Share Your Opening with LinkedIn's Limited Listings

After you've created your opening in Hire, navigate to the Candidate Sources tab within the opening and then select Manage next to Job Boards.

This opens the list of job boards we are connected with. Click on the Free tab, then click on Post under LinkedIn.

You'll see this reflecting that the posting was successful.

Share Your Openings with LinkedIn Recruiter

LinkedIn's paid version of their site

From the opening, you'd like to share, click on the Candidate Sources tab.  The Job Application Link will be displayed.

Click on Share a trackable link to create a custom link with LinkedIn Recruiter.  This allows you to track incoming candidates and document their sources. 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.

From the Name of the candidate source, enter how you'd like to source to be saved.  If you have previously entered LinkedIn Recruiter, it will appear here, and you can select it from the drop-down.  Otherwise, enter it to add to your account.

Once this is set, copy the URL that appears.  You can do this by clicking the two rectangles next to the URL.
Use this link to create your LinkedIn opening as the application link.  Hire will track the source for you!
