How to find your LinkedIn company ID

To share your postings directly from Trakstar Hire to LinkedIn, we would need to provide you with your LinkedIn company ID. This ID number identifies your company on Trakstar Hire. It allows us to send this data to LinkedIn along with your job to properly match up your Trakstar Hire posting with your LinkedIn company account.

Note: These instructions only apply to the accessible version of LinkedIn. If you have a LinkedIn Recruiter account, scroll down to learn more!

Find your LinkedIn Company ID Number:

  1. Open your LinkedIn company account. We recommend doing this in an Incognito window if you're having trouble finding your company in the following steps. 
  2. Search for your company
  3. Click "Jobs."
  4. Click "See All Jobs."
  5. Copy the ID number from the URL at the top of the Linkedin Site. This is typically a seven-digit number following 'C=' - see the example below:

Note - To confirm this is your company ID#, open a new tab, type in: "www.linkedin.com/company/(the number you copied)," and click enter. You should be redirected to your LinkedIn company page. 

  6. Paste this number into the required field on the job opening when sharing the posting to LinkedIn. 

What if I don't have the option to "See all Jobs"?

  1. Open your LinkedIn company account. We recommend doing this in an Incognito window if you're having trouble locating your company in the following steps. 
  2. Search for your company
  3. Click "See All (#) employees" on LinkedIn.

   4. Copy the ID number from the URL. In this case, the number will typically follow "CurrentCompany=%B" (see example below):

Note - To confirm this is your company ID#, open a new tab, type in: "www.linkedin.com/company/(the number you copied)," and click enter. You should be redirected to your LinkedIn company page. 

  6. Paste this number into the required field on the job opening when sharing the posting to LinkedIn. 

LinkedIn Recruiter

LinkedIn's paid version of their site.

Click on the name of the opening that you are looking for the unique job URL:

  • The opening details will display. Choose the tab that says "Candidate Sources" in between Job Details & Workflow, and you will see the Application Link URL there:

If you would also like to track clicks from a specific location on this job URL, you can use the "Share a trackable link" option to connect a source to candidates who apply via the created link.
For example, if you enter "XYZ" in the share a trackable link window, you will notice that "?source=XYZ" is added to the end of the job URL, and the source for any candidates that apply through this modified link will be recorded as "XYZ":

You must click the blue "Copy trackable link" button for the source you typed to be saved as one of the sources you track across your candidates. Copy the link, then go to the site you listed and create your opening with this link as the way for candidates to apply. Trakstar Hire will track their source for you via that link.
