Adding new Entry to every existing User

Hi, I am creating some sort of an application skills display table where every user can set his skill-level. Use Case:
I create a new application with a post request. When the application is created, every user is added to the new application. Everytime an application is added, every existing user should get a new component with the new application and a default skill level. I got as far as creating the application and adding each user. Where I struggle is with updating each user with the component. I figured out how to “inject” it into each user with a forEach loop. But I fail with the update function of the user database. I actually called the user employees.
I tried it with a lifecyclehook afterCreate on the employees Model:

'use strict';
const { parseMultipartData, sanitizeEntity } = require('strapi-utils');

 * Read the documentation (
 * to customize this model

module.exports = {
   * Triggered before user creation.
	lifecycles : {
		async afterCreate(result, data) {
			console.log('lifecycle data ', data);
			console.log('lifecycle result ', result);
			const allEmployees = await strapi.query('employees').find();

			// update new app with all existing employees
			allEmployees.forEach(employee => {
					application :,
					skill_level : 5
			try {
				allEmployees.forEach(async employee => {
					await{ id: }, allEmployees);
			} catch (error) {
				console.log('error', error);
			return sanitizeEntity(allEmployees, { model: strapi.models.employees });

I hope my explanation is clear.
Any Ideas where I go wrong?
