LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect (RSC) is an integration that allows your organization to seamlessly source and manage candidate information across Greenhouse and LinkedIn Recruiter. With a Greenhouse Recruiting user account connected to LinkedIn Recruiter, a Greenhouse user can access the LinkedIn tab on a candidate's profile.

In this article, we will provide an overview of the various features associated with the LinkedIn RSC integration.

Export prospect from LinkedIn Recruiter to a job

From your LinkedIn Recruiter page, you can export a prospect to available jobs in your organization. To export a prospect to a job in your organization, click the Ellipsis icon Icon_-_Ellipses.png and select Export to ATS.

Use the Export to your ATS panel on the right hand-side to select a job in your organization and click Export. The prospect will be assigned to the job within your Greenhouse user account.

Note: When you export a candidate from LinkedIn Recruiter to Greenhouse Recruiting, the candidate's source will show as LinkedIn (Prospecting), with 'Who gets credit' set as the person who exported the candidate.

Note: If the job location formatting in Greenhouse Recruiting does not match the location formatting for the LinkedIn job, LinkedIn will automatically set the location to United States of America on the LinkedIn posting. 1-click export can be deactivated through the LinkedIn Recruiter platform by a contract administrator.

Export prospect via LinkedIn InMail

After an organization has enabled the LinkedIn RSC integration with contract-level access, a new prospect profile will be created in Greenhouse Recruiting when you take all of the following steps using LinkedIn InMail:

1. LinkedIn user accepts a Recruiter InMail.
2. LinkedIn user responds to the InMail.
3. LinkedIn user elects to share their contact information.

Note: If a prospect is created via the InMail feature, the prospect will have a LinkedIn InMail candidate tag, and the candidate's source will show as LinkedIn (Prospecting), with 'Who gets credit' set as the person who exported the candidate.

If you search for a candidate in LinkedIn Recruiter, you can easily ascertain information about the candidate. Once you have identified your candidate from your search results, click ATS to reveal information about that candidate, such as the job they are associated with and their email address.

Greenhouse LinkedIn Tab

To use the LinkedIn integration within Greenhouse Recruiting, navigate to a candidate's profile and click the LinkedIn tab.

Note: The LinkedIn tab will only display candidate LinkedIn information if the candidate has an email attached to their Greenhouse profile. If this candidate was added to your account through LinkedIn Recruiter's Export feature, you will need to manually add the prospect's email (for more information: LinkedIn's Scraping Software Policy). Additionally, the initial sync of your Greenhouse account with LinkedIn Recruiter can take a few hours to fully sync depending on the amount of your candidates.
