In this guide you'll learn how to add a candidate to a job that you have been given
permission to view. 

Before you begin, you'll need to have been setup on your client's Pinpoint system as a recruiter, and have been assigned permissions to view the job that you want to add a candidate to. Your client can do this for you.

Note that the team at Pinpoint are unable to make any changes to client systems.

Locate the job you wish to add the candidate to and click on the job title to open it.

Q. Can other recruiters see my applicants?
A. No, a recruiter can only see the applicants they have submitted.

Q. If I write a comment about the candidate, who can see this?
A. Only the client can view this. Neither the candidate or other recruiters can see your comments.

Q. I can't see the job that I would like to add the candidate to.
A. Your client is responsible for managing permissions, so please liaise with them directly.

Q. How should I communicate with my client regarding a candidate?
A. You can add comments specific to a candidate in the comments section of Pinpoint, however you won't be able to view any comments that that client writes. In cases where you need a response from your client, we would recommend that you get in touch with them separately..
