Applying for a job at Because Media just got a little easier with the development of a new mobile-friendly careers website that allows the applicants to browse and apply with ease from a mobile device.
In fact, most first-time job applicants visiting BM’s new careers website, bmmagjobs.com, apply for a job in a matter of time.
According to industry research, more than 4 of 5 job applicants use their mobile devices to begin a job search and more than 2 of 3 want to be able to apply via mobile device.
“It’s a trend that’s received the attention of recruiters across all industries, including the media and news industry,” according to Nkululeko Makhoba, System Vice President of Media Management at BM Careers Portal. “As a society we do everything from shop, to watch TV and read news on our smartphones, so why not apply for a job on them as well? There’s no doubt that the industry trend on the recruiting front is all about being mobile-friendly. In today’s recruiting environment, it’s important for us to be focused more than ever on the candidate experience.”
The new Because Media careers site can be accessed quickly by users of Android, Apple IOS, and other mobile device platforms. In recent months, BM has also started engaging job applicants via texting, guiding them throughout the application and recruiting process and giving them another quick and easy way to stay in touch.
“We wanted to make it simple, easy and hassle-free for people looking to find and apply for a career at Because Media,” Nkululeko said. “The good news is that our efforts are working. We’ve seen increased website traffic and a jump in applications since we launched our new careers site in trial mode earlier this year.”
