How does the JobScore ←→ LinkedIn Recruiter integration work?

The JobScore Recruiter System Connect integration connects candidates in JobScore with LinkedIn Recruiter profiles.  It provides two-way synchronization, so information about JobScore candidates will appear in LinkedIn Recruiter, and information from LinkedIn Recruiter will appear in JobScore.

The integration reduces the need to toggle between the two systems and eliminates the need to perform cut-and-paste data entry... so your recruiting team has perfect visibility and the most up to date information at all times.

This article describes the features of the integration.  To activate Recruiter System Connect, please read the article on how to set up the integration.

How candidates in JobScore are connected to LinkedIn profiles

There are three ways a candidate in JobScore can be connected to a profile in LinkedIn Recruiter:

  1. If a candidate's home email address in JobScore matches the email address on a LinkedIn profile, it will be automatically connected.
  2. If a candidate is added to JobScore from LinkedIn Recruiter, it's automatically connected. (details here)
  3. When you try to view a LinkedIn profile in JobScore and a candidate is not connected, you can manually connect it.

Viewing JobScore data in LinkedIn Recruiter

Once you've activated the integration and connected your recruiter seat information from JobScore will begin to appear in LinkedIn Recruiter:

Past Applicants Spotlight

When you run searches in LinkedIn Recruiter you'll see a new control on the far right called "Past Applicants" that shows how many of the candidates returned in the search results are currently in your JobScore account: 



The In-ATS Indicator

When you review a profile in LinkedIn Recruiter if it's connected to a JobScore candidate, you'll see an "in ATS" indicator that looks like this:


The In-ATS preview

When you click on the indicator you'll be shown a preview of information about the candidate in JobScore.  This includes what jobs they've been considered for and whether they have any notes or interviews on their record:


If you click on the candidate's name in the preview, a new browser tab will open with the candidate's record in JobScore. 

If you click on the jobs, notes or interviews links in the preview, lightboxes will open that show more details about the jobs, stage changes, notes and interviews from the candidate's record in JobScore:


Accessing this information from JobScore inside LinkedIn Recruiter streamlines your sourcing by ensuring everyone has the information they need when they need it.

Moving candidates from LinkedIn Recruiter to JobScore

There are two ways that profiles from LinkedIn Recruiter can be moved into your JobScore account


When in the LinkedIn Recruiter user experience if a LinkedIn profile is not connected to a JobScore candidate, you can click to add them to JobScore and assign them to a job in one step.

On the profile in LinkedIn Recruiter you'll see an option called "Export to JobScore" - type in the title of the Job you want to assign the candidate to, click export and voila!  The candidate will be added to your JobScore account and assigned to the job.


Due to LinkedIn's terms of service only the candidate's name, job title and current employer will be added to JobScore, not thier email address or phone number.


If you send a prospect an InMail and they reply, a candidate record will automatically be created in JobScore.  If the candidate gives explicit permission to do so their phone number and email will also be passed into JobScore.  Here's what the option looks like for the candidate in the InMail:


When automatically imported, the newly created candidate will not be assigned to any jobs.  These profiles can be found on the Candidate Manager > Unassigned page.

Viewing LinkedIn Recruiter data in JobScore

Once you've activated the integration some information from LinkedIn Recruiter will begin to appear in JobScore for every user in your account (they don't have to have a LinkedIn Recruiter seat).

Whenever you see a candidate's name in JobScore, a LinkedIn icon will appear next to their name.  Clicking on it will take you to a new LinkedIn tab on the candidate's JobScore record.  This tab shows the current information from the candidate's LinkedIn profile inside the JobScore user interface, like this:


Everyone in your JobScore account will be able to see this... so if hiring managers want to flip through LinkedIn Profiles and disposition candidates, they can do so like this:


Unique features in JobScore for LinkedIn Recruiter seat holders

If you connect a paid LinkedIn Recruiter seat to your JobScore user account a series of additional features are activated in JobScore.

Enhanced profiles

When you view a LinkedIn profile inside JobScore a series of buttons will appear.  These allow you to easily add the candidate to a project, toggle to their profile in LinkedIn Recruiter and more.


View LinkedIn Recruiter notes in JobScore

If a candidate is connected to a LinkedIn profile and there are notes on their profile in LinkedIn Recruiter, they will appear as notes in JobScore:


View LinkedIn InMails in JobScore

If a candidate is connected to a LinkedIn profile and they've been sent InMails through your LinekdIn Recruiter account, they will appear as emails in JobScore:


Privacy and Access Control

Only users with connected LinkedIn Recruiter seats will be able to read LinkedIn Recruiter note and InMmail content in JobScore.  Users that are not connected to a seat will only be able to see that LinkedIn Recruiter notes and InMails exist and who created them.  They'll have to ask a seatholder for help to view this data.

Using LinkedIn Recruiter data throughout the hiring process

Synchronizing LinkedIn Recruiter data and having it appear in JobScore can really help streamline your hiring workflow.  Here's how:

When new candidates apply

Sometimes when a candidate applies they may have a history in LinkedIn Recruiter, including multiple InMails and notes.  When candidates apply JobScore will try to connect them to their LinkedIn profile before sending you a candidate alert. 

So if there's a match, synchronized notes and emails will appear on their JobScore record, even though their application is brand new:


When reviewing candidates

The same is true when reviewing candidates in the JobScore user experience.  Whether you're reviewing candidates on the candidate manager in the list view, or looking at individual candidate records, you'll be able to see ar a glance if they are associated LinkedIn Notes and InMails:


When interviewing candidates

Finally, this information is easily accessible when you interview candidates. 

On the interview candidate page you can see the candidae's LinkedIn profile - along with their resume and interview questions. Interviewers can also read LinkedIn Notes & InMails if they have a connected recruiter seat:  


Mobile ATS user experience

LinkedIn Profiles, LinkedIn notes and InMails also appear in the JobScore Mobile user experience:


LinkedIn Recruiter data is surfaced throughout the hiring process - from when you first review a candidate all the way through every discussion and interview.

Synchronization technical details

New candidate data added to JobScore is immediately synchronized into LinkedIn Recruiter.  This means that the next time someone opens a profile in LinkedIn Recruiter, Jobscore data will appear.

New data added to LinkedIn Recruiter is only synchronized into JobScore every half hour.  This means that if you add a note in LinkedIn Recruiter, or send an InMail it might take a while for it to appear on the candidate record in JobScore.
