BROKERHUNTER TAKES RECRUITING ON THE GO WITH MOBILE
BROKERHUNTER, a leader in online recruitment advertising for the Financial Services industry, launches new responsive platform to meet the growing demands of the site's mobile audience. The new BROKERHUNTER website features the latest innovations in job board technology by Madgex. The responsive design delivers the best possible user experience to both candidates and recruiters. The new site benefits from increased speed and consistent viewing by delivering full content and functionality across all devices.

Employers now have the ability to search on the go. Sourcing and viewing applicants is no longer a task just for the office, it is now available whenever and wherever you are. Another advantage is the consistency between devices, which provides a better user experience and a less frustrating search for talent.
"With so many different devices and sites becoming available as part of the digital experience, it was important that we build a site that offers immersive, rich online and mobile environments that meets consumers' expectations across all channels," said Jeff Testerman, cofounder of BROKERHUNTER.com.
The BROKERHUNTER job board, designed to work on any device, makes job searching even easier for candidates no matter where they are and increases your pipeline. The new site is available to view at: www.brokerhunter.com.
