Executive Recruiters -  The Ankenbrandt Group, Newport Beach, CATexting a Job Offer

Since my blog post in 2012 about not texting offers – it’s happened a lot – texting an offer. And it works.

To make a text offer go smoothly the key is to make sure as a candidate, that you’ve had a detailed communication with your recruiter/HR representative/potential boss about salary, benefits, vacation, bonus, etc.

Seems obvious, but in this age of minimal phone calls and even shorter texts – good, solid communication is ideal. Have that detailed talk sooner rather than later.
