With An iPhone And Jobscience You May Never Go To The Office Again

How long have we been talking about mobile recruiting? Finally, someone has done something more about it than simply enable job posting and “received your application” messaging.

Jobscience unveiled an iPhone app in London today that will let you source a resume database from a park bench, the airport terminal, or anywhere you have connectivity. When you find the right contact you can reach out however you think best — email, text message, social network post, or that other thing iPhones do, voice call.

The mobile application works with the ATS offerings available on Salesforce.com’s AppExchange. Jobscience uses the Force.com platform for the applications it offers, including ATS solutions for large and small businesses, staffing agency software, and others. Because of that flexibility, users can add on other applications available through the AppExchange.

Besides searching the company database via an iPhone, recruiters and hiring managers can create and manage job reqs and postings, handle scheduling, and do virtually (no pun intended) anything they can from their desktop.

  1. This technology helps the evolution of recruiting through the Eliminate, Automate, or Outsource “Triple Play” of focusing on the high-touch, high-value add, high pay activities of the “Professional Sports Model” where there are relatively few but quite well-compensated elite executive and niche recruiters performing in areas not susceptible to this, quite a lot of folks (mainly offshore) paid $800-$2,500/mo. for the areas which can be done virtually and susceptible to the Triple Play, and not too many mid-level, middle class US-based recruiters and sourcers anymore.
