As high-touch recruiters we find ourselves typing out similar messages to candidates time and time again. We need to be able to quickly keep in touch with our candidates without sacrificing personalization. Text and Email Templates are perfect for creating quick responses, intro, or follow-up messages that you find yourself using on a consistent basis. You can even use Merge Tags to auto-populate user or contact information.
