How to set up your own Regret Texts…
Job Mail has made it quick and easy for you to respond to applicants that are not right for the job with our Regret texts feature.
You can prepare and set up different “regret” texts in advance to send to different types of applicants. See below a few handy examples…
To use this tool, select the type of regret text that you’ve already compiled and set up at the bottom of each “Applicant Subject” on every job application you receive.
Hope this is useful!
