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
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?
A candidate's InMail history will display on the Emails tab of the Applicant Profile page. The date, sender, subject, and message body is included. InMail will appear with “via LinkedIn” next to the name of the user who sent the email. Attachments are not included. InMail history will only be visible to users who have a LinkedIn Recruiter seat on the same contract.
Notes that are created in LinkedIn Recruiter will be visible on the Comments tab on the Applicant Profile page. LinkedIn Recruiter notes will appear with "via LinkedIn" next to the name of the user who submitted the comment. Notes will only be visible to users who have a LinkedIn Recruiter seat on the same contract.
A candidate's LinkedIn profile will be visible on a new "LinkedIn" tab on the Applicant Profile page. This tab will be available for all portals that enable LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect. Users with a LinkedIn Recruiter seat will be able to see the full LinkedIn profile, including links to save the candidate to a project, send an InMail, or choose to be notified when the candidate updates their LinkedIn profile. Users without a LinkedIn Recruiter seat will see the candidate’s public LinkedIn profile.
- 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.
John Smith is a recruiter at Acme Co. who is constrained to the Sales division, which means he cannot see requisitions in the Engineering Division or application information from candidates who applied to requisitions in the Engineering division. John has access to LinkedIn Recruiter. If Acme Co. enables the LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect integration before the 9 November 2018 patch release, then when John looks at LinkedIn Recruiter, he will be able to export candidates to open requisitions in Sales, as well as all other divisions. Additionally, if John views the LinkedIn profile of a candidate who applied to an Engineering position, he will be able to see which jobs the candidate applied to, as well as any status information, notes, and interview feedback for those roles. After the 9 November 2018 patch release, John’s constraints will be synced from Cornerstone to LinkedIn and will begin restricting the Cornerstone information that John can see in LinkedIn Recruiter. He will only be able to export candidates to requisitions in the Sales division, and he will only see Cornerstone application details for candidates who applied to Sales requisitions.
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.
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|
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.
