News, tips & advice from FastSMS

Recruitment and employment agencies can derive great benefits from use of SMS messaging in most aspects of their business.

Candidates can be informed of vacancies they might be interested in, directly to their phones. Appointment dates can be arranged with total privacy. Employers can receive brief candidate details or appointment details even when out of the office. Clarification can be sought by both candidates and employers.

Job details can be accessed by texting in a job code to Fastsms, triggering a response immediately to the enquirer’s phone. Contract workers can text in their availability or receive details of their assignments. All of this saves time and money, increases efficiency and, vitally, places more candidates.
