iCIMS Launches LinkedIn Recruiter Integration

Data Connection

iCIMS rolled out an integration with LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect that provides workflow capabilities as well as connectivity, all with an eye toward increasing the productivity and efficiency of recruiters.

The company said the connector between iCIMS Recruit and LinkedIn Recruiter solves some of the most critical sourcing challenges employers face, such as repeated toggling between the different platforms, data discrepancies and duplicated efforts across multiple tools.

By using the integration, iCIMS claims, recruiters will save up to three hours of time each week (just by avoiding toggling—that seems like a lot of toggling), collaborate more efficiently and access candidate information that’s synced between the systems in real time.

In addition, LinkedIn Recruiter users will be able to export profile information directly into open jobs within the iCIMS environment, review past applicants who’ve previously used iCIMS and review their past applications and outcomes.

“We’re consistently listening to feedback from our customers and are confident that this integration will deliver a new level of productivity for those who heavily rely on sourcing candidates through LinkedIn,” said iCIMS CMO Susan Vitale.

iCIMS Integrations

Integrations seem to be high on the iCIMS priority list of late. In October, the company launched three suites that can be integrated with other systems or operate as standalone products. They included:

  • A Recruitment Marketing Suite designed to promote an employer’s brand and build candidate pipelines.  
  • An Advanced Communications Suite that includes the company’s TextRecruit product.
  • A Hiring Suite intended to improve efficiency through automation and integration. It includes iCIMS Recruit, iCIMS Offer and iCIMS Preboard.

When the suites were unveiled, iCIMS Chairman Colin Day said the portfolio would enable employers “to partner with iCIMS in various capacities so they can attract, select and hire the best talent for their organizations, faster.”

LinkedIn, too, has been actively hooking up. The iCIMS integration was initially announced at its Talent Connect conference in September, along with an integration with Oracle’s Taleo and several internal integrations meant to make LinkedIn’s talent solutions work together more seamlessly.
