The social recruiting and marketing platform LinkedIn recently announced a new voice messaging feature. It allows users to record and send brief audio clips instead of typing out messages. This feature can help reduce the time it takes to reach out to potential recruits and adds a personal touch from your business. That personal experience could make the difference for talented applicants who are used to getting a canned response.

Maximizing This Feature

Using this feature can combat the perception that your company doesn’t care about applicants on a personal level. With this in mind, consider using voice replies to show applicants you care. If a person thinks you don’t care about their application, why should they want to work for you?
