Recruiting Text Message Templates

Send a brief and straightforward message to keep candidates up to speed while you’re on-the-go, during commute or in-between meetings.

Ask permission from the candidates before sending a text. Particularly, if your candidates are EU citizens, their personal data is protected by the new data protection law (GDPR). 

Remember texts to candidates should still be professional. Double-check your language for clarity, tone and accuracy.
