Nominating candidates etc. can all be done outside the application. I recommend we keep this simple.

Then, candidates are just an arbitrary string and URL. "R. Tyler Croy (CloudBees)" and "https://jenkins.io/blog/whatever-rtylers-candidate-introduction-blog-post-is" should be sufficient in the account app.

As Tyler wrote earlier,

So the actual dropping of candidates in the same company after two of the same company are in can be done in that tool.
