TextApply helps you create an engaging application experience that candidates can use on the go from their mobile phone. Leading organizations are using TextApply today to increase applicants, find new ways to advertise job openings, and hire faster. Read on for 4 examples of how top brands like Chipotle, Sodexo, Domino’s, and ThredUp are using TextApply. 

What is TextApply?  

TextApply helps you attract talent from anywhere by letting people text-to-apply to your job openings. When you purchase TextApply you receive a 5 digit short phone number and a keyword. 

Next, you set up a sequence of messages through TextApply. When a candidate texts “Recruit” to your short number your message sequence starts. You can send any message you want, but we’ve found that screening candidates, redirecting them to a mobile career page, or telling them that you’ll be in touch soon works best.
