McDonald’s is the only company in the Fortune 500 list of the US’s largest corporations which met all six criteria for mobile readiness in its careers or jobs site, as defined by mobile talent solutions firm iMomentous.
The 'Corporate Mobile Readiness Report' found that 141 companies had a mobile-optimised corporate site, but just 65 – 13% of the companies listed – had a mobile-optimised career sections.
Only 11 companies had a mobile-optimised application process.
Ed Newman, vice president of Strategy for iMomentous, says: “If the Fortune 500 is struggling to embrace the mobile web, it is likely that most other organisations are lagging behind as well.”
This report roughly correlates with views this side of the Atlantic. In May, recruiter.co.uk reported the views of social recruiting expert Matt Alder that mobile-optimised corporate career sites are “terrible”.
