When should I send messages to candidates?

Most employers engage applicants throughout the entire recruiting lifecycle to manage logistics, give status updates, and move through the offer process.

Here are a few times where it may be appropriate to send a message:

  • Ask a question about their resume.
  • Share follow-up information about the job and your company.
  • Schedule a time for an interview or phone screen.
  • Connect them with the hiring manager.
  • Update them on the status of their application.

Check out this quick guide to help you determine which messages to send at each stage of the recruiting process.
