Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to an external job posting
  2. Notice that only the req number is visible - "Job Opportunities (Job Req ID)"
  3. Issue happens on English en_US language only


  • Customer used 3 tier language to change translation of job title in the en_US language
  • While the text was translated, the {0} variable character (the one that will resolve the title) was not copied over
  • OLD value in 3 tier language file "Career Oppportunities:{0}"
  • NEW/Incorrect value in 3 tier language file replaced with "Job Oppportunities"
  • Correct value should be "Job Oppportunities: {0}"


Update 3 tier language KEY with Correct value should be "Job Oppportunities: {0}"

Note: Career Oppurtunties and the Job Requisition ID are hardcoded in the RCM careers site and cannot be removed.
