Typically candidates will apply to your jobs through your jobs portal, however there may be occasions when you need to manually add a candidate to a job, for example due to a technical issue they are experiencing, a disability or accessibility issues.

Alternatively, you may have found a candidate you think may be a great fit for the role and want to reach out to them and track them like any other candidate through the application process before they’ve committed to formally applying.

It's important to ensure you have consent from the candidate to add them to your database.

First, browse to the navigation on the left hand side of your screen and select 'Manage Jobs' under the 'Jobs' section.

Locate the job you wish to add the candidate to and click on the job title to open it.

Next, click the '+ Add Candidate' button:

Fill in the candidate's information in the fields provided. The Personal Summary can be taken from the candidates covering letter or from their resume, if provided.

Upload their Resume/CV. This must be in either the format of .pdf or .docx. 

Once ready click the 'Submit Application' button. Note that you cannot edit this information once it's been submitted.

You will then be taken to the candidates new profile:

It will show in the lower left that the source is manually submitted by you. 

You will also notice that an auto-generated summary has been created on the left in the section 'Pinpoint Summary'. Our software will programmatically read the candidates CV when it is uploaded and create a short, succinct summary of their experience and qualifications. Note that this is purely factual based and there are no opinions included.
