  1. Hi Jim,
    Really interesting post. I’m working on a new careers site that will have significant mobile integration in the near future. http://www.YourJobList.com is all about providing you with a tool to manage your career and track any new opportunities that arise, or manage your transition into a new role. It’s not your typical job site – i.e. it’s not a list of advertised jobs.
    When the mobile features arrive you will be able to see a summary of the recruiter/employer who is contacting you, including useful information like their star rating. I’ve found a lot of people struggle in dealing with the vast number of calls/emails that they often get from recruitment firms. We’ve got a variety of ways to try and deal with this. As you point out, I’d expect text messages to be the next major tool in the recruiters arsenal. I’ve had a few text me in the last week or so – so they are definitely starting to use this approach.
    Interesting post.
