What is CV Editor?

The CV Editor plugin can help recruiters to save time when working on candidate records.

You can edit a stored candidate CV and save the changes without having to go back and forth.

How will CV Editor save me time?

We all know that the daily tasks involved with recruiting can be time-consuming.

Now, instead of having to complete the following steps…

  1. Download the CV
  2. Edit the document
  3. Save the file locally
  4. Upload it to the candidate record

…you can use the CV editor to open, edit, and save directly back into their candidate record.

This means it’s incredibly easy and quick to update the record and will save you time.
