Hate Screening Job Candidates by Phone? There's Another Way--and It's So Millennial

No matter which side of the interview process you're on, we can agree on this: the traditional process can be a drawn-out, time-consuming pain.

It all starts with the dreaded phone screen. It's a mad dash to cram in as much as possible in those precious 30 minutes. The conversation feels forced. And you both very well know it could go nowhere.

It's a lot of time invested for little payoff -- especially if you're interviewing for several jobs or screening many candidates at once.

That's why one startup has an unusual hiring solution to revamp the interview process. Their platform lets recruiters text candidates instead of calling them.

You're used to texting friends and family throughout day. Could this work for hiring managers and candidates, too? Canvas, a company that launched in June 2017, created a text-message based interview platform.

Canvas says texting is more effective than phone screening because recruiters can talk to many candidates at once. All the text threads are stored, making the transcripts easy to reference later. It recommends questions to hiring managers mid-conversation and even allows them to send candidates in-text links to company info such as benefits information. "You can engage 10x the candidates per day," the Canvas website boasts.
