Uploading and Importing Candidates

The right candidate can reach you in a variety of ways. Some may proactively apply through a job board or your career page, while others may come through an email or elsewhere online.

Import Via Email

Looking to bring in some candidates stored on your drive or inbox using an email address? Each job in JazzHR has an individual email address that allows you to forward those candidates into the system.

You can import up to 10 candidates at a time by emailing candidates as attachments to the email address associated with that job.

To import candidates into any job in JazzHR:

  1. Click the actions dropdown next to Edit Job.
  2. Click Import Candidates.
  3. A window will generate with the unique email for the job.
  4. Click Start an Import Email to open your mail client and begin attaching candidates OR copy this email address to paste into your email client directly (note our file restrictions).
