In this day and age, it seems everyone has a smart phone surgically attached to them. That alone means they likely use text messaging in their daily lives. The fact that text messaging is not only simple to use, but also much more discreet than an actual phone call makes it an ideal tool to add to your recruiting arsenal.
As a recruiter, you already use the phone and email to keep in touch with your candidates and the best candidates are going to already be employed. It can be awkward and sometimes annoying for a candidate to have their cell phone or desk phone ringing at work.
Adding texting to the mix makes it that much easier to discreetly message someone about an opportunity, discuss benefits, compensation, work environment, etc. Texting is also great for reminding someone about an upcoming phone interview, prepping them for the interview and getting feedback about the interview at their convenience.
