How Employment Agencies Can Use Bulk SMS for Vacancy Notifications

  23 September 2015

Simply put, what employment agencies or recruitment agencies does is to match job seekers that are qualified for a particular role with the employers. With the sky rocketing increased rate of unemployment in Nigeria today, it is not surprising to see lots of employment agencies evolving on a regular basis.

 

HOW DO EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES OPERATE?

 

Basically, the Human Resource department of an organization or firm contacts the recruitment agencies for assistance in getting employees to fill in particular vacant positions in the establishment. It is not uncommon to see many firms making use of recruitment agencies to get fitting candidates for their vacant jobs, so that they can better focus on other things. The persons needed might be to take on a permanent role or a temporary one. All these information will also be passed on to the recruitment agency.

 

The employment agency looks for the qualified person for the vacant position based on his/her qualifications, and connect this with the demanding firm, which will in turn assess the candidate for fitness.

 

HOW RECRUITMENT AGENCIES CAN USE BULK SMS FOR VACANCY AWARENESS

If you are an unemployed or underemployed graduate looking for a job, and wants to go through a recruitment agency, the first thing you will do is to register with such agency. You provide your details, your qualifications and previous work experience to the appropriate agency. In some cases, these credentials are submitted to the agency at an office used by her, but in most cases, they are there online, and every interaction with them happens on the internet.

 

Once there is a vacant position that matches the field of an applicant, recruitment agencies can use bulk SMS to inform such ones of the available vacancies. Getting the phone numbers of such persons can be very easy. You can get these from the CV they submitted, or for agencies that requires job seekers to register an account with them on their website, phone numbers of those signing up can be gotten as one of the required details for registration.

 

WHY USE BULK SMS FOR INTIMATING JOB SEEKERS OF OPPORTUNITIES?

Many recruitment agencies that want to go official in the real meaning of the term might be thinking using phone calls and the email to communicate employment opportunities with job seekers. While this might be considered more official, bulk SMS holds more advantages over them which make it a fitting tool for this purpose. One guarantee you have while using SMS is that the persons you send to will get and read your text, most times immediately. Also when compared to other means of communicating this, it is relatively cheaper and easy to use. It also allows for a two way communication system, where the recipients can send a response back to you, indicating their interest or lack of it in the job opportunity.
