There is a basic principle: No application without applicant account. So you first have to create an applicant account before an application can be created. How you further handle this account is up to you. You can allow the applicant to manage his applications. In that case you should involve him actively into the account creation. But you also could create the account implicitly right before creating the application with a placeholder password.

There is also the option to create an internal applicant account to flag it as an employee of the company. He will be permitted to see the internally posted jobs of the company but the account has to be verified with an email to his company email account. Only the set up email domains (see just hire settings area) can be used here.

The password you submit here needs to match the softgarden default password policy: Minimum length of 10 characters containing at least one uppercase letter, one lowercase letter, one digit and one special character
