    Default Relative clause

    Hello.

    Can you check the sentence below for correctness, please?

    Few of the applicants who were applied for a job, which was advertised, had the necessary qualifications.

    Are the commas in the right places of the sentence?

    Thank you very much!

    Yes, if you're simply trying to write an example of a non-defining relative 'which'-clause.

    But you'd normally say
    Few of the applicants who applied for the advertised job had the necessary qualifications.
