The CV Import Tool provides a method to create and populate a new Candidate record by using an electronic CV. The Tool allows some information to be automatically populated, such as the name and address, and also enables additional information to be manually extracted from the CV to populate the new record.

Select ‘CV Import’ from the ‘My Adapt’ menu.

This will either display an empty screen, or a list of CVs already uploaded ready for import. Select a CV.

  • The CV displayed in the 'Attributes' section shows which CV is currently being displayed.

  • The left-hand column shows the details guessed from the CV by the upload process and the main section shows the CV detail.

When the 'Upload...' button is selected, the pop-up box 'Upload files(s)...' will be displayed.
