Well, spent a good part of the day getting a demo of Virtual Edge, a top rated ATS. Coming soon to a theater near you…they’re going to be offering SMS text notifications from their ATS. Very cool.
I have a client that hires mostly 16-25 year olds into their retail sales positions. And I’ll tell you, SMS/texting is going to be great for them. Email is sooooo 2006.
Imagine auto texting an acknowledgment of an application submitted online, notifying someone of a new job opening that fits their job-agent criteria, confirming interviews, or even sending referral solicitations directly to kids’ (er, young people’s) cell phones.
I don’t know of other ATS vendors that offer this. But am glad to see it’s coming. Soon.
p.s. I don’t take any sales commissions or kickbacks from Virtual Edge or any ATS vendors.
