It’s no secret that timely and efficient communication is the key to successful hiring. In today's market where the best candidates get hired quickly — every second counts. And with an average industry email open rate of 21%, hiring teams have to experiment with new ways of candidate engagement.
To simplify communication with your job applicants, we’ve introduced Conversations — a direct messenger between your company and WorksHub platform users.

You can learn more about using our new Conversations feature below.
Companies can only message candidates who applied to their jobs. Once you click on the
Get in touch button, the applicant’s status changes from
Interviewing and you can start messaging them. Each conversation is related to a particular application, so you may have several chats with the same candidate.
You can access any candidate information straight in the chat: CV, cover letter and social profiles. Once you’ve made a decision, change the application status with the chat menu — all changes will be reflected in your application funnel immediately.
Timely communication with the candidates is crucial. To avoid delays, both candidates and companies get email reminders about unread messages — in addition to the website notifications 💬.
No longer want to be engaged with a candidate? Click on
Leave conversation and you’ll stop getting new messages, while the chat history will stay visible. The candidate will be notified that you've left the chat.
Happy chatting and don’t forget to send us your feedback here!
