Recruiting with SMS to land the perfect job

In recruitment, competition is always high whether it’s to bag the job or to send one of your candidates in the right direction to be able to get the job.

As a recruiter, going the extra mile for competitors is just one thing that will attract them to sign up with your agency – this could mean anything from good contact with the candidate when the right job comes in, thorough interview preparation right through to feedback following on from an interview.

With 90% of recruitment agencies claiming that using SMS has helped their business grow, Text Marketer have explored further opportunities SMS can bring  through Software Advice’s latest survey of those on the hunt for a job.

The survey reveals that 43% of job seekers considered a recruiting agency to be more professional when they used SMS in combination with other marketing methods whether to keep in contact or keep candidates up to date.

Almost 50% of respondents who preferred SMS over email and phone calls were aged between 18-24 years with that number declining as age increased which makes SMS marketing perfect for targeting school leavers, and college and university graduates who are looking to get on their career path as soon as possible.

So why use SMS in recruitment?

  • Alerts for new jobs and vacancies
  • Interview scheduling
  • Confirmation of interviews & appointments (21% of candidates prefer notifications by SMS)
  • Alerts for urgent & temporary positions
  • Interview follow-up & feedback
  • Acceptance of job opportunities with 2-way SMS

Of those looking for a job, 80% use mobile applications to search the job market – and with just 17% of recruiters using SMS (Intxt) it seems there is still a huge market yet to be explored with SMS alerts.
