1. Go to Recruitment > Recruit and select the relevant job.

2. Identify the relevant line item for the candidate profile that you want to delete

3. Click on the hamburger icon in the last column of the list and select Delete from the list of options.

4. You will have a pop-up come on the screen to confirm the deletion. Once you hit delete, the candidate profile will go to the trash bin.

2. You can find the candidate profile in the Recruit > Candidates tab.

3. Click on the candidate line item to open the candidate 360 profile. You will find the Delete Forever option here.

4. Once you click on Delete Forever, all data and traces of the candidate will be removed.

### Restoring a candidate's profile
