2198169 - How do job filters work in a Career Site - Recruiting Management


Job filters allow a candidate to refine their job search in an external career site.

There are 2 types of job filters in a career site:

  • Standard job filters
  • Custom job filters

A candidate accessing the career site for job search will not be able to edit/remove a filter, however, it is possible to do so from Provisioning.
