ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HealthITJobs.com announced today it has launched two mobile applications so busy healthcare IT professionals can search for employment on their smart phones. The two native apps for iPhone and Android position the company as the industry leader in using mobile technology for employment search and recruitment.
With over 300 million mobile subscribers in the U.S. and half of American adults owning smartphones, people are using mobile devices more than computers to access the web. Everything from banking to shopping to gaming has gone mobile, and career searching is following suit.
“As smartphone adoption continues to outpace computers, it’s driving a change in how people look for employment and in how employers interact with potential hires,” says Tim Cannon, Vice President, Product Management for HealthITJobs.com. Recruiters around the country are developing mobile recruiting strategies to connect with potential candidates. The HealthITJobs.com mobile apps allow job seekers to stay connected wherever they are and manage their careers with ease and flexibility.
“Creating native apps for both iPhone and Android was important to us,” explains Cannon. “This allowed us to take advantage of all the phones’ functionality and provide the best user experience.” Users will also appreciate the fact that the app is fully synchronized with the website. Saved searches, applications, and messages are updated in real time on both the app and the website.
The new mobile apps aim to make it easier for organizations to get their opportunities in front of health IT consultants, and for job seekers to stay informed about available health IT jobs. Candidates can conduct an advanced health IT job search using the app or save the search and receive real-time alerts on their phones when new jobs matching their criteria become available. When a job interests them, they can apply with minimal effort using their LinkedIn profile.
In an industry facing a talent shortage, utilizing mobile to connect job candidates with employers is especially important. The new mobile apps from HealthITJobs.com open up a new channel for delivering health IT jobs straight to the smartphones of busy healthcare IT consultants – ensuring health IT jobs don’t stay vacant for long.
