It’s not a fad. Convergys is the latest company to promote their recruitment efforts.
“Divina said Convergys provides individuals an easy option to send their application by simply texting the word “APPLY” to 2600. Convergys responds to the applicants’ text with instructions on how they can start the employment application process. The company even goes a step further by opening a text dialogue with potential employees — sending text messages to applicants, reminding them of their scheduled interview and pre-employment requirements.”
