Text messaging is a vital recruiting channel in a competitive job market. Some employers are even discovering that text recruiting is the best channel regardless of market conditions. And though the extent to which texting is used in the hiring process will vary by organization, employers that fail to develop a strategy for text recruiting may miss out on opportunities to better engage and hire top talent.
ExactHire makes it easy to craft personal messages without going back into an applicant’s file to search for information. Use personalization tags to easily insert applicant-specific data into your messages.
While personalization is important, it shouldn’t come at the cost of efficiency. Create and save message templates to support your most common conversations.
Candidate conversations often take place across multiple channels. ExactHire organizes email and text messages into one chronological feed that makes it easy to review your complete communication history.
Faster Response Time
The hiring process really speeds up when HR can get quick responses from applicants. On average, mobile phone users respond to text messages within 90 seconds–compared to email at 90 minutes.
