Canton, Ohio (PRWEB) March 08, 2013
There’s no doubt that the United States is becoming a “mobile society.” Every year, an increasing number of people own smartphones and/or tablet devices for both personal and professional use.
Part of that use involves searching for jobs and employment opportunities. As a result, it’s becoming more important for staffing and recruiting firms to have websites that are “responsive” in nature.
With “responsive design” technology, a website is presented in a format that’s customized and optimized for the way in which a person is viewing it. As such, the way it looks on a personal computer differs from the way it looks on a smartphone, giving the end user a better overall experience.
As was reported last month by Top Echelon, a company dedicated to helping recruiters make more placements, only 15% of recruiting firms have websites with “responsive design.” That clearly isn’t enough to keep up with the ever-increasing demands of mobile technology.
Hiring Hook, a product of Top Echelon, provides website solutions for recruiting and staffing firms. Among those solutions are full-build websites and website re-design, and as part of those solutions, Hiring Hook also offers “responsive design.”
According to Hiring Hook Website Consultant Mike McRae, more recruiting firm and staffing firm owners are choosing to update their firm’s website with “responsive design.”
“Technology overall is moving in one direction right now, and that’s in the mobile direction,” said McRae. “Mobile technology will continue to accelerate over the next several years, and that acceleration will have a definite impact on the Internet, including how people search the Internet and how they view website pages.
“Candidates and job seekers are increasingly looking for jobs and new career opportunities on their smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices. As a result, it’s imperative for recruiting and staffing firm owners to have websites that are tailored to the way people look for recruiters and search for jobs. Hiring Hook’s ‘responsive design’ service offers firm owners the solution they need to maximize their websites.”
In addition to “responsive design,” recruiting and staffing firm owners can also choose to purchase the Hiring Hook Job Board. With the Job Board, recruiters are able to post jobs to their firm's website and also have the option of posting them to LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter to attract qualified candidates.
Top Echelon was founded in 1988 in Canton, Ohio.
