Communicate with candidates

This article is for anyone who can view one or more candidates in Hire.
Note: You must connect to Gmail to use this feature. 

Understanding Gmail sync


Email candidates

  1. Sign in to Hire.
  2. On the left, select Candidates.
  3. Check the box next to the candidates you'd like to email. Select multiple boxes to bulk email candidates.
  4. At the top, select Actions and then Email.
  5. Select a template or fill out the form with the required information. If you choose a template, you can still edit the subject and email body before sending.
  6. Select Send.

To remove an email from Hire, select Delete Delete next to the email. This action does not delete the email from your Gmail inbox. See Connect to Gmail for information. 

Note: Once members of the Hiring Team connect to Gmail, all emails between the Hiring Team members and a candidate will appear in the Activity tab of the candidate's profile. Only Hiring Team members will be able to view these emails.

 Use an email template

  1. Sign in to Hire.
  2. Find the candidate.
  3. On the candidate's profile page, to the right, select Email.
  4. Select an email template from the drop-down menu.
  5. Edit or personalize the message. (Optional)
  6. Select Send.
You can customize, create, and edit these templates at any time. 



Gmail labels

Hire labels incoming emails from candidates to help you stay organized. Any time a candidate emails a member of the hiring team, the incoming email will be labeled as "Hire."

See Organize your inbox using labels for more information.
