Mobile Business Communication and Business Careers, Writing Resumes, and Applying and Interviewing for Employment

  1. 1. What You Should Be Teaching Your Students about Mobile Business Communication and Business Careers, Writing Resumes, and Applying and Interviewing for Employment
  2. 2. "Bovée and Thill are the only authors who explain and illustrate in every chapter how mobile is revolutionizing business communication. “Surprisingly, although we’re in the midst of a mobile revolution, no other business communication authors cover mobile business communication, which should tell you everything you need to know about which authors keep their textbooks current.”
  3. 3. A mobile device can be used to check out potential employers’ sites on the go; most are mobile-optimized, and some offer everything from background information on the work environment to application forms that can be filled out right on a smartphone or tablet.
  4. 4. In addition to researching companies and applying for openings, integrating a mobile device into a job search strategy can help with networking.
  5. 5. Job applicants can monitor their active job applications, schedule follow-up calls and emails, and know the moment an offer has been made.
  6. 6. Job applicants can enhance their personal branding and online portfolio by using social media and blogging apps on mobile devices.
  7. 7. Job seekers can tailor their resumes to new opportunities with resume-creation apps, keep track of business cards with scanning apps, and record post-interview impressions with note-taking apps.
  8. 8. Job interviewees can optimize the job interview process by staying on top of scheduling, using audio and video recording to practice interviews, and download meeting system apps (such as Cisco WebEx Meetings) so they’re available to interview even when they’re away from their computer.
  9. 9. Job applicants may be asked to take a job interview using Skype and should learn the essentials tips for preparing for and participating in a mobile online video interview.
