This option is available only if you have the resume parsing feature activated. You may also need to contact your server administrator or IT department to set up an email account to which you like to receive resumes. We advise you to create a new email address for each job requirement to avoid any mixups and for security reasons.

This feature allows importing jobs from CSV (Microsoft Excel CSV File). You can import several jobs at a time. Please note that this feature does not work with Excel directly, you need to save an Excel file as a CSV (comma separated values).
How to save an Excel file as a CSV
- Open your Excel file.
- Go to Home and select “Save as.”
- From “Save as type” select CSV (Comma delimited).
Once you have your CSV file ready you can select “Import Jobs.”
Import Job Step 1
Select the status of the job being imported.
The industry for the job.
Please select a CSV file from your computer to upload and import.
The encoding of your CSV file. You may not need to change this, if you are not sure.
The date format of all the dates in your CSV file, please note that all dates in CSV file e.g. start date and end date, should be of the same format.
Select recruiter(s) for the jobs.
If you have imported jobs before using this interface and if you have saved the last import, you can directly select the last import from the list and quickly import the same format.
Import Jobs (Step 2)
On this screen, you can “map” the data in your CSV with the database of the system. For example, in your CSV file you may have a Job Heading and in this system we call it “Job Title”; so you can tell the system that in my file Job title is “Job heading”. You can do this by dragging a field from column A (fields in your CSV) file and dropping it over the corresponding field in column B (Database fields). You must map all the fields marked as * in column B to import data.
Please make sure that you review everything before you click on “Import Data” button, as it is irreversible.
