Reach More Candidates Faster with Text Messaging

iRecruit TXT is available now to all customers who would enjoy the convenience of being able to start texting conversations with applicants through iRecruit.

DID YOU KNOW? 98% of text messages are opened and read versus just 20% for emails? AND, according to SMS Comparison‘s 2021 report 95% of text messages are read and responded to within 3 minutes of being received.

How would that affect your time to hire?

You can also reach MORE candidates by using iRecruit TXT’s bulk text capabilities. Just like iRecruit can send bulk emails, or perform bulk updating, you can select multiple applicants to send texts to at once. You can use this fantastic feature to communicate faster, use for job alerts, interview reminders and more.

How iRecruit TXT’s text messaging works:

  1. We’ll start by requesting permission from your applicants so that you will be able to text them:

iRecruit Texting Permissions

2. You can text any applicant that has given you permission. You can start a text conversation from iRecruit on:

    • The applicant’s profile page.
    • The dashboard widget that shows applicants who have given permission.
    • The texting report that shows applicants who have given permission.

3. You can type a message any time, or you can use one of your saved templates (for frequently used messages). (See Eight Text Message Templates to Save for Texting Applicants).

Send-Text-to-Applicants with iRecruit TXT

4. Replies will come to your cell phone in real-time. We’ll use a private local number when we send a text message, so your actual phone number is not exposed to the applicant.

5. A copy of your texting conversation will be saved in iRecruit, on the applicant’s profile page.

6. We’ll archive the conversation if there is no activity after 30 days.

iRecruit TXT is convenient, easy for everyone to use, and super-affordable. Current customers can get a free trial at any time, and new customers, we’ll give you a real-time preview of how it all works when you register for a demo.
