Upload resume

Normally, candidates provide their resumes when they apply to one of your jobs. You can also manually upload a resume to add a new candidate on the People page.

SmartRecruiters supports resumes in DOC, DOCX, RTF, ODT, TXT, and PDF file formats.

Add to talent pool

To upload a resume and add a candidate into a talent pool, but not to a specific job:

  1. Click People at the top of SmartRecruiters.
  2. Click Add Candidate above the list of all candidates for all jobs.
  3. Click Upload a Resume and select the resume from your desktop to upload it:

SmartRecruiters will automatically parse the candidate's resume, and add the candidate as a Lead on the General Application, with a source of Manual Upload.

Add to specific job

To upload a resume and add a candidate to a specific job:

  1. Click on the job in the Jobs list.
  2. Click the People tab.
  3. Click Add Candidate above the list of all candidates for that job.
  4. Click Upload a Resume and select the resume from your desktop to upload it:

SmartRecruiters will automatically parse the candidate's resume, and add the candidate as Lead on the job, with a source of Manual Upload.

Fill manually

In either case,  you can also click Fill Manually and enter the candidate's details by hand. This method has a few advantages:

  • You can add a photo for the candidate.
  • You can immediately assign them a specific source.
