3022575 - Employment History Date Calculation is not correct - Recruiting Management


When viewing the a Candidate's Employment History via his Candidate Profile they data calculation is incorrect for example: 

Candidate has a Employment history from 9/01/2014 to 5/04/2015 the system should display 8 months but it shows 9 months.

NOTE: "Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental."

This is actually an expected behavior, the calculation rounds up to the nearest month. if you go 1 month and a day, it will show as 2 months

For a clearer explanation, If you go from Sep 1, 2014 to Apr 30, 2015; it is 8 months. When you step into May 1, it is the beginning of (1st day) of the new month. So it becomes 8 months and 1 day. then it rounds up to the next number of months, and it becomes 9 months.
