Industry leader in the best-of-breed recruiting software Jobvite has recently announced Jobvite Text, the new tool of its enterprise-level recruiting platform. Powered by Canvas, this technology gives its users a fresh advantage in the recruiting realm by giving recruiters the ability to start conversations with potential hires from the palm of their hand: on their mobile device.
The recruiting landscape is rapidly shifting and requires a modern, multi-channel approach to candidate engagement in order to stay top of mind. While the average open rate for email remains strong at more than 20 percent, mobile text commands a near-perfect 98 percent read rate. The speed at which the world moves today requires innovative tools that can keep pace with jobseekers’ growing expectations for instant, personalized interactions. Jobvite Text combines robust, industry-leading recruiting software with the best-in-class text-interviewing and engagement platform from Canvas, so recruiters can effortlessly engage candidates in a customized way through their preferred form of instant communication: mobile text.
“When it comes to fueling a company’s growth, talent is the single most important factor, providing the ultimate competitive advantage,” said Scott Day, senior vice president of people and culture at OpenTable. “To stay ahead of the competition, the recruiting process has to be quick, easy and painless for the candidate. I’m thrilled that our recruiters will be leveraging a highly integrated product from two of the leaders in the recruiting space to accelerate the process from screening to interviewing to hiring.”
Start Conversations with One or Multiple Candidates, All at Once and in Real-Time: Studies show that 95 percent of texts will be read within three minutes of being sent, with an average response time of just 90 seconds. With Jobvite’s new texting solution, recruiters can leverage the power of text to instantly engage both active and passive candidates on an individualized basis, or broadcast messages to entire groups of jobseekers. Hiring teams can even schedule texts in a sequence as part of their targeted recruiting campaigns to reach candidates where they’re most likely to respond.
Track and Report Engagement Metrics on a Deeper Level: Forward-thinking recruiters are already utilizing text messaging to reach the next generation of talent but have no formalized method to analyze or track their mobile recruiting efforts. Jobvite’s latest update places the power back in the hands of hiring teams: offering detailed analytics and actionable insights to help recruiters deploy strategic campaigns faster and more securely, and ultimately hit their hiring goals.
Reduce Time-to-Fill with an AI-Powered Chatbot: Tasked with managing a massive hiring funnel, today’s recruiters need efficient ways to sift through their talent pipeline. The Jobvite Text chatbot, powered by artificial intelligence, automates time-consuming candidate outreach, improving the jobseeker experience and allowing hiring teams to get in front of the best talent before the competition.
“This latest update to the Jobvite platform offers recruiters a must-have solution to engage candidates and immediately start a conversation, on their terms, within seconds,” said Jobvite Chief Product Officer, Robert Tsao. “With this new functionality, hiring teams can provide jobseekers with instant access to resources, eliminate time spent waiting for responses, and easily stay in touch over time in order to build lasting, authentic relationships.”
