A lot of recruiting happens in email.. and cutting & pasting information from email into your ATS feels like a big waste of time that slows you down.
Our new Email Tracking feature empowers your team to add information to JobScore by simply sending an email. Email Tracking includes 3 email “inboxes” to add resumes, track candidate email correspondence and add notes.
Email Tracking is part of the $249/mo Premium Plan and our new $499/mo Enterprise Plan.
The Resume Inbox
Now when candidates send you resumes you can just forward them to firstname.lastname@example.org as an attachment and click send. Done.
The resume inbox is also a great way to supercharge your internal referral program - your team can add referrals JobScore by just sending an email.
The Email Inbox
Get candidate emails into JobScore using your own email client (gmail, hotmail, whatever) without logging in. You can store emails two ways:
1. Add email@example.com to the bcc: line when you compose an email to a candidate.
2. Forward messages you receive from candidates to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The email inbox makes easy to track both emails sent to candidates and their responses for all to see.
The Notes Inbox
Capturing feedback and discussions about candidates just got super-easy… now your team doesn’t even have to log in to add notes to JobScore!
Using the notes inbox is simple - just reply to messages sent from JobScore that have ## reply above this line ## at the top of the message and whatever you write in your reply will be added as a note.

Note alert emails
JobScore can now let you know when your colleagues add notes to candidates.
Here’s how it works: we’ve added a “note alerts” control for each member of the hiring team for every job. When you turn on note alerts that person is notified every time someone else adds a note to a candidate.
Add notes by email
You’ll now see “Reply above this line” at the top of many JobScore emails. When you reply to these emails the text and attachments of your response are added to JobScore as a note.
This is great for hiring managers and mobile email users - it make it super-simple to add feedback without logging into the system.
Capture email discussions in notes
Turning on note alerts for your entire hiring team makes it easy to capture conversations about candidates by just replying to emails… there’s no need to log in or remember to cut-and paste information into the system - the team can use email naturally and the entire discussion will be saved in JobScore.
Adding notes by email and capturing email discussions are only available for employers on our Premium Plan. Not on the premium plan?
Multi-user private notes
Need to share information with only a few people? Now when you make a note private you can allow other specific people to access it. This is particularly useful when recruiters and hiring managers need to share compensation information with each other - give it a try!
Multi-user private notes make note alerts much more usable. Only want a few people to be notified about a note instead of everyone? Just make it private.
Preview notes, tasks & emails
When a candidate is further along in the process they often already have many logged notes, emails and tasks
When you add a add new notes to one of these candidates many times you need to refer to old notes, tasks and emails… Now you can easily click to preview notes, emails and tasks inline - there’s no need to leave the page then come back and start over!
Notes were great before this update! Cool features include
We’re 5+ years into building JobScore. We’ve grown a lot… but we’ve largely flown under the radar. That’s about to change.
Joel’s company was acquired 2009 and he stopped blogging. We missed “the Cheez” and given how much of what’s published as “news” smells like regurgitated press releases, we’re excited to see him step back in the fray.
Joel’s a great blogger and his writing talent, ability to sniff out a story and raise eyebrows are undeniable.
We’re working with Joel in a somewhat unique way.
Joel is not a journalist, industry analyst or corporate shill – he’s a blogger, through and through. Joel has a strong voice and he’s not afraid to step on toes, break china, or out-and-out taunt someone to punch him in the face.
We’ve asked Joel to serve the recruiting community by independently creating content to inform, entertain and stoke intelligent debate. That means he’s going to write things that don’t make everyone happy – and we believe that, for the most part, that will be a good thing.
However, it’s important to understand that we’ve given Joel carte blanche. Joel is not an employee of Jobscore, and what he writes are his opinions alone… we’ve specifically asked him to write what he sees and he thinks – not what we want.
So, if you don’t like what Joel has to say (and some of you won’t) please – don’t take it up with us – take it up with him and curse the free press.
We’re excited to welcome back a veteran, important and entertaining voice in the recruiting blogosphere and we’re excited to see what he stirs up – it’s about to get interesting.
Recently a few technology employers that use JobScore were acquired, notably Wildfire Interactive and The Bleacher Report. A hearty congratulations to everyone from these firms for a job well done.
