When a candidate receives an InMail message, they can respond by selecting from three different options based on whether they are interested; maybe interested, but not at this time; or not interested. It is important to understand what InMail looks like from the perspective of a candidate so that you can create the most effective InMail messages.
- [Instructor] In this video I want to take a look at what a candidate sees when I send them an InMail message through Recruiter. Currently I'm logged in as Maggie Rickland who's one of the people I contacted through an InMail from my Recruiter account. Up at the top there's a notification for a new message. Click on that, it opens up this message. Now at the bottom of this message there are three very important buttons that I can click on. I can click on the first button that says, Interested. And this means I'm interested in talking to this recruiter about whatever opportunities that they have.
So if interested, I could go ahead and click on this and then write in my response. If I hit the button that says, Maybe later, that means that I'm not interested in talking now, but I might be interested at a later date. And then, of course, not interested means that I'm just not interested in the position at all. Typically the people you contact with using an InMail in Recruiter will respond with one of these three options. However, they might not respond at all. If they don't respond, you will not get your InMail credit back.
So hopefully they'll choose one of these options. Just for this example, I'm going to go ahead and choose the Maybe later option. And then down here, it generates a default message. Now if I want to use this one, I could or I could go ahead and generate my own authentic message. For this example, I'm just going to use the default message and I'll click Send. And now that candidate has replied, so I will get my InMail credit back which I can use towards contacting other candidates in the future. And that's a quick look at receiving a Recruiter message from the perspective of a candidate.
