Atlanta Employers Convene To Discuss Mobile Recruitment

-- TheLadders Hosts JobMobile Atlanta to Celebrate Industry Thought Leaders --

Oct 28, 2013, 09:06 ET from TheLadders

ATLANTA, Oct. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Tomorrow, professional job-matching service TheLadders will bring together Atlanta's employers and recruiters for JobMobile Atlanta, the fourth stop in the tech company's 2013 nationwide event series. The gathering will celebrate innovation in mobile recruitment, offering Atlanta's hiring professionals a unique opportunity to learn how mobile technology is disrupting the industry. TheLadders currently has more than 4,300 open positions listed in Atlanta, with an average salary of $105,000.

"The job-search evolution from the web to mobile devices could be as significant as the transition from print classifieds to online job postings," said TheLadders CEO & Co-founder Alex Douzet. "Our robust community of more than 60,000 recruiters, thousands of whom reside in Atlanta, is constantly looking for new ways to identify and connect with the best talent. In response, we launched the JobMobile event series to address best practices and challenges associated with emerging mobile technologies."

Earlier this year, TheLadders turned a critical eye on its own strategy and restructured its service with a mobile-first, web-second approach – initially with its mobile-responsive website, and most recently with its innovative iPhone app, Job Search by TheLadders. Optimizing short windows of time for on-the-go job seekers, the first-of-its-kind mobile app breaks the construct that a successful job-search app should mimic the online experience.

In addition to sharing its own best practices at JobMobile, where Douzet will serve as the keynote speaker, TheLadders will host an esteemed panel of Atlanta's industry thought leaders to spark conversation about mobile recruiting. Talent-acquisition professionals from The Home Depot, Adcap Network Systems, Avanade Inc., and TrueBridge Resources, will share their recruiting experiences with mobile technology. Following the speaker presentations, 70 individuals will be inducted into TheLadders ELITE, an exclusive honor reserved for the top 1 percent of recruiting professionals in the Atlanta area.

More than 1,200 of the city's employers use TheLadders for their hiring needs. JobMobile Atlanta is a free event open to all hiring professionals. For more information and to RSVP, please visit To view the full list of TheLadders ELITE honorees, visit TheLadders' RecruitBlog.
