LinkMatch is a Google Chrome Extension for LinkedIn that can help users save hours on manual searches on LinkedIn by automating the process as much as possible.

Greenhouse's Recruiting integration with LinkMatch allows you to see which LinkedIn profiles already exist in your Greenhouse Recruiting and which profiles are not.

Profiles that are in Greenhouse can be easily updated right from the LinkedIn page!
