Apply for a job by attaching your LinkedIn profile

Posted By: Thomas Shaw, 12:04pm Tuesday 15 June 2010    Print Article

It was only a matter of time before Australian job boards start integrating with the LinkedIn API. We have discussed utilising the LinkedIn API a number of times previously.

When a candidate applies for a role. They can attach their LinkedIn profile by clicking on a button to authorise the job board to pull their profile contents into the application form (auto fill) or attach the candidates resume as PDF etc.

This kind of feature will become standard across all job boards over the coming years. You can view my implementation and also another example by Jobping below.




Once the user has authorised the website application, the users LinkedIn resume will attach to the application form.
