Adding and Sourcing Candidates

You can add candidates to Breezy in several ways. Find out how to add candidates’ info and upload resumes.

Candidates who apply from your career portal or job board postings are added to Breezy automatically. But if you’re looking for ways to add candidates proactively, we’ve got you covered.

You can add candidates in several ways, including:

  • Resume import
  • Manual entry
  • Email submission

You can import or enter a candidate anywhere you see the + Add Candidate button, including the Candidates or Pipeline view of a position or pool.

How to add a candidate by importing a resume

  1. Click Positions/Pools in the left sidebar.
  2. Open the correct position.
  3. Click + Add Candidates in the top-right corner.
  4. Click Import by Resume.
  5. Select the resume file you’d like to include and click Open.
  6. Select the stage to add the candidate to.
  7. Choose whether to apply any stage actions associated with the stage you selected.
  8. Click +Add Candidate.

Breezy’s resume importer parses the information in the file you upload to create a candidate record and adds information to as many fields as it can recognize.

To identify and organize relevant data, the files you upload must be text-based documents, such as DOCX, TXT, RTF, ODT, or PDF, rather than scanned documents saved as images or PDFs.

How to add a candidate manually

  1. Click Positions/Pools in the left sidebar.
  2. Open the correct position.
  3. Click + Add Candidates in the top-right corner.
  4. Enter the candidate’s name and other details.
  5. Click Continue.
  6. Select the stage to add the candidate to.
  7. Choose whether to apply any stage actions associated with the stage you selected.
  8. Click +Add Candidate.

Tip: Uploads are better in bulk!

How to add candidates by email

With the External Recruiter feature, you can add candidates by sending resumes as attachments to a custom Breezy email address.

To create an external recruiter email address and submit resumes:

  1. Click Positions/Pools in the left sidebar.
  2. Open the correct position.
  3. Click the gear icon ⚙️ in the top-right corner to open Position Settings.
  4. Click Hiring Team in the left sidebar.
  5. Scroll to External Recruiters.
  6. Enter your name and email address and click + Add Recruiter.
  7. Copy the custom email address that is generated.
  8. Send an email to the custom email address, with the resume file(s) attached.

Each attached resume file will be parsed to create a new candidate profile, the same way they’re parsed when you import a resume manually.
