CareerBuilder’s new app enables employers to sync directly to their existing CareerBuilder accounts and provides the following features:
- Employers can call, email, or send a letter to the applicant directly from their iPhone
- Employers can save a candidate to a folder in their CareerBuilder account for later review
- Employers can flip through applicants by swiping left or right on the application or use the page button at the top right
- Employers can receive push notifications when new applications are available for review
According to a 2011 nationwide CareerBuilder study of 2,600 employers and 5,000 workers, nearly one-in-five, 18 to 34-year-old job seekers reported they search for jobs and research companies using mobile devices. However, when it comes to communicating to this audience, the majority of employers (70 percent) reported that their corporate career site is not mobile-friendly.
CBmobile, CareerBuilder’s Mobile Solutions, gives employers the ability to launch mobile device-optimized versions of their career site for Android, iPhone, or Blackberry devices. CBmobile ensures that company career sites are optimized and accessible to all job seekers, no matter how they are accessing a company’s open positions.
CBmobile also enables employers to create a custom app that job seekers can download or revamp their current career site with mobile-friendly features, as well as Facebook and Twitter integration. Both solutions also include custom QR codes that can direct job seekers to career sites from an iPhone or Android device.
