With this enhancement, administrators can enable job alerts to allow candidates to create job alerts on a mobile-friendly site job search page. Administrators must enable Job Alerts for each mobile-friendly career site that requires it.

Administrators can enable job alerts in the following location: Admin > Tools > Recruit > Career Site > Mobile-Friendly Career Sites - Settings.​



Candidates can now go to their Career Site Home page to create job alerts that send an email when relevant jobs are posted to mobile-friendly career sites.

When creating job alerts, candidates can defining the frequency of the alert and the search criteria for the alert according to the search query and filters available on the career site.

When jobs are posted that match the job alert request, an email is sent to the candidate that contains the a View job link and a See all jobs link if there are more than 10 matching jobs.

The email contains an Unsubscribe link that accesses the candidate's My Profile page to delete the job alert.
