Candidates can expect the following behavior:

  • An Opt-In consent to receive text messages via the Candidate Experience
  • An additional Opt-In text message confirmation on their device
  • Text communications from the HMC user or HMC templates regarding their application
  • The option to Opt-Out of receiving text messages by replying to a text with the key word “STOP”
