Ways in which employment or recruitment agencies can use bulk SMS are numerous. Already, we’ve seen how they can use this for vacancy notifications and how it can be used to schedule aptitude tests for Job applicants that fit a particular job description.
After the aptitude test has been conducted, and the results of the test forwarded to those concerned, which can also be done through SMS, the next thing that follows is the interview session. In some cases, interviews are the only assessment given to the applicants, without aptitude tests. While aptitude tests assess the overall intellectual capacity of the job applicant, an interview is more of a conversation between a representative of the firm and the job applicant, where the firm gets to hear firsthand what the person has to offer if employed.
The same way bulk SMS has been used for vacancy awareness, for scheduling aptitude test, so also employment agencies in collaboration with the firm can use bulk SMS to place interview appointments.
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.
