Apply Directly From LinkedIn with LinkedIn Easy Apply

Note: Only users who have the advanced "Can manage Job Board API credentials" developer permission can generate Job Board API keys.

LinkedIn Easy Apply is an integration between LinkedIn and Greenhouse that allows candidates to apply directly through LinkedIn without having to take the additional step of navigating to your company's careers page. In order to enable this feature, you will need to provide LinkedIn with your Job Board's URL Token and a Job Board API Key so they can properly configure your jobs. 

Retrieve Job Board's URL Token

You can retrieve your job board "token" in one of two ways:

1. If you have Site Admin permission levels, click the Configure tab from your Dashboard, and click on  Job Board from the left-hand panel. 

Click Edit next to your external board. The content in the editable field under URL is your token. In the example below, the Job Board's URL token is bizzz.

2. Alternatively, users with the advanced permission Can manage Job Board API credentials can follow Configure>Dev Center>Configuring Your Job Board to retrieve the URL Token.

Copy down the Job Board's URL Token for later use.

Generate an API Key

Note: As stated above, only users who have the advanced "Can manage Job Board API credentials" developer permission can generate Job Board API keys.

To generate an API Key, click on the Configure tab from your Dashboard, and navigate to the Dev Center from the left-hand panel. From the Dev Center page, click on API Credential Management

On the API Credential Management page, click the Create New API Key button.

This will generate your API key that LinkedIn needs to post applications into Greenhouse without having candidates redirect to your careers page. Copy down the API key for later use.
