was just fully absorbed in a number of interesting projects! As anyone who follows my Twitter ramblings will know though, I’ve spent most of the last few months doing even more detailed research and thinking into the implications of mass smart phone adoption and the growth of Mobile Recruitment.The highlight of this was undoubtedly attending the mRec conference in Atlanta last month. It was both fascinating and encouraging to hear how quickly companies like Pepsico, UPS and Microsoft are moving forward and implementing mobile apply processes and see the significant progress they had all made with mobile in general since last year’s event in San Francisco. I’m going to write more about the different approaches to mobile apply soon, particularly as I’ve found an employer in the UK who is already doing it well!I still feel the biggest issue with Mobile Recruiting is a lack of knowledge in the market and there is certainly a lack of easily accessible accurate information to help people fully understand what’s going on. I’m absolutely committed to change this and want to create as many free resources as possible. With that in mind I’m delighted to announcement that Mobile Dave and myself have just published the free Mobile Recruiting Guide 2012. You can instantly download it below and no registration is required




The guide is longer and much more detailed than the whitepaper we published last year. It covers a variety of topics and you can see an extract here in Dave’s recent ERE article. As an added bonus I’ve also made a YouTube recording available of a webinar on Mobile Recruiting I did for members of The Firm at the start of the summer.

really hope you find a lot of value in these two free resources and it would be great to get everyone’s feedback on what additional information is needed to really get Mobile Recruiting moving!

  1. Thanks for this, Dave & Matt it is clearly a mistake not to provide those interested in this report with the Choice to provide contact info. If hirers and media are going to work mobile and video effectively it makes sense to create a platform for dialogue as soon as possible. Why not get a breakfast briefing or round table format planned for end of year? I’m sure there will be obvious parties thinking about doing this, you guys should chair.

  2. With the sheer speed of developments within recruitment technology, guides like this are incredibly important. The shift from paper CVs to online recruitment solutions has been surprisingly gradual, but the momentum has now truly picked up, and certainly there is no going back.

    The technological developments in the recruitment process can assist both companies and job seekers equally, and both need to utilise such tools if they are going to thrive.

    The growth of sector specific recruitment agencies has also rocketed and with online tools increasingly leading the way, it has never been easier to develop an agency. Indeed there is even a site,, designed with the specific intention of helping individuals to develop their own online recruitment agencies.

    Certainly, recruitment is one sector that continues to grow, whilst many others struggle, and thus offers an attractive opportunity to a number of individuals.

    They are going mobile first is their design strategy.
