Now, job seekers interested in joining Marriott International can search and apply for new career opportunities on their mobile device. Marriott is the first and only hospitality company to roll out this convenience as more professionals, especially millennials, are relying on their mobile devices to connect with potential employers.
Mobile web usage is accelerating globally. In 2013, there were almost as many mobile-cellular subscriptions as people in the world. Of the world’s 6 billion mobile phones, over 75% are located in the developing world where mobile phones are more affordable than computers.
“We recognize that the job hunt is changing rapidly,” said David Rodriguez, Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer. “Today, 70 percent of job seekers are using their mobile device to research their next career move. We believe that investing in new mobile technology is critical to attracting talent, especially millennials and those in emerging markets who depend on their mobile devices more than any other generation before them. With over 3800 hotels worldwide and continued, aggressive growth, we need to reach job seekers just as much as they need to reach us.”
Available on all smartphones, tablets, and feature phones, candidates can visit http://m.jobs.marriott.com or http://m.jobs.ritzcarlton.com to search and apply for jobs. They have the choice to type in their information or import it directly from their LinkedIn profile.
