It has become pretty apparent that using texting as the main form of communication between employers and applicants is the optimal, but not everyone on the hiring side of the spectrum has taken initiative to utilize texting for their hiring process. So I wanted to break down the advantages and reasons of advancing from email to text during recruitment.
We have really come a long way. Evolving from Morse code to payphones to landlines, to now having personal mobile devices, all for improving communication. Throughout the development of technology, one constant trend is the fact that everyone has become more and more reliant on their cellphones. This might have something to do with all the new features and capabilities equipped with phones today, or it could be because our cellphones are the gateways to the rest of the world. Regardless of the journey, one undeniable fact is that since the phone and internet became a single device… cellphones can now be considered an item of clothing, because people do not leave their homes without it.
Therefore, it is evident that using texting to recruit outweighs traditional communications methods.
