What are the rules for texting candidates in 2022?

We’re all guilty of having our mobile devices glued to our faces and candidates are no different. For many, text is the best form of communication. Reports from recent surveys show that for job seekers between 18 and 30 years of age, almost 90% preferred using text messages during the hiring process.

In the ever-evolving world of talent, attracting and engaging candidates in the hiring process is key. But before you start firing up your thumbs, keep in mind that COVID has had a major impact on the job market, and this does not exclude recruiter-candidate communication.

There are a few new rules of engagement.

Sophie Okonkwo, Global Talent Acquisition- Engineering EMEA at Microsoft, will join us to offer guidance on how to provide informative communication to your candidates with text messaging during Covid – i.e., you have to make it count…without sounding like a creep.
