2280099 - Can Candidates Apply to a Job if the Job posting has expired?

Symptom

Is it possible for candidates to apply for a job via "Invited to Apply" link if the job is not posted on the career site or job has taken down?

Environment

SuccessFactors BizX - Recruiting Management(RCM)

Resolution

Yes, its possible for candidates to apply for a job via "Invited to Apply" even if the job is not posted on the career sites.

This basically depends on the two important settings defined in the "Recruiting Settings".

1. Allow forwarding of candidates to unposted jobs -> This option will allow you to forward candidates on unposted jobs.
2. Show job description to Applicants even after the job posting is taken down -> This option will allow candidate to apply through "Invited to Apply" link.

Note: The second option may sound like that it will only show job description to candidate but it's actually not correct. Once this option is enabled candidate will see the job posting description along with the option to apply on it. Below is the page that candidates will see if the second option is enabled in the Recruiting Settings.
