How to post jobs on LinkedIn
Sharing your jobs on LinkedIn via HireHive is very easy and only requires a few clicks.
You have two options when sharing your jobs on LinkedIn.
Sharing your jobs with your LinkedIn network
The first one is free and consists of simply sharing your jobs on your LinkedIn company page or your own LinkedIn profile. If you have an important network with a good number of connections, this can be a great solution. As every time someone likes or comments on the post it is shared with their own network. This is a great way to reach a lot of specific people. It also gives the opportunity to other people from your company to share the job posting with their own network. You could receive applications really quickly, without spending anything!
You just need to click on the LinkedIn icon in the ‘Share Job’ section of the Job details page:
When clicking on the LinkedIn icon, you will be prompted to log into your LinkedIn account. You will then have to decide where you want to publish this job. Either on your own profile or on your company page. You also have the option to upload a custom image to the post directly from there:
Sharing your jobs using a paid LinkedIn job slot
The second possibility is to publish a paid job slot on LinkedIn. When adding a job on LinkedIn, you have two options on the job creation page. After submitting all the required information, you can decide how you want candidates to apply for this job. The first option is to let them apply via LinkedIn – on the job you will see the ‘Easy Apply’ button. The second option is to have candidates apply on a different website: this is what you want to use for HireHive, as it will allow you to gather all applications from LinkedIn in your HireHive account.
The link you need to use there to make sure that all applications are tracked in your account is the HireHive job link. You will find this in the Job Details page. When candidates click on the ‘Apply’ button on the LinkedIn job, they will be redirected to the HireHive application form.
