CHICAGO, July 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, online job-matching giant TheLadders will bring together Chicago's recruiting thought leaders for JobMobile Chicago, the third stop in the tech company's nationwide event series. The gathering will celebrate innovations and strategies in mobile recruitment, giving Windy City-hiring professionals an overview of how mobile technology is disrupting the industry.
"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 41,000 recruiters, thousands of whom reside in Chicago, 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 job-matching service through a mobile-first lens, first with its new mobile-responsive website, which is optimized to fit any screen, and most recently with its innovative iPhone app, Job Search by TheLadders. The first-of-its-kind mobile app eliminates keyword search, breaking the construct that a successful mobile job search needs to mimic the online experience.
In addition to sharing its own best practices at JobMobile, where Douzet will be the keynote speaker, TheLadders will host an esteemed panel of industry thought leaders to spark conversation about mobile recruiting. Talent-acquisition panelists from U.S. Cellular, the Chicago Museum of Science & Industry, iMomentous and Experis US, Inc., will share their professional experiences with mobile technology in recruiting. Furthermore, JobMobile will honor TheLadders ELITE, the top 1 percent of recruiting professionals in the Chicago area who acquire talent through TheLadders.
JobMobile Chicago, which will take place today, Thursday, July 18, 2013, is free and open to all recruiters and hiring professionals. For more information and to RSVP, please visit TheLadders.com/JobMobile. To view the full list of TheLadders ELITE honorees, visit TheLadders' RecruitBlog.
