Businesses are often asked to hire a team of experts in their field and then put in hours for their people.
Some companies even require that the job offer is submitted to a small number of people in order to secure a high-caliber candidate.
But as we have seen in recent years, this practice is becoming less common as companies increasingly rely on mobile technologies to streamline their processes.
According to research from consulting firm Rimkus Consulting, in 2016, only 8% of the top 50 U.S. tech companies were using mobile technologies for their job postings.
While it’s easy to think of mobile as a substitute for traditional paper, the reality is much different.
Mobile technology has been used by more than half of the Fortune 500 companies and has been responsible for more than 90% of new hires in the last five years, according to Rimkus.
And mobile technology isn’t limited to jobs in technology.
More than one in three jobs in the tech industry are now based on a mobile app, and mobile-first companies like Uber are gaining traction in many areas of the world.
