I’m sure some of the old school headhunters can remember when they didn’t have access to an email address at work. When recruiting was still pen and paper, with only the phone and a maybe a fax machine keeping you company in your office.
A time before you could Google someone’s email address and find out almost everything out about them.
A time where online presence didn’t exist and you couldn’t screen a candidate by checking their Facebook profile.
The amount of lead generation that you can get from a couple of well-written and well-timed emails has virtually changed the way that we do business today, so the real question is what’s next?
How do you get the attention of that potential candidate if their email starts to get too jammed up?
The majority of recruitment professionals carry their cellphones with them at all times, so is text messaging the next step? Marketing software like Constant Contact and Instant Customer already have SMS Marketing capabilities. So do you start sending targeted text messages?
Do you text a candidate for that first contact?
Where do you think the future of recruiting is headed?
