Candidates can apply for jobs at Sodexo through an app on their smartphones.
The new jobs app allows would-be employees to search and apply for Sodexo jobs in the United States by keyword, discipline or location. They can also subscribe to job alerts, access a mobile career site and network with employees. The food-service firm developed the app in response to the popularity of smartphones. Studies show that most 18- to 34-year-olds own smartphones, and 62% of them download apps.
A study by Beyond.com reported that 77% of job-seekers use mobile apps to search for jobs.
The Sodexo jobs app is available for iPhone, iPad and Android-based devices. A BlackBerry version is in development.
