Have You Prepared Your Business Communication Students for a Mobile Job Search?

As companies continue to adapt mobile communication throughout the enterprise, one area with immediate concern for students is the job search process.


Companies know that today’s job hunters are a mobile crowd—and many companies want to make their recruiters more productive by making them mobile-enabled as well.

Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's insight:


Perhaps no other aspect of business communication is changing as rapidly as employment communication. Only a few years ago, candidates mailed in paper résumés that were perused one at a time or optically scanned.


Today, most medium and large companies require candidates to apply online, where their qualifications are often auto-filtered by applicant tracking systems.


And now that online process is expanding to mobile, as more companies create mobile-friendly recruiting websites and career apps for mobile devices.


Only Bovee and Thill cover mobile business communication and employment. In fact, Bovee and Thill cover mobile communication in every chapter of their texts.

Are You Going to Adopt a Modern "Essentials" Textbook?


Are you going to adopt a modern “Essentials” textbook with extensive integration of mobile communication in every chapter, or are you going to saddle your students with a commonly adopted “Essentials” text that is stuck in the last decade?


Bovee & Thill's Online Magazines for Business Communication's insight:


Because of complacency and a lack of knowledge about the topic, most business communication textbook authors are ignoring the mobile revolution. In fact, they’re pretending that it doesn’t even exist.


In light of these facts, are your students being served well? There is one team that’s always on the cutting edge: Bovee and Thill. The fact they are the only business communication textbook authors currently writing about mobile tells you everything you need to know about which author team conscientiously revises its books and keeps them current. (Bovee and Thill were also the first authors to discuss social media and digital communication in their texts.)


Adopt the only modern "Essentials" text: Business Communications Essentials by Bovee and Thill.
