Work Smart with the Resume Inbox

Zoho Recruit | August 20, 2014 | 2 min read

Recruiters face many challenges, but none as painstaking as processing resumes. Their inbox is always cluttered with a pile of resumes from various sources including candidates, employee referrals, job boards, vendors, etc. Now if you’re a recruiter, you’ll know exactly what I mean! The best news for you would be a parsing tool that can process resumes directly from your mailbox onto the database. That’s exactly why Zoho Recruit is excited to introduce – the Resume Inbox.

Cluttered mailboxes, hereafter, become a thing of past. The Resume Inbox can be configured in a few easy steps.  It can parse the email body, or attachments, or both depending on your selection. If you have resumes flowing into multiple email accounts, you need not fret. Simply set up your POP accounts using Zoho Mail, add them to the Resume Inbox and you’re good to go. Once fully configured, you can forget about visiting your inbox to process resumes.

The handy Reports view displays a summary of candidate records added along with links and also provides a summary of emails where parsing has failed and the reason. In addition to parsing resumes, you can automatically associate added candidates to specific job openings, provided candidates specify the Job ID or Job Title, in the required format, within the email Subject. Similarly, the source can also be set based on the Subject content. These options are extremely useful when applicant emails from Job Boards are parsed.

You can fine tune the settings to suit your convenience. Setting the default source for added candidates to Resume Inbox makes it easy to identify, retrieve and work with candidate records at a later time. You can also decide whether to overwrite or skip records identified as duplicate. 

You save on time and effort and it couldn’t get any better than this! Why wait any longer to work the smart way? Start using the Resume Inbox today and make your recruitment routine a breeze.

    Hi, if I integrate my email with Zoho mail will it also parse all the earlier emails in my inbox prior to intergation? Say for the last 3 years?

    • Shirley R Graceya

      Hello Nandini,

      If you integrate your email with Zoho Mail, you won’t be able to parse emails existing in your inbox prior to the integration. To do this you will need to send an email to support@zohorecruit.com to have these emails migrated.

      Thanks,
      Shirley
