The average response time for an email is 90 minutes compared to just 90 seconds for an SMS text message (according to CTIA). Moreover, text messages have an 8X higher response rate than email (according to Cellit). CareerPlug text recruiting gives you the ability to reach more candidates, faster, and keep them engaged throughout the screening and interview process.
We know how frustrating it can be to waste your time with unresponsive applicants. Text messages are far more effective at eliciting a response, even after you have reached out by email or delivered a voice message. This allows you to quickly identify the most interested candidates, which in turn will help reduce your time to hire.
Clients who use our texting feature have a 32% faster time-to-hire rate. Learn more about optimizing your recruitment funnel to hire faster.
With CareerPlug, you can rest assured that all correspondence is stored electronically in a secure and compliant environment. All of your messages will be sent through our text recruiting platform, which allows you to reach out to candidates without them receiving your personal phone number.

Vice President of Sales
Chris accidentally started a 20-year career in franchising when he was 18 years old and took a job painting houses for College Pro Painters. That job turned into the ownership of his first franchise (a house painting franchise). While at Monmouth College in IL, he operated his business, played on the varsity football team, and studied to become a teacher.
The taste of entrepreneurship and desire to coach others led Chris deeper into franchising, working with a few franchise brands helping them grow their businesses. He lived in the Chicagoland area his entire life until recently moving his family to Austin, TX.
In his free time Chris coaches youth sports, especially youth football, and spends as much time as he can with his wife and 2 children.
