Use LinkedIn with Greenhouse Recruiting


Product tier: Available to all subscription tiers

Greenhouse Recruiting allows you to harness the reach of professional social media networks like LinkedIn in your recruitment efforts.

Check out all that you can accomplish when LinkedIn and Greenhouse Recruiting work together:

LinkedIn Limited Listings

In addition to free job posts on sites like Indeed, you can post your entire job board on LinkedIn for free using LinkedIn Limited Listings. While these free posts won't show up as prominently as ads purchased directly with LinkedIn, they will expand your reach and allow you to access an additional subset of candidates at no additional cost to your organization.

Unlike other free external job boards, LinkedIn Limited Listings are managed at the organization-level, meaning the free posts will either be on or off for every job that's live on your job board. 

Check out these additional considerations when using LinkedIn Limited Listings:

  • LimitedIn Limited Listings only appear in searches after relevant LinkedIn job slots and posts, and not in the recommendations throughout the site. This means that they're only visible to the subset of members who are actively looking for jobs.
  • You aren't able to manage Limited Listings in RSC, meaning that you won't have access to job analytics, suggested matches, or people who have viewed the job.
  • LinkedIn Limited Listings can't be sponsored across the site.

Use tracking links on LinkedIn for a single job post

If you're planning to post an open job on LinkedIn through a paid ad, you need to create unique URLs for the application so you can track LinkedIn as the source for candidates.

Once a job has been opened, and the job post for the position has been created and made live, you can generate a unique URL to track the candidate's source.

LinkedIn job wrapping for tracking paid posts

If you don't want to create a tracking link in Greenhouse Recruiting every time you post a job ad on LinkedIn, you can talk to your LinkedIn relationship manager about LinkedIn job wrapping.

LinkedIn job wrapping is a paid service on LinkedIn that can be leveraged for free if you have 50 or more job slots. The service automatically posts jobs from your Greenhouse Recruiting account onto your available LinkedIn job slots.

In order to implement job wrapping, you need to provide your LinkedIn relationship manager with a unique tracking code.

Allow candidates to apply with LinkedIn Easy Apply

LinkedIn Easy Apply is an integration that allows candidates to apply directly through LinkedIn without having to visit your company's careers page.

To enable this feature, you need to provide LinkedIn with your job board's URL token and a job board API key from Greenhouse Recruiting.

Add Apply with LinkedIn to your job board

Note: This feature is only available to organizations that have a LinkedIn Recruiter contract or a company account with active job slots.

Greenhouse Recruiting's integration with Apply with LinkedIn allows candidates to automatically import personal information from their LinkedIn profiles and to auto-fill applications on a job board.

If a candidate begins an application that's been posted to LinkedIn with a paid job slot but doesn't submit the application, LinkedIn records those as Apply Starters in LinkedIn Recruiter so you can reach out to them proactively.

LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect (RSC)

For members of your team who use LinkedIn Recruiter, we've built the LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect (RSC) integration, allowing you to leverage Recruiter features directly in Greenhouse Recruiting.

LinkedIn RSC helps you to seamlessly source and manage candidate information across Greenhouse Recruiting and LinkedIn Recruiter in one platform.
