2436717 - Refer Job to Friend redirection (Candidate Account Simplification enabled) - Recruiting


  • With an enhancement in B1702, the redirection of the link in the Refer job to friend mail would navigate the user to the "Password set" page in RCM.
  • So, an end user who clicks on the link in the email received will be redirected to the password set page of RCM where the user will be allowed to set a password.
  • Once the password is set, the user will be redirected to RMK’s job description page of the job req that the user is being referred for. The user can then choose to apply to the job without going through the lethargic process of resetting password and looking in his/ her inbox for the referral email.
