Note: If you have a LinkedIn Recruiter account, connect it to Workable to use Recruiter job slots to promote your jobs on LinkedIn.
If you've created a premium LinkedIn post directly through LinkedIn, you can have candidates that apply routed into Workable.
- Create a job on LinkedIn and purchase a pay per click budget.
- Edit the post on LinkedIn and locate the "How you’d like people to apply" menu.
- In that section, choose "Direct applicants to an external site to apply" and you'll be prompted to supply a URL.
- Use the Workable job shortlink as the URL, found in the Workable job editor under the Find Candidates tab.
As soon as this setup is ready, candidates who apply to the job on LinkedIn will be redirected to Workable job page to submit their application. The applications through this link will appear in Workable as normal with source tracking for LinkedIn.
For all existing candidates, you can download them from LinkedIn and bulk upload them into Workable. The system will parse their profiles, extract their name, headline and email, and find links to their social media profiles.
