Hey kids, it’s The Shred for September 12, 2018, brought to you by Judge.com. Whether you’re moving your systems to the cloud, building out a team for your next project, finding healthcare talent for your organization, filling that mission critical direct hire to lead your team, or training your employees on the latest technology, Judge.com can deliver to ensure your organization’s long-term growth. To the news: CareerBuilder has revamped its mobile app for devices like the iPhone and iPad – not yet, Android users, sorry. The new app makes a big bet on augmented reality. This is where you use your phone’s camera, point it down a busy street and see virtual Help Wanted signs on the buildings you see. From there you can apply online. In a release, the company called this a “major industry disruption,” but augmented reality has yet to take hold. Aside from Pokemon Go, AR as it’s called has been kind of a dud. Some listeners will remember an app called Job Compass that used a lot of this kind of tech, but it never really caught on. Maybe this time it’s different for CareerBuilder. Or, maybe it’s not. In the month’s ahead, CareerBuilder says it will be adding gamification elements to the mobile app, enabling users to earn points and badges for usage. Be sure to tune into the weekly show for deeper opinion on news you hear on The Shred. Once again, thanks to our sponsor Judge.com.
