Add candidates to Greenhouse Recruiting with LinkedIn RSC

Permissions: Job Admin or above

Product tier: Available to all subscription tiers

Note: This article applies to organizations that don't have either Greenhouse CRM or the prospects feature. If your organization doesn't have one of these features, profiles added to your Greenhouse Recruiting account via LinkedIn RSC are added as candidates.
Users at organizations with either Greenhouse CRM or the prospects feature should click here to learn about adding profiles via LinkedIn RSC as prospects instead.

Once the LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect (RSC) integration has been enabled for your organization, users who have connected their respective Greenhouse Recruiting user accounts to LinkedIn Recruiter can add candidates to jobs directly from their LinkedIn Recruiter accounts.

When you export a candidate using LinkedIn RSC, the candidate's Source displays as LinkedIn (Prospecting), with Who gets credit set as the person who exported the candidate.

The profile also includes a LinkedIn 1-click export candidate tag. Read more about candidate tags here.

Navigate to the LinkedIn Tab to view the candidate's LinkedIn profile. 

Note: Due to LinkedIn's scraping software policy, profiles created via LinkedIn RSC don't include the candidate's email address automatically. As a result, the candidate's LinkedIn profile may not be visible in Greenhouse Recruiting until an email address is manually added. Click here to learn more about linking the candidate's profile.
