Bullhorn Engage Roundtable: 10 Tactics, Tools, and Techniques Your Competitors Use to Source Candidates Faster Than You


We hope you’ll join us for our roundtable where we’ll be laying down the tactics, tools, and techniques that give staffing firms a competitive advantage.

We’ll share data-backed insights into the software, strategy, and best practices that the most successful staffing firms use to scale faster.

#4. Communicate the way candidates want with SMS

Did you know that 9 out 10 people expect businesses to be able to communicate through text? Candidates are busy — they want you to reach out to them the way they communicate with their family and friends.

We’ll discuss harnessing the power of text to break through the noise.

#5. Standardize your messaging with templated texts and emails

Tap text messaging templates to boost response rates and standardize your candidate outreach.

We’ll give examples of some data-informed templates that will save your recruiters time, boost your response rates, and help you implement best communication practices across your organization.

#6. Activate passive candidates with business texting

Use SMS re-engagement messages to get non-responsive talent to talk with your recruiters.

We’ll discuss the tactics and messaging that actually get the attention of passive candidates.

#7. Get more referrals with Staffing Referrals and TextUs

Mobilize your existing candidate network with Staffing Referrals, a white label referral management software.

We’ll discuss how to standardize and scale your referral program to see rapid ROI.

#8. Train your recruiters on the daily texting routine

Implement text messaging best practice every day to maximize your recruiters’ efficiency and close candidate faster.

We’ll give you concrete examples you can teach your team as soon as you get back from the conference, such as starting every day with a Group Broadcast to 100 targeted high-potential candidates.

#9. Send multimedia messages to increase engagement

Use TextUs to send MMS messages and increase your response rate.

We’ll go over the do’s and don’ts of great MMS outreach.

#10. Explore your team’s text messaging analytics

Learn from your most-effective recruiters by sharing the messages that work the best across your organization.

We’ll discuss how to use text messaging analytics to improve all of your recruiters’ communication tactics.
