LinkedIn on Wednesday announced the introduction of a mobile app, linkedIn Recruiter to aid job recruitment on the go. Albeit, the company had made available various recruiter tools on the web version of the social network, a mobile app to cover same purpose had been lacking before now.

LinkedIn Recruiter is aimed to enable job seekers pitch for potential employers on the go, via mobile devices, as mostly this top executives with final decision making powers are always on the go following their usual busy schedules.

The company puts it that people are more mobile than ever before, while recruiters and the recruiting process, are still chained to the desktop, which has made it painstakingly difficult for candidates to search for, discover and apply for jobs via mobile. And this has also limited users productivity because they can’t interact with candidates and hiring managers while on the go.

Recruiter Mobile is free to existing LinkedIn Recruiter customers and is available today in the App Store for iPhone users. Not an iPhone user? You can also access it from your mobile device’s web browser at www.linkedIn.com/recruiter.
