In today’s competitive talent marketplace, recruiters must contact candidates quickly, find a way to get a response, qualify applicants, and fill positions faster.

With email and voicemail responses dwindling due to an overload of messages, recruiters need a better way to connect with candidates. Text messaging is the solution. With 6x the response rates of email and over 10x the response rates of voicemail, texting will bring more candidates into your pipeline, faster than ever.

At the moment, four European countries are using SMS-Magic functionalities to send SMS to candidates. SMS-Magic support is great, the product is easy to use and well integrated with our solution 🙂
