What is Text-to-Apply?

Text-to-apply is text recruiting software that makes connecting with qualified applicants easier and increases applications from local jobseekers.

With Text-to-Apply, jobseekers text a keyword and phone number that's unique to your business, and receive a link to your job posts.

Applications are simple and mobile-optimized, making it easy for jobseekers to apply from their phone. Candidates that start an application but don't finish receive automated reminders via text, boosting the application completion rate.

All applications go straight to HigherMe's Applicant tracking system for simple and efficient screening.
