2090928 - How can we change the site's cookie behavior? - Recruiting Marketing


All Recruiting Marketing sites deliver cookies to site users' browsers. These are delivered so as to track visitor behavior, referral and source, any sort of keywords used to find the site, and of course to help them through the process of applying. However, there can be some unique considerations about cookies (some local laws govern how cookies can be used and delivered on a site), and furthermore there may be security concerns if there is an expectation that many users will be utilizing public machines or kiosks to visit the site.

There are four different cookie options that can be enabled on the site.

  • Permanent
  • Remember Me
  • Temporary
  • Server Session

Permanent means that cookies are transmitted to the user's browser that never expire and will never be removed, unless the user clears their cookies (usually as part of clearing their cache and history).

Remember Me inserts a small checkbox titled 'Remember Me' into the Subscribe and Apply business card. By checking this, a user will receive permanent cookies on their browser. By not checking this, the user will only be supplied with Temporary cookies.

Temporary means cookies are delivered to the user's browser that expire when the user closes their browser.

Finally, Server Session means that cookies are delivered to the user's browser that expire when the user closes their browser, or when the server session expires (typically about 20 minutes).

  • The default option is Permanent
  • Server Session is the recommended option and the most secure, as it is governed by the server's behavior, a set variable that does not change much, and is also the most kiosk- and public machine-friendly option.
  • Remember Me is typically the next preferred option, as this gives the control to the candidate over how cookies are utilized from the RMK site on their browser
