In this guide, you'll learn how to add a candidate to a job that you have been given
permission to view. 

Before you begin, you'll need to have been set up on your client's Pinpoint system as a recruiter, and have been assigned permissions to view the job that you want to add a candidate too. Your client can do this for you.

Note that the team at Pinpoint is unable to make any changes to client systems.

Add a candidate

First, browse to the navigation on the left-hand side of your screen and select 'Manage Jobs' under the 'Jobs' section, or choose a job from your dashboard.

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 written by either the candidate or you. 

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

Once ready click the 'Submit Application' button.

You will then be taken to the candidates new profile:

The source of the application and a time-stamp will show further down this view..


Q. Can other recruiters see my applicants?
A. No, a recruiter can only see the applicants they have submitted.

Q. If I write a comment about the candidate, who can see this?
A. Only the client can view this. Neither the candidate or other recruiters can see your comments.

Q. I can't see the job that I would like to add the candidate to.
A. Your client is responsible for managing permissions, so please liaise with them directly.

Q. How should I communicate with my client regarding a candidate?
A. You can add comments specific to a candidate in the comments section of Pinpoint, however, you won't be able to view any comments that that client writes. In cases where you need a response from your client, we would recommend that you get in touch with them separately.
