LinkedIn Recruiter Integration

SmartRecruiters' LinkedIn Recruiter automatically imports leads from LinkedIn and gives you the candidate information you need in context, thereby reducing time spent toggling between the two systems. If you have a Corporate plan in SmartRecruiters, you can connect a LinkedIn Recruiter account to help your recruiters source and manage potential candidates from LinkedIn in SmartRecruiters. 

See these instructions for connecting LinkedIn Recruiter and SmartRecruiters.

Importing to SmartRecruiters

When you contact potential candidates via InMail through LinkedIn Recruiter, the integration automatically imports them into SmartRecruiters so that you can easily manage them.

Information imported from LinkedIn

SmartRecruiters will import the following information for each lead that you contact in LinkedIn, assuming that the LinkedIn member hasn't placed restrictions on access to their personal information:

  • First and last name
  • Location (as displayed on their LinkedIn Profile)
  • Headline (if present on their LinkedIn profile)
  • Current employer's name
  • any InMail communication related to that lead will be passed from your LinkedIn Inbox or Sent mail into your SmartRecruiters account.

Ultimately, each lead's privacy levels in LinkedIn determine how much information SmartRecruiters can import.

Candidates are imported into SmartRecruiters as Leads on the General Application along with all related InMail communication and notes. (Files attached to their LinkedIn profile are not imported). You can then assign them to jobs and review them.

All profile information the member agrees to share will also be imported to SmartRecruiters. Each candidate sourced from LinkedIn Recruiter comes into SmartRecruiters with a source of LinkedIn Recruiter so that you can analyze and track leads from LinkedIn in SmartRecruiters' Sourcing Analytics.

Exports to LinkedIn

The integration also exports candidate details from SmartRecruiters into LinkedIn. The candidate's primary job, application status, contact details, and status are exported to LinkedIn Recruiter.  When hiring teams review candidates and assign them statuses, the details for both are synced to LinkedIn Recruiter.

Information exported to LinkedIn

When you update the profile and application of a candidate who was imported to SmartRecruiters through LinkedIn Recruiter, SmartRecruiters will export the following information back to LinkedIn Recruiter:

  • The average review of the candidate,
  • their hiring status, and
  • the latest activity on their profile.
