Following in the footsteps of mobile evolution and success, CareerBuilder has recently prepared to debut their mobile capabilities that utilize artificial intelligence, augmented reality, gamification, hyper-localized search, and more.
“CareerBuilder has put a stake in the ground in wanting to ‘own’ the mobile experience for talent acquisition and job search,” said Kyle Lagunas, Research Manager at IDC. “This is a strategic move and differentiator in the midst of a mobile-first world and complex labor environment. CareerBuilder’s investment in incorporating AI and machine learning across their solutions and within their mobile offering is designed to bring a richer, more intuitive experience that expedites results for employers and candidates.”
