Online recruitment has become the primary way applicants look for jobs, yet the "careers section" of most websites are static pages with vague company and contact information. They leave job seekers, especially Millennials, with a poor impression of the company and discourage candidates from engaging further Websites and online application processes that are not mobile-compatible also reduce an employer's likelihood of attracting and hiring Millennial talent. To be successful, recruiters must view their websites as marketing tools that vividly, and interactively demonstrate to candidates what opportunities are available and why they should want to work at the company.
