LinkedIn Limited Listings Integration

Learn how to connect your TalentLyft account and your LinkedIn Company page to automatically post your jobs on LinkedIn

Updated this week

With our new integration with LinkedIn, you can now post jobs on LinkedIn as Limited Listings.

Limited Listings are free job posts gathered by LinkedIn from job boards and aggregators across the web, to create an easy job-seeking experience for LinkedIn members. Jobs are visible to candidates that are searching for jobs on LinkedIn or viewing your company’s LinkedIn Page.

What does this mean for you?

Every job that you publish from TalentLyft will automatically be visible on your LinkedIn company page and will be searchable by active candidates when they search for jobs on LinkedIn.
You only need to connect your LinkedIn company page with your TalentLyft account and your jobs will automatically be posted every time you switch their status to Published in TalentLyft.

Connecting your LinkedIn Company Page with your TalentLyft account

To enable this integration, you will need to copy your LinkedIn Company ID.

LinkedIn Limited Listings for Search and Staffing Agencies

Please note that LinkedIn reserves the right to categorize a company as search and staffing, and further reserves the right to require promotion of jobs.

If this happens, your job posts may no longer be visible on LinkedIn when they are ingested as Basic Jobs or Limited Listings from third-party sources such as TalentLyft.

Such companies or entities, that help other companies find and hire employees, would be required to promote their jobs in order to receive visibility.

FAQ

I have integrated LinkedIn with my TalentLyft account and shared a job to LinkedIn, why the job isn't visible?

Positions are syndicated to LinkedIn within 48 hours of being published. All job boards reserve the right to not display your job ad due to their own quality standards.

It's been 48 hours as I shared a job to LinkedIn and it's still not visible.

Please check the details shared with LinkedIn from Basic information section as the mentioned details should be exact in order for LinkedIn to recognize it (for ex. correct City is New York, instead of "NYC" as LinkedIn can not recognize abbreviation).

I have more applications visible in LinkedIn than in TalentLyft, why is that so?

As LinkedIn can not track applications apart from LinkedIn, there is a possibility that candidates click on Apply on LinkedIn, however they don't apply for the position through TalentLyft at the end.

What are the reasons that a Basic Job may not appear on LinkedIn?

There are several reasons why a Basic Job may not appear as defined on LinkedIn's FAQ:

  • LinkedIn Premium Job Post: The job is already posted as a paid job by the customer on their company Page.

  • Missing or Invalid fields: Jobs will not post if mandatory fields are blank or have invalid information.

  • Employer opt-out: Employer has opted out of job ingestion from any third-party site.

  • Spam Jobs: Jobs posted on LinkedIn may be selected to undergo our jobs review process and must meet our guidelines as part of our commitment to professionalism and integrity. If jobs do not meet the guidelines, they may be marked as spam.

  • In some cases, we may require certain types of jobs to be promoted on LinkedIn. Jobs that require promotion may include jobs that are reposted within a certain period, jobs by companies with generic names (such as “Confidential Company”), or jobs from search and staffing companies.
