Whether you manage hiring for a company with many employees or work with a Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) organization, streamlining recruitment and the entire candidate communication process ubiquitously remain the key necessities for successfully onboarding new talent. As the war for talent keeps burgeoning due to extremely low unemployment rates in many regions among other factors, recruiting and hiring experts are now challenged to navigate more efficient technologies and better methods of sourcing and engaging candidates. Highlighting the same, Christopher Lang, CEO of Mobile Talent shares that the need for engaging larger qualified candidate pools and reducing time to hire are more pressing than ever, “The time has come for companies to put the pedal to the metal and take advantage of the latest technology tools to attract their target candidates and stay connected with them in real time.” To this end, his firm brings forth state-of-the-art mobile recruiting SaaS solutions to help recruiters locate, connect and engage with more relevant job seekers right on their mobile devices.

Mobile Talent’s simple, user-friendly platform brings efficiency and transparency between recruiters and job seekers and streamlines the communication between them. The platform comes with TCPA and GDPR compliant SMS communication tools and has in-built chatbots that assist recruiters to instantly and efficiently engage with job seekers.

The candidate experience is extremely simple, enabling interested parties to enter their details in a mobile-first environment in minutes.
