Responsive design and/or dedicated recruitment website design…
RecruiterWEB offers clients two options when it comes to their mobile recruitment website presence — a responsive design or a dedicated mobile design. Here are the pros and cons of each:
Responsive recruitment website design
Responsive, in most cases, has become the default offering from vendors. In essence, it takes a design that is made to suit desktop screens in landscape format and reorders items of that design to fit the smaller screen of mobile devices.
Pros: Cheap to do, and highly elaborate design can be preserved on mobile in most cases.
Cons: Responsive design can be slow due to an elaborate design. Some items won’t scale down well, making for poor user experience. Features do not always translate — applying for jobs can be made more difficult for users on a responsive design.
Dedicated mobile recruitment website design
In 2007, RecruiterWEB brought to market the world’s first dedicated recruitment website offering. We built the website into the core CMS, so you had decided mobile and desktop design options all on one CMS, improving over the other market options where a second site was needed and placed on a MySite URL.
Pros: Better user experience as the design is made for mobile, faster than responsive design, and can be fully customised for mobile SEO, so it’s better for matching to voice search queries in tools such as Siri and Alexa, etc.
Cons: Elaborate designs are dumbed down to ensure they run more effectively on mobile.
