Text Messaging

The team here at DISCOVER STAFFING recently read an article about text messaging in the recruiting industry. It suggested that staffing companies use texting in conjunction with phone messages and emails to determine availability for assignments. We are considering doing this moving forward. Our intention would be to only text as a last resort. If we are able to contact you by phone or email we would not text, but if the message is urgent (for instance, an assignment that begins the same day) and were unable to reach you otherwise we may send a text message. We also understand that some people have limited text plans and may chose to use it for only friends and family.

Please respond to this post, on Facebook or on the poll provided with your ideas on this matter. Would you be all right with DISCOVER STAFFING texting you occasionally to pass on an urgent message? Thank you for your consideration.
