When an external candidate tries to apply for a job via the link found in the notification which was sent by the concurrent request 'iRecruitment Email Vacancies to Job Seekers program', the following error occurs.

The same candidate is able to apply for the job via the IrcVisitor.jsp page. The issue persists even after personalizations have been disabled.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create an external candidate.
2. Complete work preference to receive emails of matching Jobs.
3. Run 'iRecruitment Email Vacancies to Job Seekers program'.
4. From the notification received by the candidate, push the button 'Apply Now'.
5. Log in as the external candidate.
