  • Click “Add a forwarding address”.

  • Continue by clicking “Ok”.

  • You will be asked to enter a confirmation code to verify, however a code is not required. We will verify your account and approve your request within 24 hours.

  • Once we confirm that your email address is approved for auto-forwarding, please double-check in your email settings that or is enabled for auto-forwarding.

  • The “email applicant” and “email lead” sources will be automatically added when candidates are submitted through and, respectively. Make sure that each email comes with a resume file attached!
