The 3 Most Common Mistakes Of Mobile Recruiting

SmartRecruiters

Even if you live under a rock, in the middle of a dense forest, surrounded by a desert wasteland, you still know that recruiting is now a mobile game. If you assume the recommended eight hours of sleep, this means that 25 percent of a peron’s waking day is spent on a mobile device.
