September 4th, 2019 Posted by Recruiting Tips, Text Messaging


The accessibility of texting has grown tremendously in the past decade, so much that it has become a staple of all communications today. Although it is widespread, texting comes with its unique set of rules depending on the context, just as face-to-face communication do. This is especially important within a professional setting. In the recruitment process, a message should be tailored to accurately reflect company values. After all, a recruiter is a candidate’s point-of-contact and the company’s representative in the hiring process. Different types of messaging can invoke various interpretations and impressions.
