How Mobile Technology Is Changing the Field of Communication

How Mobile Technology Is Changing the Field of Communication | How the Mobile Revolution Is Changing Business Communication | Scoop.it

Mobile technology has changed the nature of the modern workforce beyond all recognition. Local businesses play on a global stage and employees are no longer restricted to working in one location. Widespread adoption of technology has also had significant effects on how businesses communicate, changing the way they converse with consumers, stakeholders, and third parties."

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

 

"The rapidly changing landscape presents a unique challenge to communication students. Although most will already graduate with skills ranging from demonstrable creativity to negotiation and critical evaluation, the rise of mobile technology forces majors to adapt and broaden their skill set to take on the challenge sufficiently. While businesses do not expect communication majors to graduate with the same skills as a computer science or information technology major, they do expect an understanding of the drivers in the trend toward mobile."

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.
