Why the WhatsApp Business Solution is a great addition to HR and Recruitment Software

WhatsApp is one of the biggest messaging solutions in the world. Globally, 2 billion people use WhatsApp and 100 billion WhatsApp messages are sent per day. Therefore, WhatsApp is a vital channel for businesses to communicate with their audiences. In the recruitment market, WhatsApp has become even more common to invite potential job seekers to contact the recruiters or the other way around.

  • Candidates apply via WhatsApp

When a vacancy has been published – whether it’s online or via ‘scan the QR code to open the vacancy’ on a poster – contacting the recruiter should be easy, with a low threshold, and quick responses to get the conversation going as soon as the job seeker shows interest. And, when a conversation has started, it’s easy to do a quick scan about the person through their WhatsApp profile, like name, description, and picture.

  • Two-way communication

The job seeker can contact the recruiter about the vacancies via WhatsApp, but it’s also a great opportunity for the recruiter to get to know the person on the other side of the line by asking questions about their previous work experiences and preferences.

Besides that, WhatsApp allows you to also share PDFs for CV’s and videos which creates a richer conversation.

  • Data

What’s been said on WhatsApp, stays on WhatsApp. WhatsApp backs up contacts and chat histories so there should be no fear of losing the information.

  • Automatic replies via chatbots
