In this article, we will look into adding the branding information to the Candidate facing Notifications that are triggered from the External Career Site.
When there are multiple Career sites one for each subsidiary company, then the notifications that get triggered to the candidates need to use the appropriate logo based on which career site they use. If they get notification using a different logo, then the candidate experience will be impacted and they might get into confusion on where they have applied for.
We can achieve this functionality using the “HTML Templates for Candidate Notifications” feature.
We need to configure the template of type “CE Notification Template” to achieve this requirement.
