Add LinkedIn Posting Contract

  • SmartRecruit


Follow these instructions to add your LinkedIn Job Slots contract to SmartRecruiters.

Getting started

Here are a few things to keep in mind before you begin:

  • You'll need to have an Administrator-level account in LinkedIn to find your contract details.
  • If you have LinkedIn Job Slots and Recruiter contracts, you can connect both contracts to SmartRecruiters at the same time, but you'll have to add them both separately. Make sure to use the right contract ID for each contract when connecting it.
  • If you have a single Job Slots contract, you can easily add that contract to SmartRecruiters on your own.
  • If you are adding multiple contracts with LinkedIn, make sure to use distincitive names for your contracts.

If you have a single contract, follow these steps to find the contract details and enter them in SmartRecruiters.
