Due to an increased competition for the most qualified employees, organizations strive to shorten their hiring cycles as studies found that delays in recruitment have negative effects on the employers' attractiveness for applicants. Thus, an efficient recruiting process within organizations is gaining importance to prevent applicants from hiring at a competing organization. Thereby, mobile applications can increase the performance of business processes, e. g. by eliminating media breaks or making information available. However, only certain aspects of the recruiting process are covered by previous work (e. g. employer branding) and the underlying recruiting process within organizations is completely omitted. To address this lack of research, we design and implement a mobile recruiting application "MobiRecruit" that supports the recruiting process. Thereby, we apply design science research to deduce meta-requirements and design principles that are later incorporated by MobiRecruit.
