Enable Keep Me Signed In

You can allow external candidates to be signed in instantly when they go to a career site to schedule interviews, provide more information, view offers, or apply to another job.

When you enable the feature, the option Keep me signed in is available on the verification screen of external career sites. Also, there is a visual indicator on the career site header when a user is signed in (note that the visual indicator appear regardless if the Keep me signed in feature is enabled or not). Candidates can easily access their profile or sign out.

  1. In the Setup and Maintenance work area, go to:

    • Offering: Recruiting and Candidate Experience

    • Functional Area: Recruiting and Candidate Experience Management

    • Task: Enterprise Recruiting and Candidate Experience Information

  2. Go to the section Keep Me Signed in for External Candidates.

  3. Select Active.

  4. Enter the number of days to remain signed in.

The clock restarts every time the candidate visits the career site within the validity period. When signing in on the same browser within the validity period, the candidate doesn't need to confirm their identity again.

Note that even though the candidate is signing in within the validity period, there is a mandatory sign in 180 days after the initial verification. Let's say for example that the number of days to remain signed in is configured as 30 days. The candidate signs in on January 1st and selects the option Keep me signed in. When the candidate comes back within 30 days, the clock will restart to add another 30 days of validity period. If the candidate visits the career site within the validity period, the clock will restart each time. However 180 days past January 1st, the candidate will be forced to confirm their identity again using a verification code. The candidate will be able to select the Keep me signed in option again.
