Handling "spontaneous applications" or "unsolicited applications" after entering the online application


1. If you receive a speculative application, which would also lead to a rejection in case of a suitable position, you can immediately reject the applicant as usual.

Assign to the appropriate position:

1. If the unsolicited application matches an advertised position, change the position and thus transfer the applicant to the "regular" application process of the position

2. If you are not responsible for this recruitment, change the responsible person in the application to the responsible recruiter
