How do I set up Lever’s Apply with LinkedIn integration?

Available for User roles All users. Can only be configured by Super Admins
Packages Select Lever packages

Please note:  Apply with LinkedIn requires a LinkedIn Recruiter contract (Corporate edition), and it requires LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect to be enabled (see article here). 

Lever’s integration with Apply with LinkedIn allows candidate to fill out your job applications using their LinkedIn profile data with just a click of a button. Candidates won’t need to sign in to LinkedIn for each application, and you’ll receive a link to their LinkedIn profile within Lever.

Link your LinkedIn contract at Settings > Integrations and API

At the top of the page, you’ll see a row and toggle for ‘LinkedIn - Apply with LinkedIn’. Click the toggle to open the row, and click ‘Begin Setup’ to get started:


Next, you’ll be brought to select which LinkedIn contract to link with Lever. If, like most companies, you only have one contract, it will be automatically selected. Otherwise, simply click ‘Continue’ next to the appropriate contract to select it. Then, click ‘Request’.

Please note: You need to setup RSC to utilize Apply with LinkedIn, and you do need a Recruiter contract or active job slots.

You’ll then be brought to a success message - simply click ‘Go Back’ to resume setup where you may see the option to click ‘Notify Partner’. For some customers this step will automatically get skipped.

After this, you will then see the same success message - click ‘Go back’ again to resume setup. The next step is to start the historical sync. Simply click ‘Begin sync’ and, depending on the number of postings in your account, the sync can take up to 15 minutes.

Add AWLI to your application form at Settings > Job Site > Application form

Once the sync in completed, you’ll want to make sure you’ve added AWLI to your application form:


You can click the button to go to Job Site Settings, or navigate to this page at any time: under ‘Personal Information’, simply click the link for ‘+ Apply with LinkedIn.


This will automatically add the ‘Apply with LinkedIn’ button experience to your job postings as the first question. It is not possible to make this question required. Note: In order for this to be properly added to your application form, please make sure to save your changes by using the "Save changes" button at the top right of the page.


Once completed, you’ll see the following under the toggle:


If you don't check the box, your candidates will see:


After you check this box, the text next to the “Apply with LinkedIn” button will update and appear like this:
