When you respond to a Request for Proposals (RFP), you can propose the profile of one of your Consultants already present on the platform, or create a new profile or candidate file if the Consultant does not have an account yet. Let's see in this article how to do in this second case, if your Consultant does not have an account on LittleBig.

Usefulness of the Candidate file
The candidate file is available to you when you wish to respond to an RFP without having to create a LittleBig account for your Consultant right away or without mentioning their identity.
|If you win an RFP and your proposal contained a candidate file, you will need to transform it into a Consultant profile in order to start the project.|
Adding a new Consultant or Candidate file to a proposal
When you are responding to an RFP, scroll down to the Select a consultant or a candidate file section, then :
- Click on Add employees
- In the window that will appear, use the tabs to choose whether you want to add an associate collaborator, i.e. create an account for one of your Consultant, or a Candidate file
- For an associate collaborator, you just have to indicate at least their name, surname, email address and their role on the LittleBig platform (the Consultant role is checked by default)
- For a candidate file, import the Consultant's resume (CV) in PDF format and give a title to this document
To maximize the visibility of your proposals containing Candidate files, we recommend that you fill in the optional Last Name and First Name fields.
If you wish to maintain the Consultant's anonymity, you can enter only their trigram, i.e. the first letter of their first name and the first two letters of their last name (example: John Smith > J and SM) in the corresponding fields.
You can also make these modifications to candidate files already positioned on RFPs. To do so, follow the steps described in this article.
3. Finalize the addition by clicking on Create account(s) at the bottom of the window
|If you wish to add more than one collaborator or candidate file at a time, click on Add another colleague at the bottom of the window, after filling in the required fields, and as many times as necessary.|
