  • Recruiting Management

Reproducing the Issue

1. Access the career Site of a compapy as external candidate

2. Apply to a Job

3. Now apply for one more job


There is no limitation on the number of Jobs the candidate can apply. Once a candidate has applied to a particular job in a company , he can apply to further more jobs.

When he gets hired into a requisition, the statuses of the other applications will move to 'Hired on Other Requisition' automatically.


There is no limitation for the number of jobs the external candiate can apply to . Hence it is not possible to restrict to apply for a certain number of jobs in a company.
