Add candidates to Greenhouse Recruiting via LinkedIn RSC integration

Permissions: Job Admin or above

Product tier: Available to all subscription tiers

Note: This article applies to organizations who do not have either Greenhouse CRM or the prospects feature. If your organization doesn't have one of these features, profiles added to your Greenhouse Recruiting instance 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.

Export candidate from LinkedIn Recruiter to a job

Navigate to a candidate's profile from your LinkedIn Recruiter account and click the ellipsis ellipsis.png beside the candidate's name.

Select Export to ATS from the dropdown menu.


Use the subsequent dialog box to search for a job name or job ID in your organization. Select the job to which you'd like to add the candidate and click Export.


The candidate is added to the job in your Greenhouse Recruiting account.

Note: Due to LinkedIn's scraping software policy, candidate profiles created via LinkedIn RSC import do not include the candidate's email address automatically. Be sure to manually add an email address to imported candidates, as the LinkedIn tab won't be available in Greenhouse Recruiting unless the profile includes an email address matching the email address associated with their LinkedIn profile.

View the candidate imported from LinkedIn Recruiter

Click Candidates in Greenhouse Recruiting, then click on the name of the candidate you imported.


Click into the added candidate's profile to see the job(s) the candidate has been assigned to during the LinkedIn Recruiter export.

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: When you export a candidate to Greenhouse Recruiting via the Export to ATS button in LinkedIn Recruiter, the candidate will have a LinkedIn 1-click export candidate tag. Read more about candidate tags here.
