Jobalign Launches Candidate Messenger

Seattle, WA /PRNewswire/ - Jobalign, the nation's leading Candidate Engagement Platform focusing on hourly recruitment, today announced the release of Jobalign Candidate Messenger, a tool which dramatically improves communication between recruiter and job-seeker. Candidate Messenger is an enterprise-grade texting interface that allows recruiters to communicate directly with candidates from the Jobalign platform. Messages sent through Jobalign Candidate Messenger are delivered directly to a candidate's cell phone via text message.

Jobalign's research has determined that the number one frustration from hourly job seekers is not hearing back from an employer in a timely manner. Using Jobalign Candidate Messenger, recruiters cater to hourly candidates' preferred method of communication and allow for immediate conversation in order to schedule interviews, answer questions and fill roles faster. This increases candidate engagement and reduces post-apply applicant abandonment.

"As an established expert in mobile and text based recruitment within the hourly space, we are excited to hand this additional power over to recruiters," says Douglas Johnson, CEO of Jobalign. "Candidate Messenger is a new game-changing communication tool to more efficiently connect organizations with hourly workers. This solution was developed from real needs voiced by our customers struggling with reaching candidates, as well as the real frustrations that job-seekers experience in communicating with companies. With Jobalign Candidate Messenger, we solve the communication gap, improving efficiency in hiring for companies and satisfaction for job-seekers."

Jobalign Candidate Messenger is fully TCPA and EEOC compliant with all data and text history available for search and audit. It also gives recruiters and management reporting capabilities to determine efficiency of the recruiting process.
