Apply with LinkedIn is a plugin you can activate for your account, making it possible for candidates to apply to your job postings using their LinkedIn profiles. 

Enable Apply with LinkedIn

Before activating this in Teamtailor ensure your agreement fulfils LinkedIn's requirements for activating this feature, which is a minimum of 1 Recruiter Seat or Paid Job Slot. Read more about this here.

Head over to the Marketplace and activate this feature under Partners All partners or by searching for Apply With LinkedIn.

Once the Activate button is clicked, choose Go to settings or navigate there through Settings → Recruitment → Apply with. Here toggle on Apply with LinkedIn and open the settings via the cogwheel button.

Start by signing in to your LinkedIn account. Then click on Setup LinkedIn partnership and select the contract you want to use.

Click on Choose integrations to make the integrations selectable.

Enable Apply Connect (1) and make sure the option Apply With LinkedIn is checked in the View features toggle (2). Follow the instructions to enable the feature. You'll see a Your integration has been successfully requested message once the connection is completed correctly.

Once this is done, your candidates can apply with their LinkedIn profiles on all your jobs!

How it works 

After you've set up the partnership with LinkedIn, your candidates can choose to apply to your job postings with their LinkedIn profile by clicking Apply with LinkedIn. By doing so, their information will automatically be filled in. They will also have the option to import their LinkedIn profile, so you can see their work experience and education. 

The candidate can edit the imported info, as well as preview the summary.

Candidate profile

In the candidate's profile in your Teamtailor account, you will see the imported LinkedIn profile as well as a link to it at LinkedIn. It will look something like this:


"There seems to be a problem"

When opening Settings → Recruitment → Apply with → Apply With LinkedIn, you might see the error message displayed below. If you see this, it might be that your LinkedIn user lacks the right access to view the content. The integration might still be up and running as it should, as long as one of your colleagues with the right access made the integration.
