Over time, Jobtrain have received suggestions from clients to allow the facility for candidates to upload multiple documents as part of their application process.

Including the option to upload further documents (in addition to the standard CV and cover letter), can be really useful for clients in many sectors. For example in Higher Education where there is often a need for candidates to attach research papers to their application forms. Other clients may require copies of certifications, examples of work or supporting statements.

What is multiple document upload functionality and how does work?

Within each client’s main system settings area of Jobtrain, we’ve included a new Multiple Documents Upload area. This allows clients to define the documents that they wish candidates to upload, for example “Supporting Statement” or “Research Paper”.

Defining the document types gives clients control over the documents that candidates are asked to upload. This can then be changed per application form if you wish.

The newly added feature will then appear as a separate section in the application form for the candidate to complete.

How do candidates upload multiple documents?

Candidates can use the simple browse and upload facility to select the appropriate documents. They can also give the document a description for easy reference when reviewing within the client portal, like the example below.

The candidate’s record

When the candidate’s application has been submitted, a new tab to display the uploaded documents will be displayed on the candidate’s record:

I love the multiple document upload feature – how do I get it?

For our existing clients who may be interested in this exciting new feature, please contact your Relationship Manager directly.
