SMS employment tools make it easy to communicate with job candidates.

Encourage real-time communication

Job seekers are always on the phone, looking for the next opportunity. SMS provides a simple and effective means of communication with them.

Simplify the recruitment process

SMS temp agencies can configure automated texts to filter out unqualified applicants and reduce the number of unknown variables for hiring companies.

Automate job application tasks

SMS recruitment tools also allow you to instantly send important documents (e.g. employment history or criminal records) as text attachments.

Cost & time effective staffing tool

Instead of calling job candidates one by one, you can reach out to them via text message. SMS recruitment saves you time, energy, and resources.

Frequently Asked Questions

Not sure how to get started with recruitment text message marketing? We answer your most frequently asked questions:

TextMagic offers several useful calendar integrations that allow you to automatically manage job interview no-shows and automatically delete events from your calendar. The rules can be configured with any calendar. However, we’ll demonstrate how straightforward the TextMagic – Google Calendar integration is.

Step #1: Send SMS reminders before a Google Calendar Event begins.

  • Navigate to the Google Calendar Zapier Integration page. Select the pre-defined integration for appointment no-shows.
  • Sign up for a Zapier account, or log in to your existing account. Complete the rule and define your automated message for appointment reminders. The appointment reminder should encourage attendees to cancel by replying to the text with “CANCEL MY APPOINTMENT”. This will help you automate step #2.

Step #2: Automatically delete the appointment from the calendar.

  • Now you will want to configure a new Zapier integration with Google Calendar.
  • The trigger for this zap will be a NEW INCOMING MESSAGE. Add a filter to the zap, as follows: Only continue if the text contains “CANCEL MY APPOINTMENT”.
  • Define the Google Calendar action as “Delete event from calendar”. Voila!

The most effective way of promoting job opportunities is by segmenting your list into talent pools, experience levels, salary expectations, locations, etc. You can assign contacts to different lists manually from your TextMagic dashboard. You can also automate list management through Zapier integrations or TextMagic automation rules.

Whenever you send a new job opportunity via SMS, simply select a relevant list for the ‘To’ field. This strategy helps you reduce the costs of SMS staffing and improve your success rate.
