You can view Cornerstone data by clickingin the candidate's details section on LinkedIn Recruiter. This opens a pop-up that displays their Cornerstone data. Much of the same candidate data that is visible in your Cornerstone portal will also be visible in LinkedIn Recruiter.
For example, you can view status changes and dates so that you know which jobs the candidate applied to, as well as their current and previous status(es) for those jobs. Note: A candidate’s application for a job is not visible until they are moved out of the New Submissions stage.
You can view comments from interviewers and their recommendation. A candidates score does not display.
Comments from recruiters and stakeholders will be visible in LinkedIn Recruiter so that you can use their input to make decisions about what actions to take. If attachments were included in the comment in Cornerstone, the attachment will not be visible in LinkedIn Recruiter.
Information for candidates who have been archived, inactivated, or deleted will not display in LinkedIn Recruiter.
While viewing a candidate's profile in LinkedIn Recruiter, a recruiter can send an InMail to a candidate.
When responding to the InMail, the candidate will have the option to share their contact information with the recruiter. When the candidate replies, basic information about the candidate is synced from LinkedIn to Cornerstone. If no matching candidate is found in Cornerstone, a basic profile will be created with the candidate's name. No resume/CV information is synced from LinkedIn to Cornerstone. These candidates can now be added to requisitions using the Add Submission functionality on the Requisition Snapshot page, or they can be exported directly to a requisition from LinkedIn (see the "Export Candidate" section below). Approximately an hour after the candidate replies, a link to their Applicant Snapshot page should be visible in LinkedIn Recruiter.
If the candidate chose to share their contact information, the email address and phone number will be visible on the "ATS" tab of the LinkedIn profile approximately an hour after the candidate replied.
Candidates can be exported from LinkedIn Recruiter to jobs in Cornerstone. To export a candidate:
- Navigate to their profile in LinkedIn Recruiter.
- Click the ellipsis icon and select . This opens the Export to your ATS flyout.
- Click the Job Name field and search for the job by keyword or job ID number. For example, entering "Product" should return options for "Product Manager" or "Associate Product Manager." Similarly, entering "25" will return job requisitions with IDs such as 25, 251, 252, etc. By default, no jobs will appear in the Job Name field. Note: Entering a prefix with the job ID (e.x., Req123) will likely result in no match.
The jobs that display are the jobs to which you have access based on your permission constraints, as well as those that meet the required criteria for syncing 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.
Note: A recently created job that meets the criteria listed above may not appear for approximately two hours. The requisition must first be synced to LinkedIn, which occurs roughly every thirty minutes, and a separate list of the users who have access to the requisition must also be synced to LinkedIn, which occurs roughly every two hours.
To confirm the success of the export, click the ATS tab. An Export Summary section will indicate if the export is in progress, complete, or needs to be retried. This section will also show profile information from Cornerstone, as well as contact information shared by the candidate if they chose to share their contact information in response to an InMail.
When the export occurs, basic information about the candidate is synced from LinkedIn to Cornerstone. If no matching candidate is found in Cornerstone, a basic profile will be created with the candidate's name and a link to their LinkedIn profile. Additionally, an incomplete application for the selected job will be created. No resume/CV information is synced from LinkedIn to Cornerstone. To gain more information about a candidate, a recruiter can visit the LinkedIn tab of the Applicant Profile. Additionally, the recruiter can invite the candidate to apply to the requisition, where they can submit a resume/CV, answer pre-screening questions, and more.
