4G… TAKES MOBILE WORKING TO THE NEXT LEVEL
4G has meant that employees have been able to work more effectively than ever been before; whilst on the road, at a hotel, in an airport or at home. A 4G service is fast enough to enable high-quality video conferencing and means you can connect with cloud-based services as easily as you could from the office or a broadband connection.
This will help to create a borderless office and soon recruiters will be screening candidates for the ability to work effectively as a mobile worker as opposed to an office based worker. This has huge benefits for both candidates and employers. Limitations and constraints of working life begin to shrink and opportunities continue to grow with advancing modern technology.
4G… ALLOWS MOBILE PHONE VIDEO INTERVIEWING
4 G was made for video streaming, which means that you can conduct mobile-based video conferences like never before. For employers &recruiters, this means that you can arrange high quality, reliable, HD standard mobile video interviews between candidates and multiple interviewers – all operating from mobile phones and tablets.
Recruiters can connect with a mobile workforce and a mobile candidate market in an extremely flexible and professional way throughout the world – something which was not so easily achieved with 3G.
4G… MEANS JOB APPLICATIONS… ANYWHERE
4G has made it much easier for mobile users to gain more stable access to cloud based services. Previously if you are using web or mobile-based job applications systems, mobile phone-based users would have struggled to engage with these as the connection would be unstable & difficult to use. Plus, attaching documents like CVs was always a challenge.
4G enables job seekers to apply for jobs online via their phones very easily. This makes the process faster, more reliable and more user friendly. It increases your ability to reach the companies you want to target, whenever you want you the time, rather than waiting till you get home.

4G… ENABLES VIDEO BUSINESS AND PEOPLE PROFILING
This is one area that is set to change dramatically. Up to now business branding has been webpage led. As the entirety of the candidate marketplace become able to effortlessly stream video through their smart-phones on the go, employer and candidate branding has the opportunity to become video or YouTube channel led rather than just using a standard web page.
In a couple of year’s time, we could see more and more job seekers with visual CVs, videos and profiles being publicized via YouTube. Employers could reach potential candidates with targeted video adverts and webcasts, rather than dull stiff corporate career web pages.
Will we even see interactive career based TV channels from employers and candidates alike?
