Enable LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect (RSC)

Video Duration: 4:33

For members of your team that heavily use LinkedIn Recruiter, we’ve teamed up with LinkedIn to build LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect (RSC), an integration that allows users to leverage their LinkedIn Recruiter accounts directly within the Greenhouse dashboard.  LinkedIn RSC allows you to seamlessly access consistent, real-time candidate data across LinkedIn Recruiter and Greenhouse to streamline sourcing and candidate management all on one platform.

Note:  The user performing this one time set-up must be a contract administrator in LinkedIn.

Step 1: Activating LinkedIn RSC Integration in Greenhouse

To activate the LinkedIn RSC Integration, navigate to the Integration tab from your Greenhouse Dashboard. Use the provided search bar to search for LinkedIn and click on LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect in the results list.


From the LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect page, select Request for Company-level access. A dialogue box will appear to confirm that your request has been sent. Select Go Back and do the same for Contract-level access.



The Request buttons will change to read Notify Partner after your requests have been sent. It takes an estimated 10 seconds for Greenhouse to process your request.


To confirm that we have processed your request, either refresh the page or click on either Notify Partner buttons and click on Go Back. When your request is finished processing the buttons will read Partner Ready.



Step 2: Connecting LinkedIn Recruiter to Greenhouse

The next step to setting up the LinkedIn RSC integration is to connect LinkedIn Recruiter to Greenhouse. Navigate to your LinkedIn Recruiter Account page. Under the More tab, select Admin Settings from the drop-down menu.


From your Admin Settings page, click on the ATS tab. Locate the name of your organization and expand the settings by clicking on the downward facing arrow.


Toggle the switch ON (blue) for Company Level access and Contract Level access for your entire organization. Greenhouse can now start backfilling candidates at approximately 20,000 candidates every 30 minutes. After the candidate backfill process is complete, LinkedIn RSC will move on to also sync your inMails and inNotes.



Step 3: Connecting your Greenhouse Account to your LinkedIn Recruiter  

Note: This last step of connecting individual Greenhouse accounts to LinkedIn Recruiter will need to be done by anyone who wishes to utilize the integration.

After LinkedIn RSC has been set-up by a user with site admin permissions, you will be able to connect your individual user account to LinkedIn Recruiter. Through this connection you will be able to streamline the sourcing and management of candidates across both systems all on one platform. 

From your Greenhouse dashboard, navigate to the top right-hand corner and click on your Name.  Click on My Info from the dropdown menu.



From the My Info page, navigate to LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect and click on Connect. A new page will ask you if the information is correct. If it is, click Allow. Your user account is now connected to LinkedIn Recruiter and you are now able to access information seamlessly across both systems.
