Candidates can withdraw their application to a job from the Candidate portal. Hiring team members with full access to the job can also mark the candidate as withdrawn.

Withdraw as candidate

To withdraw your applications to a company:

  1. Log into your Candidate Portal at my.smartrecruiters.com.
  2. If you've applied to more than one company who uses SmartRecruiters, make sure to select the right company.
  3. Open the dropdown menu next to the position's title and click Withdraw from... 
  4. Confirm that you'd like to withdraw all applications for that company.

There are two things to keep in mind about withdrawing as a candidate:

  • Withdrawal simply marks your applications as withdrawn, and does not delete your information or profile.
  • If you have multiple applications to the same company, and you withdraw one, all of your applications are marked as withdrawn.

Withdraw for candidate

Hiring team members with full access to the job can also mark the candidate as withdrawn from the candidates profile.

  1. Click the More tab.
  2. Select Mark as Withdrawn.
  3. Choose an optional reason for withdrawal.

Reasons are reported in the Applicant Flow and Applications reports.
