Getting started tutorial

Switch from email to modern chat messaging

Communication goes a long way towards finding the right hire. Conversations need to move beyond email at one point, but hiring managers don't always have time for dozens and dozens of phone calls or video conferences.

That's where chat gets into play by enabling recruiters to evaluate candidates before the next step in the hiring process.

What our customers say

"The fact that we could use TalkJS when we evolved to a React Native app was really helpful. Otherwise, we would have been forced to reinvent the wheel with a different solution, which would have been a large opportunity cost for us."

— Nicholas Smith, the Co-founder & CPO, Surehand

Give candidates an option to chat with recruiters right away

When a recruiter on your team is available, conversations with candidates can take place immediately. Recruiters can get to know the candidates in person before jumping on a video call. Candidates can inquire about the position by simply sending a message on the website chat.

Conversations shift to email when a recruiter or a candidate is not available, giving everyone the ability to send and receive messages even when offline.

Recruiter-candidate chat improves hiring success rate

Give candidates a better hiring experience and provide recruiters with tools that make it possible. With TalkJS, you can create chat questionnaires for pre-screening purposes, use email and push notifications to keep potential hires in the loop, and share any media type inside the chat.

By providing a better hiring experience, your success rate will skyrocket.

Automate the screening process with recruitment chatbots

With TalkJS, developers can easily create and deploy a recruitment chatbot you can customize to fit your hiring process perfectly. For example, a chatbot can help you screen resumes, send assessment invites, schedule interviews, or help you with other tasks during the recruitment process.
