Introducing Candidate Texting: Instantly Connect with Jobseekers

Say goodbye to the black hole of email inboxes. With Wizehire, you can instantly engage with top talent using the new Candidate Texting feature.

A candidate-driven market requires an innovative recruiting strategy. While email remains a staple, texting is a faster and more effective way to connect with top candidates. 

That’s why we are thrilled to launch Candidate Texting today. You can now leverage texting to easily reach applicants, answer their questions in real time, and keep them engaged throughout your process.

Wizehire’s Award Winning Hiring Platform

Expand and accelerate your reach. Go from 0 to 100+ job boards in 1 click with support, tools, and integrations to guide you.

Why texting? Open rates that outshine your inbox

Consider your communication habits. We all have our phones with us (all the time), and we quickly respond to texts in a way we rarely do for other channels.

Studies show over 97% of texts are opened versus just 20% of emails. Texting candidates gets your message seen fast, putting you ahead of your competition, who might be relying solely on email outreach.

Real-time communication for busy jobseekers

Active job seekers are often already working full-time while applying for a job and going through the recruiting process.

Emails are easily lost in the shuffle. Text messages cut through the noise and ensure your message is seen in real time. This immediacy allows for quicker responses and a positive candidate experience.   

  • 45% of job seekers search for jobs daily on their phones.
  • Providing a positive candidate experience can lead to a lower cost-per-hire by up to 40%.
  • 90% of working professionals consider cell phones essential for job searches.

Texting for a competitive edge

Texting is about more than just getting your message seen. Our early customers have successfully scheduled 26% more interviews and dramatically reduced interview no-show rates by up to 71%, especially in the hospitality industry. You can now:

  • Send time-sensitive text reminders to applicants in bulk. 
  • Text application status updates to your top candidates.
  • Schedule, confirm, and adjust interview dates on the go.

Stop the frustration and start building candidate relationships

At Wizehire, we understand the challenges of recruiting. Candidate ghosting and overflowing inboxes create a constant struggle to connect with top talent. 

Now, you can focus on building solid relationships with candidates throughout the entire hiring process. Let Wizehire empower you to find the perfect fit and build a team of the top talent you need to keep your business growing. 

Experience the difference Candidate Texting can make in your hiring process.
