LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect Overview

LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect bridges the information gap between Cornerstone Recruiting and LinkedIn Recruiter by making candidate communication, notes, and application information available in both places. With this integration, a recruiter will no longer need to look up a candidate in both systems to get a complete picture of the candidate.

How Does this Integration Benefit My Organization?

Full Candidate Picture in LinkedIn and Recruiting

Drives Quicker and Easier Informed Decisions

Enhances Usability

LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect delivers a holistic view of the candidate in both LinkedIn and Cornerstone Recruiting, giving recruiters the information they need to make informed decisions more quickly.

Without this integration, LinkedIn Recruiter data will only display in LinkedIn Recruiter, and Recruiting information will only display in Recruiting. This means recruiters have to look up the candidate in both applications to get a complete view.

With LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect, recruiters can view all LinkedIn Recruiter information in Recruiting and vice versa, including InMail History, Notes, and Profiles. This provides a candidate picture in both applications. This also saves time and supports more informed decision-making by being able to look up candidate information in whichever application the recruiter is in.

What LinkedIn Recruiter Information Is Available in Cornerstone?

Considerations/Exclusions

  • Application data can be deleted from LinkedIn. Cornerstone will send deletion requests when triggered by the candidate or after the period of inactivity specified by a client.
  • Jobs must meet the following criteria to sync to LinkedIn:
    • "External Description" must contain at least 100 characters.
    • The Primary Location field must include a value for the Country field.
    • The Primary Location field must include a value for either the City field or the State/Province field.
  • This integration is only available in Production environments.

Important Information About Permission Constraints Until 9 November 2018

Before implementation of the 9 November 2018 patch release, permission constraints in Cornerstone that limit the requisitions and applicant information to which a recruiter has access are not reflected in LinkedIn Recruiter with the LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect integration. After the 9 November 2018 patch release, constraints will be synced from Cornerstone to LinkedIn and will begin restricting the Cornerstone information that recruiters can see in LinkedIn Recruiter.

Implementation

The option to activate LinkedIn Recruiter is available for all portals with Recruiting enabled. However, a LinkedIn Recruiter subscription is required for activation. LinkedIn Recruiter can be purchased through LinkedIn.

Security

The following permissions apply to this functionality:

PERMISSION NAME PERMISSION DESCRIPTION CATEGORY
Edge Integrations - Manage Grants access to the Integrations service for Edge Integrate where the administrator can configure, enable, and disable their third-party integrations that are used within the Cornerstone system. This permission cannot be constrained. This is an administrator permission. Edge
Edge Marketplace - Manage Grants access to the Marketplace service for Edge Integrate where the administrator can browse and purchase integrations that can be used to extend the Cornerstone system. This permission cannot be constrained. This is an administrator permission. Edge
Requisition: Manage Grants ability to access and manage all requisitions regardless of ownership (constraints permitting). This permission also grants read-only access to the Applicant Review tab when creating or editing a job requisition. This permission can be constrained by OU, User's OU, and Grade. Recruiting
Requisition: Owner

Enables owner to access requisitions and applicants for requisitions for which they are an owner. This permission also grants read-only access to video interviews that are completed by applicants via HireVue. For portals with Referral Suite enabled, this permission also enables requisition owners to edit the referral source on the Applicant Profile page. This permission cannot be constrained.

Note: This is a dynamically assigned permission that is not available in Security Role Administration. If the user is removed as an owner, the permission is revoked for the associated requisition. This permission cannot be manually assigned. Also, if a user has both the permission necessary to manage requisitions and be a requisition owner, the constraints of the Requisition: Manage permission overrule those of the Requisition: Owner permission. For requisition owners that do not also have permission to manage requisitions, only certain fields are editable when editing a requisition.

Recruiting
Requisition: Reviewer

Enables reviewer to access requisitions and applicants for requisitions for which they are a reviewer. This permission cannot be constrained.

Note: This is a dynamically assigned permission that is not available in Security Role Administration. Once a requisition is in a Closed or Cancelled status or if the user is removed as a reviewer, the permission is revoked for the associated requisition. This permission cannot be manually assigned.

Note: If an applicant reviewer is removed as a reviewer via the Applicant Profile page, the Requisition: Reviewer permission is revoked for the associated requisition. However, if the reviewer was also added as a reviewer via the General tab when creating, editing, or copying the requisition, the reviewer still appears on the In Review panel as a duplicate reviewer and retains access to the requisition and applicants from the Requisition: Reviewer permission. See Applicant Profile Page Overview for more information about duplicate reviewer instances.
