If a company wants to be taken seriously then they need to be permanently accessible by mobile and by email, accessed through mobile telecommunications. If company recruiters want to attract the best people to jobs within a company, it makes sense for them to be contactable at all times so that the applicants can get answers and not disappear to another, more accessible company.
No, company recruiters should not be required to be available at all, because it should be their choice to determine their recruiting process. A business might be dependent on mobile technology, and they might not be. They should be allowed to recruit in any way that they choose, by phone, email, fax, or post office.
Job applicants do not need availability around the clock. They just need to be confident that when they do attempt to get in contact, they will be responded to quickly. It seems to me job recruiters being available on mobile devices at nearly all times would cause unnecessary strain on said company.
While this should not be implemented, necessarily, companies should be required to have job recruiters available at high-volume call times, as well as throughout the work hours of regular business hours
No, there should not be a requirement for company recruiters to be available by mobile devices at any time for job applicants. When a company recruiter wants to hire someone, they will. It is not acceptable to force a company recruiter to be available at a certain time or via a certain device. This decision should be solely up to the recruiter and the firm employing the recruiter.
