Engaging with candidates is always an important part of sourcing and recruiting for all Talent Acquisition teams. It is also a time-consuming process if you need to look at the candidate’s profile in one place and open up your email account on the other side. In hireEZ, you are able to contact your candidates right after you find their profiles. And you can email them without going back to your mailbox.
In this article, we are going to go over the multiple major engagement processes in hireEZ step by step:
- Email Integration and Signature
- Email Candidates within Your Project
- Email Candidates in Bulk
- Use Email Templates and Sequences to Engage Your Candidates
- The Messages Tab
- Email Candidates through hireEZ Chrome Extension and Gmail Assistant
Email Integration and Signature
The first thing you need to do is to set up your Email Integration in hireEZ. You can find this feature on the Profile Settings-->Email settings-->General, or through the link here.
hireEZ supports the integration of multiple email servers. You can choose one based on your work email domain and click the link Connect. Then you just need to follow the instructions to sign in to your account and allow hireEZ to get access to your account.
You may then copy and paste your email signature to the text bar below to be saved for future use. Remember to click Save before you leave the page.

Email Your Candidates Within Your Project
After setting up your email integration, you are able to contact your candidates in different stages within your project.
When you are viewing candidates in your projects, you can find their contact info on the right side of the listed profiles. You can review the full contact information of the candidate just by clicking on the blue asterisked email address there.
When you unlock the contact details, you will see the full email address of the candidate. Click on it or use the Email button at the bottom and type in your message to the candidate in the pop-up draft window.
You can also review the full contact information of the candidate by clicking on the blue asterisked email address on the candidate's profile page.
Email Candidates in Bulk
If you want to engage with multiple candidates at the same time, you can achieve this by selecting the candidates from the list. You can choose to click the checkbox beside each of them or click on the general checkbox below the pipeline. When you finish, click on the Engage button on the right.
For Business users, you may click on the Email button on the right.
Use Email Templates and Sequences to Engage Your Candidates
After clicking on the email address link, you can compose your email in the pop-up window. Engage with your candidates with a Sequence is a great way to get a higher response rate, you could choose or create a sequence at the drop-down window in the upper left corner. You can also choose a template from the Template menu.
And you can always switch your Sequence to a Single email

How to Engage Candidates with Sequences
The Messages Tab
In hireEZ, the Message tab is the place where you can find all information related to your engagement activities - when candidates reply to the emails you've sent from hireEZ, you will receive the email replies in your hireEZ Inbox as well as the work email inbox you have integrated.
You can view, reply, and keep track of your sent messages as well as manage your sequences and single email templates.
The features of the Message tab are divided into four sections: Inbox, Outbox, Sequences, Templates, and Meetings.
*Meetings feature is only available for Enterprise users.

Email Candidates through hireEZ Chrome Extension and Gmail Assistant
The hireEZ Chrome Extension works for many sourcing websites, including LinkedIn (and LinkedIn Recruiter), Twitter, GitHub, Kaggle, Stack Overflow, Google Scholar, and Google Searches. With the extension, you can email candidates that you have found outside of the hireEZ application without the need to load them into your ATS or use other contact finding tools.
You can then click on the email address link to write your engagement email.
If you choose to integrate your Gmail account with hireEZ, you may also get access to the Gmail Assistant feature through our Chrome Extension. Then you are able to locate hireEZ Inbox/Outbox in your mailbox and find your sequence and single email templates in your compose window.
Once the sequence is scheduled, you can View, Manage and Track all the emails that you send from the hireEZ application and Chrome extension in the Outbox under the Message tab of your account.
As with emails sent from inside your hireEZ application, all replies from the candidates that have been emailed from the Chrome Extension and/or Gmail Assistant will appear in your hireEZ Inbox, as well as your work email inbox.
