When a candidate applies for a specific job, the job’s category can be passed into the candidate record
into the Category field. This will not overwrite any existing data in that field, it will just ADD the category
if it does not already exist on the candidate record.
As part of the default process, “Other Area(s)” (or whatever you have set as your default category) will also display on the candidate record. Job categories are only added when a candidate applies to a specific job, no category is added if the candidate is using the Quick Apply/Skip the Search option or applying without a specific job attached.
