How to understand the second announcement

Sometimes there are two job announcements for the same job. Usually, one job announcement will be open to the public and the other job announcement will be open to a set of other hiring paths. The This job is open to section will tell you who is eligible to apply. Make sure you apply to the right job announcement.
