Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Recruiting External Career Site
  2. Go to create an external candidate account
  3. Check that the Job Alert button will be missing 


If you does not have the checkbox available in the Account Creation Page, you can enable it in Manage Recruiting Settings, under General Data Privacy Settings. In case the option in Manage Recruiting Settings is not available, it means that the instance does not have RMK enabled and configured.


To enabled the checkbox in the Account Creation Page:

  1. Admin Center > Manage Recruiting Settings
  2. General Data Privacy Settings
  3. Check the box for "Enable selection of the "Job Alets" checkbox by default at account creation"
