iRecruit TXT is available to all iRecruit customers who would like to integrate texting into their recruiting tools. iRecruit TXT enables users to initiate private  conversations with candidates directly from the applicant profile page. iRecruit users can have a faster time to fill by using texting.

Keep in touch with candidates who prefer texting over email or phone calls with iRecruit TXT. Simply request permission to send texts during their application. So whether the candidate is unable take your phone call, or prefers texting over email or phone, you can reach them quickly. Candidates are also more likely to be able to discretely reply to texts quickly. Here are four things you need to know before you use iRecruit TXT:

  1. It’s Permission Based. In order to be in compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act you need to collect permission to text with anyone. Candidates can opt-in to receiving texts from you via the application page.

  2. Your work or personal cell phone number remains private. Each text conversation you start with candidates is done with a unique local number. Your actual phone number is not exposed to the applicant.
  3. Replies are faster. The average open rate of text messages is 98% versus the open rate for emails at 20-30%, using iRecruit TXT can help you increase your time to fill and time to find easily.
  4. Save Templates. Save texting templates for frequently sent messages to use with iRecruit TXT, just like you can do with email.
