SFN Group Launches Mobile Job Alerts

November 29, 2010 – Recruiting giant SFN Group has announced the launch of its text messaging program, which is the first of several phases to enhance the candidate experience to gain quicker and more efficient access to jobs through mobile technologies. Job seekers can now participate in the program if they opt-in to receive text job alerts via the “Job Centers” located on two of SFN's specialist recruiting and staffing businesses' websites, The Mergis Group and Spherion Staffing Services. The program will be rolled out nationally, across all SFN's family of businesses in early 2011. “With millions of people carrying mobile devices, texting is becoming a much more efficient and preferred means of communicating for many passive and active job seekers. In an industry where time is of the essence, this form of communicating provides the means to reach a wider and highly targeted audience in a much shorter time span,” said Roy Krause, president and CEO. “With studies showing that mobile Internet use is set to outpace PC connection use — it is clear just how powerful this medium is and will continue to be as the technology evolves.”
