6 Top Tips For Effective Text Recruiting
Banks text payment reminders, restaurants text when a table is ready and retailers send coupons through text message. As a recruiter, do you text with job candidates? If not, you’re missing an opportunity to instantly capture the attention of top talent. Read on for six ways to attract and engage candidates through text recruiting.
Text Your Talent Community
Don’t let your content get buried in email—connect with top talent via text recruiting.
Leverage text campaigns to send your talent community links to employee-testimonial videos, exciting open positions, company updates and more. Through texting recruiting, increase the likelihood this content will be opened and viewed—not lost in an email inbox.
Text to Drive Qualified Candidates
Prevent in-demand candidates from postponing the application until they’re in front of a computer or dropping off due to a difficult apply process. Empower top talent to click into a text and apply from a mobile device, wherever they are. With a few clicks and streamlined text fields, recruiters receive the application in seconds to begin advancing candidates through the hiring process.
Post-application, differentiate the candidate experience by leveraging text campaigns to advance applicants through the recruitment pipeline. Reassure talent by thanking them for applying and communicate frequent updates throughout the hiring experience to keep job seekers engaged.
Text to Schedule Interviews Instantly
Reduce time to schedule an interview from days to seconds by eliminating back-and-forth emails or days of phone tag.
Schedule candidate interviews or phone screens in real-time by texting a link to self-schedule. Through self-service scheduling, reduce time-to-fill by bringing top talent to the office faster and improve the candidate experience by providing the power to instantly schedule interviews from a phone.
Continue to engage through text recruiting by sending a confirmation message with interview time and location details, tips to prepare for the interview and day-of guidance on where to park or how to dress. Cultivate highly engaged candidates by texting from introduction through offer.
