The first ever conference dedicated to Mobile & Video In Recruitment was announced today (22/07/10) by Mike Taylor from Online Recruitment Marketing Specialists, Web Based Recruitment. The conference will take place in London on Tuesday 28th September 2010.
Having already run two very successful Social Media in Recruitment Conferences in the last 12 months (July 2009 and April 2010) Taylor is looking forward to another successful conference, this time aimed at helping forward thinking Recruiters get the most from using both Mobile and Video in Recruitment.
“Whilst both mobile and online video have been around for a while I think that 2010 will turn out to be a key year in terms of their application in recruitment” explained Taylor. “The fact that YouTube now serves two billion videos a day and the fact that by 2013 Smart Phone sales will overtake the sale of PCs simply can’t be ignored from a recruitment perspective.”
Gone are the days where you could only view a web site on your PC or laptop. Today there are many different internet enabled devices which means that job seekers can view details about your company and vacancies anytime, anywhere and practically on any device. If you add to that the fact that the Mobile Internet will shortly account for more than 50% of all internet access in the UK it is clear that companies need to be thinking seriously about how to incorporate mobile as part of their recruitment marketing strategy.
Until recently the majority of recruitment advertising was text based. However, with the increased availability of broadband access (and faster speeds) it has never been easier to view videos through a mobile device, laptop or PC. Video can say so much more than text and people are five times as likely to retain information from what they see and hear as opposed to just reading. By utilising online video to compliment their existing recruitment marketing activities there is a great opportunity for Recruiters to promote their company and vacancies and gain a competitive advantage at the same time.
The Conference Programme will feature an excellent mixture of leading industry speakers, case studies and an interactive discussion panel.
By the end of the conference delegates will have learnt the impact that mobile and video is currently having in recruitment, how it will develop in the future and how they can start to implement mobile and video strategies to gain an advantage in their own business.
“Mobile & Video can no longer be considered as a passing fad” continued Taylor. “They are both very much here to stay and will play a big part in recruitment, now and in the future. So join us on the 28th September 2010 to find out how your company can benefit from using Mobile & Video in Recruitment!”
