When unchecked, then the following occurs on the Applicant Profile page when accessing the applicant profile from Manage Candidates, Manage Applicants (Legacy), Requisition Snapshot, Candidate Search, or Search Candidates (Legacy) results pages:
- The list of other jobs in the left navigation panel is hidden. Note: If the applicant applied to the same requisition multiple times, then the only requisition that displays is the requisition that the recruiter accessed from the Manage Applicants, New Submission, Requisition Snapshot, or Search Candidates results pages.
- The Applicant Snapshot link is hidden.
- The Potential Duplicate Applicant flag is hidden, if enabled.
An internal employee applies to multiple requisitions within their organization. The employee's manager is a reviewer and has access to the employee's Applicant Profile page. When the manager views the employee's Applicant Profile page, she sees that the employee has applied to other jobs at the company without informing her of their interest in leaving their current position. If the list of other jobs were hidden, then the manager would not have access to the employee's application data for other jobs.
The Candidate Application section allows administrators to define settings for reapplying to open requisitions and applying through LinkedIn for internal applicants. The following options are available:
External applicants may re-apply to a requisition after they receive a disposition
This option is checked by default. When checked, external applicants can reapply to open positions to which they have already applied, providing that they do not currently have an active status for the position.
