Hiring Via Text?

How can a small or medium sized business compete for talent in today’s technology driven culture and stand out as a progressive, forward thinking employer? Texting applicants is a clever method on the rise. Not only can you improve communication responsiveness among applicants who may not be readily assessible to email, but you’ll stand out among competitors.

Texting has become a standard method of communication: your doctor or dentist will text you a reminder of your appointment and utility companies can text you regarding your bill. Texting capabilities let you know your prescription is ready, package delivery status, or weather updates.

Using a simple text message as a recruiting tactic is an easy, creative, and cost-effective method to connect and remain connected with viable candidates. Texting offers candidates the opportunity to connect with you much faster rather than the lag time with email or telephone calls.


Tips for success:

  • Keep your initial message simple and brief 
  • Include the name of your company 
  • Title of position 
  • Include your name or title 
  • Ask the applicant when a good time is to connect to further discuss (this prompts a response from the applicant and will allow you to easily schedule a preliminary phone interview)
