FAQs about text recruiting.
What is and isn’t appropriate to text to a prospect?
Some things shouldn’t be said over SMS. (Here’s looking at you, relationship break-ups.) If a candidate has made it through a couple of rounds of interviews, you shouldn’t send a “We’re sorry, you didn’t get the job” text. That’s a phone call.
And use email to send sensitive documents like employment contracts, or to negotiate salaries. You can text them a heads up to check their email though.
But for quick and simple messages, like interview reminders, follow-ups, or job alerts, SMS for recruiting is ideal.
What should I look for in a texting service for recruitment?
Great question. Look for a texting service that easily integrates with the platforms and tools your team uses today.
Plus, one that makes it as easy as possible for your recruiters to hit the ground running with SMS — and free up their time to focus on hiring top talent.
