New site makes it easier than ever to search and apply for SSM Health jobs
via smartphones and other mobile devices
Applying for a job at SSM Health just got a little easier with the development of a new mobile-friendly careers website that allows the applicant to apply with ease from a mobile device. In Oklahoma, St. Anthony Hospital, Bone and Joint Hospital at St. Anthony, St. Anthony Shawnee Hospital, and St. Anthony Physicians Group are included as members of SSM Health.
In fact, most first-time job applicants visiting SSM Health’s new careers website, ssmhealthcareers.com, apply for a job in under 4 minutes. And returning users can apply even quicker with information saved in a profile.
According to industry research, more than 4 of 5 job applicants use their mobile devices to begin a job search and more than 2 of 3 want to be able to apply via mobile device.
“It’s a trend that’s received the attention of recruiters across all industries, including the health care industry,” according to Thomas Ahr, System Vice President of Talent Management at SSM Health. “As a society we do everything from shop, to watch TV and read news on our smartphones, so why not apply for a job on them as well? There’s no doubt that the industry trend on the recruiting front is all about being mobile-friendly. In today’s recruiting environment, it’s important for us to be focused more than ever on the candidate experience.”
The new SSM Health careers site can be accessed quickly by users of Android, Apple IOS, and other mobile device platforms. In recent months, SSM Health has also started engaging job applicants via texting, guiding them throughout the application and recruiting process and giving them another quick and easy way to stay in touch.
“We wanted to make it simple, easy and hassle-free for people looking to find and apply for a career at SSM Health,” Ahr said. “The good news is that our efforts are working. We’ve seen increased website traffic and a jump in applications since we launched our new careers site in trial mode earlier this year.”
In fact, nearly 33 percent of the job applicants are currently using the feature to apply since it launched. Our careers site now averages more than 80,000 visits each month.
Other features of the new mobile-friendly careers website at SSM Health include sign-up for job alerts, emailing jobs to friends, sharing jobs via social media channels and an interactive jobs map.
