    The boss wanted to employ the applicants who were on the same page.

    on the same page (especially NAmE) if two or more people or groups are on the same page, they agree about what they are trying to achieve: Are employers and employees on the same page when it comes to retirement benefits? It was an effort to get us all on the same page.

    Re: on the same page

    I have not ever heard of this being used before, so my guess it is not in popular use. But I would think that you could equate it with the expression
    'They were of a like mind'.
