2103974 - Country of residence during the creation of the candidate - Recruiting Management


  • Can I show “Country of Residence” when creating an external candidate account?
  • Can I customize which country I want to show?


  • Recruiting Management


  • In order to make appearing the “Country of Residence” field in the creation page for the external candidate, it is required to enable DPCS (version 1 or 2).


  • DPCS allows clients to provide a data privacy prompt for internal and/or external candidates in the candidate’s preferred language and require acceptance before allowing the candidate to provide personal data.
  • Enabling DPCS version 2 you will have even more feature available, not only the Country of Residence.
  • In the drop down menu the list of countries appearing is not configurable. The reason is that this field is related to any possible person who wants to create a profile. So the list of countries must include all possible countries in the world.
  • To enable DPCS, please contact our extensive global Partner network or the Professional Services team.
