Apply by Text

Text Apply is the fastest way for job seekers to apply. 

What is Text Apply?

Text Apply helps job seekers engage employers and apply for positions, by simply texting a local number, or shortcode, to using sms/ text messaging. Then, depending on the employers solution, the candidate will get an automated welcome response that either engages them in a job application process, or redirects them to the companies career site to apply.

What are the benefits of Text Apply?

Text Apply solutions are revolutionizing recruiting because text messaging has a 95%+ open rate, candidates are already using SMS as their primary communication platform, and companies can leverage recruiting chatbots to engage and pre-screen candidates quickly. Additionally, the quick responses and automation, allow for a better candidate experience while speeding the recruiting process. Companies are seeing increases in  candidate engagements by 9X, while increasing candidate application rates by 562%.

How do companies use Text to Apply? 

Employers are placing their Text to Apply keywords and phone numbers in job ads posted on job boards, as well as in Hiring Now signage, such as banners and window clings. By advertising the Apply by text keyword and text number allows companies to not only capture mobile-driven candidates by increasing the ease-of-use to apply, but also make it easier on applicants, because typing a long url on a mobile phone is frustrating, and most career sites are not mobile optimized.

With high-volume hiring we needed tech to interact with candidates at the top of the funnel by answering FAQs and gathering candidate contact information. Our GoHire text messaging chatbot does this while also providing a nice “human-centric” touchpoint for candidates.
