Please Note: when you have Mobile Apply enabled with RMK, it is the expected system behavior that the job description will not be available.

The "Show job description to Applicants even after the job posting is taken down" option will work only with RCM when mobile apply is not enabled.

Note there is an enhancement request already logged for this behaviour to be enhanced . You can access and vote for it here
