Importing Job Seeker Profiles
Smartjobboard created a simple tool to make job seeker profiles import a breeze.
Under Job Board > Job Seeker Profile you can import job seekers’ profiles in csv or excel format. You can use any structure/format within the file, as system will be able to work and extract information from any format you use.
If you have your file ready, you can upload it and click on Next.
On configuration page, you will see:
- Product list: choose a product these resumes will be posted under.
- Mapping table: check matching of fields that system auto-mapped for you.
Most fields from the file you are importing are already pre-matched to your site fields. But you can make changes to them manually if needed.
Order of the fields and their names are going to be exactly the same as you have them within an actual imported file.
Table also shows first 3 values for every field taken from an imported file. This is done in order to make mapping process easier for you, and let you see data you are matching.
Fields, which are highlighted in Red will not be imported into the system.
Once everything is checked, you can click Import.
