There are 6.4 billion people worldwide with access to a smartphone1. Pretty impressive right?
These smartphones are used to send emails, surf the net, and of course receive text messages (SMS). But why should you consider SMS as a recruitment tool?
Take a look at our top 3 reasons why your recruitment strategy should include SMS:
- Getting a response during business hours is more likely with a discrete SMS than by emails or calls.
- Use SMS to give updates and reminders to candidates so they don’t miss interviews.
- Alert candidates to new openings, screen applicants and fill positions faster with SMS.
