It never hurts to get back to basics with candidates. What they want? How do they behave? And how do employers find and hire the best?
A number of companies have done large surveys of employers and job seekers to research and quantify the answers to those questions. Below I’ve collected some of the most important and interesting numbers from several notable surveys about hiring and job seeking in the year 2015.
The Mobile Candidate
- 47% of job seekers search on mobile in bed, 38% while commuting, 30% on the job, and 18% in the bathroom1
- 38% of candidates learn about opportunities on mobile devices, with a 90% increase from 2013 to 20142
