Citing a rapid rise in candidates using mobile devices for job search, Healthcare IT Leaders today announced the launch of its new mobile-friendly website.
The site utilizes responsive web design to provide a consistent user experience across all devices and browsers, and offers mobile-optimized job listings that let users easily browse, search, and apply for jobs using smartphones and tablets.
Healthcare IT Leaders matches premier talent to HIT consulting and permanent jobs at leading hospitals and health systems throughout the U.S. The company receives thousands of resumes a year through its website from individuals skilled in electronic medical record implementations, ICD-10, revenue cycle management and healthcare analytics.
Nationally, nearly 11 million workers search for jobs each month using mobile devices, according to recent ComScore data. That's up from 3.8 million workers in August 2012. The growth trend is mirrored at Healthcare IT Leaders.
“Increasingly, our candidates and clients use mobile devices to view our jobs, our blog and other web content. Twenty-one percent of our unique monthly visits now come from mobile devices, up from 13 percent in 2012,” said Alex Gramling, Healthcare IT Leaders Chief Marketing Officer.
Healthcare IT Leaders also offers a downloadable app to support mobile job seekers using Apple and Android phones and tablets. Candidates can view and apply for jobs on the app and can set job alerts that push notifications to their home screen each time a new job is found that fits their alert criteria.
The app can be found in the Google Play and Apple App Stores, and on the Mobile Apps page of the Healthcare IT Leaders website.
“Most Fortune 500 companies, and many staffing companies and job boards, still ignore the needs of mobile job seekers,” said Brad Elster, President of Healthcare IT Leaders. “With our mobile-optimized website and mobile job app, we’re committed to providing a superior candidate experience for mobile and desktop web users."
