eRecruitment: Job Agents in the carrer opptns of candidate.

Hi All,

There is an job agent view in the career oppurtunities where the candidate can select the job search criteria and save them as the job agent and there is also option of notifiying by email when the information in the job posting matches the info in the job agent.

I wanted to know how this piece of functionality works, my doubts are like will the candidates gets the notifications once the publication/posting instance is released or after the rls of the req...

Tried to find the info on this in Sdn but in vain..

Can any one pls let me know how this piece of functianality is working.. is there any config to be done for this.

Thanks & Regards,

    Hello Dipu,

    the job agent is nothing else than a search for publications run in background. The candidate saves more or less a variant for the search mask. A peridical service is processing a search based on these variant and sends the results in a smartform to the candidate. So it is publication based. The information is processed when it is published.

    Only special here is that for any unknown reason this is not done by the standard periodical services but by an own one. You find the settings for it under E-recruiting -> Talent Warehouse -> Candidate -> Candidate Services -> Jobservice

    Best regards

      Hi Roman,

      I was able to find the service its RCF_AGENT_SERVICES which sents out the email based on the search mask what the user has selected in the job search. As you said it depends on the publication especially date of creation of publication which is compared in the prg against the Job agent creation date so that the candidates can get the notification of the posting which satisfies there job search criteria after the Job agent created..i.e. the new postings.

      With your inputs was able to find and understand the code.

      Thanks again,
