Why are links better than attachments?

Better delivery

Email attachments are the most common delivery vehicle for viruses. Because of this, many email providers mark emails with attachments as spam. This can cause emails with attached resumes to miss your client’s inbox

Many email providers also have file size restrictions. This can mean larger files can't be attached and sent via email.

Candidately emails are created to avoid spam folders and end up in your client's inbox as intended. We use simple plain text formatting. Links use full length URLs (not shortened links) and are not embedded in the text.

Nothing to download

When your clients click on a Candidately link, there's nothing to download. This makes for a cleaner and less cluttered experience and fosters mobile viewing.

Mobile Friendly

The Candidately portal features a responsive mobile design. Your clients can view resumes anywhere, any time, and on any device.

Interaction Encouraged

A Candidately link allows clients to view and give feedback on your candidates instantly. Links also allow for better tracking and allow us to deliver real-time view and feedback notifications to all users.

Better Data Protection

Data regulation laws, such as CCPA in California, are becoming increasingly common in the United States. These laws are already common in Europe and impose restrictions on holding and sharing personal information. Oftentimes, resumes contain personal information (names, education, work histories, etc.). In the future, it's very likely that more states will place restrictions on resume sharing. For this reason, Candidately has a robust suite of resume protection tools including automatic link expiration and client portal features.
