⚙ How to configure it?
Step 1: Log in to your ZipRecruiter account. (Employer log in).
The user who logs into the account needs to have the capability to add new users. Remember, if you do not have a ZipRecruiter account, you will need to register your account with them directly. You will NOT be able to post in ZipRecruiter from Talkpush directly.
Step 2: Create a new user from your ZipRecruiter account. Go to My Account => Settings => Users.
Remember, you'll have to create a new account for each new campaign.
Step 3: In the upper right corner of your screen, you will see the “+ Add New User” button. Click on it.
Step 4: Fill out the “Add User” form accordingly. If your subscription plan does not include more than one user seat, you will need to purchase another user seat before adding a new user.
We recommend using a name related to the job title or the job location if your company has multiple sites. Keep in mind that you will need to create a New User for each campaign.

What happens next?
Talkpush allows you to engage with candidates coming from ZipRecruiter as soon as they apply using SMS. Our resume parsing engine captures the candidate’s phone number and will enable you to immediately send the candidate an SMS invitation to the next step of the recruitment process.
SMS read and response rates are 5 to 10x more effective than email in this environment, giving you a significant edge on the competition. In addition, Talkpush offers you a new feature that can help you control your SMS consumption monthly or annually, and manage your SMS usage to help you figure out if your current SMS package requires modifications.
You have a few possible next steps you can configure in the recruitment process to make the journey of the candidate an even better experience. For example, with Talkpush you can sync your calendar so the candidates who completed the first step of the process and need to be interviewed can choose the date and time where you are available according to your calendar. Saving you and the candidate a lot of time because you won't have to go through all this process and manually remind each of your candidates of their interview.
