Industries are rapidly changing, technology is quickly advancing and a generation born in the digital age is entering the workforce.

To ensure you’re using the best recruitment strategies it is important to both understand and implement the best hiring practices.

1. Mobile friendly

Using a mobile friendly career site is a crucial part of recruitment in the digital age. In fact, about 83% of people use their mobile phone to search for jobs. Therefore, if the career page you’re using does not convert to a mobile device, you may be missing out on these candidates.

To ensure you are getting the best employees, it is crucial to use a career site which has a mobile friendly layout.

2. Video resumes and job postings

Using video presentations to broadcast new job postings has become a new and effective tool for companies. These videos allow the viewer to gain a deeper insight that regular job postings may not provide.

In fact, some companies, like ISR Training & Recruitment, have even begun to implement video resumes into their practices.

Furthermore, implementing videos into your hiring practice can allow for creativity, a strong call to action and details beyond the limits of text.
