recruitment company is still confident that the use of its free Wap job search
service will expand, even though only three people have been placed through it
since its September launch.
International, which entered into an agreement with phone manufacturer Nokia to
make available the Wap job search service to mobile operators across the world,
admitted that only three people had been placed in jobs since the service
began, despite the company receiving an average of 60 direct responses a week.
e-commerce director Alan Devlin believes the amount of people using the service
will pick up, as Wap phones become more popular.
“The potential for recruitment is tremendous. We’re experimenting in a growth
area. This service provides confidence to candidates because they can search
anywhere, access a job and apply from their phone.”
