4—Import candidates via your Job’s email address

When you create a Job in Recruitee, you’ve also got a mailbox for that Job. If candidates and/or your colleagues send a CV to the Job’s mailbox, Recruitee will automatically parse it into a candidate profile and put it in the Job’s hiring pipeline.

You can see a Job’s email address by clicking the “Add candidates” button on the top right corner.
