How to: Import Resumes to Create Contacts and Disable Company + Job Title Parsing

You are able to import candidate resumes into Crelate, and create candidates based on the information in the resume.  You can import these in bulk, up to 250 at a time, and Crelate will parse the resumes and create your candidates.

 Importing Candidates from the Home Screen

  • Click on the Crelate button in the upper left corner
  • Click on Import Contacts


Import Screen

  • Once the Import Screen appears, click on the box area in the upper left to select your resumes on your computer.
  • You can can apply tags to all of the resumes being imported, as well as select a job that you want the candidates to be imported into.
  • You can also set the source, and owner (responsible recruiter) for the candidates as well
  • Note: Tags, Source, and Owner will be applied to ALL resumes imported at the same time.
  • Click Start Import

Parsed Information

Crelate will parse the following information from a resume:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Email Addresses
  • Phone Numbers
  • Physical Addresses
  • Current position and company
  • Web Links, such as personal website or LinkedIn URL.

Note: Crelate does not parse past employment or education, or skills.  Instead, we index this information and make each candidates resume searchable within Crelate.

Quality Check Screen

  • On the quality check screen, it will show you each candidate created, and a preview of their resume. From there, you may also manage that duplicate by attaching that resume to the existing duplicate in your database OR creating that as a new contact.
  • You can click on any of the fields parsed to make changes, such as name, email address or phone number.
  • Click Continue

Summary Screen

  • On the next screen, you can view a summary of the contacts created, as well as see if there were any duplicates produced. 
  • Click Close


You may disable the company and job title parsing by navigating to Settings>>Other. From there you may disable the parsing of job titles and companies only moving forward.
