We all know too well ourselves that acquiring talents is hard. Sometimes, the candidate is inadequate with the position, sometimes they are overqualified, and sometimes you find their resumé impressive but are not suitable for the applied position.

So you put them in the talent pool until a position opens up and fits that candidate perfectly. What do you do next? Move their resumé to the newly opened position and call them up, of course!

Find out how you can do exactly that in GroveHR by assigning or copying a candidate.

What's the difference between Assign and Copy a candidate to another job?

  • Assign a candidate to a job: this action will reset the current Hiring stage to Applied and move them under another job.

  • Copy a candidate to a job: this action will duplicate the candidate profile. While the Hiring stage (None, Applied, Screening, Rejected, etc.) of the original profile stays the same, the newly created profiles will be Applied.

Example: Lora Curry's profile was copied to the Business Development Executive position while she initially applied for the Sales Consultant job. You can see the differences between her profiles.

Here are the steps:

  1. In Recruitment, switch to the Candidates tab.

  2. Here, you can either select that candidate from the list or type their name in the search box (Ex. Elizabeth Holmes).

  3. Click on the name to open their profile.

  4. Click More (horizontal eclipsis), then select Assign or Copy to another Job.

  5. Select which Job you want to assign or copy the candidate to.

  6. Click Assign or Copy to confirm


  • Hired candidates cannot be assigned or copied to another job.
