Text recruiting (also known as SMS recruiting) is using text messaging to engage with talent, candidates, and new hires. Recruiters texting candidates often successfully speed up the hiring process.

A recruitment text refers to a message sent between a hiring party (e.g., a recruiter or HR professional) and a candidate. It can be an informational text, a reminder for an interview or paperwork, or a reply to a question.

Text recruiting software empowers you to send, receive, and manage messages with thousands of candidates on their preferred channels. It offers tools like mass texts and SMS automations to expedite the hiring process, plus custom field integration and list segmentation for personalized messages.

Staffing agencies often adopt recruiting texting services to manage hiring on a large scale. But any business’s HR team can use them to streamline their processes.

Interest your talent pool with newsletters and open job notifications. Share SMS application links and start scheduling interviews after screening. Answer post-interview questions and send decision updates. Manage initial onboarding by sending paperwork reminders and other new-hire materials through recruiting text messages.

Yes, you may text candidates. (In fact, some experts argue that text recruiting is the future of hiring.) First, they must opt in by texting your team a written keyword or checking a box on an online form. Before they opt in, you must let them know what kinds of messages you plan to send, how often, and how they can opt in. If you don’t stipulate the details of your SMS service, you will violate the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and may be subject to fines. Please note that these are general approaches; consult your legal counsel about matters of compliance.
