Please note: In the coming months, we will be migrating all existing customers to our updated user interface and data model. Because of this, you may be viewing a help article that is not applicable to the version of Lever you are using! If your team began using Lever after July 15th, 2019, if you manage "opportunities" in Lever, or if the screenshots below do not match what you see in your account, please visit this article for information that is most applicable to you.

When a candidate applies to your job posting, this role is automatically added to an opportunity on their Lever profile for you. But perhaps you would like to consider this candidate for a different role, or maybe you are sourcing candidates and creating brand new profiles. Whatever the case may be, you have the ability to manually add a job posting directly to the candidate's opportunity on the candidate’s profile.

To add a job posting to a single candidate profile, scroll down in the “Overview” section of a profile and click the “+ Add Job” button.


This will open a list of your external, internal, and unlisted job postings for you to select from. If you do not see the job you are looking for in this list, either click the “+ more” option at the bottom of the list to load additional postings, or begin typing to filter for your specific posting.


Tip: You cannot add a Closed or Draft posting to a candidate profile.

If you would like to add a job posting to many candidates at once, you can do this as a bulk action! In your candidates list, select all of the candidates that you would like to add the job posting to, and click on the down caret to find the “Add posting” option. This bulk action for adding postings will apply to the candidates without any existing job postings.
