Source candidates

Allow your app or users to source candidates for a specific industry or vertical, and send those sourced candidates back to the ATS

1. Your customers access integrations

Your customer installs the integration that you’ve built through Merge. Merge begins syncing your customer’s data.

2. Display open roles for recruiters

Your product will display the open roles, for your customers to source for. Existing and open Jobs can be automatically pulled in via Merge, using the Jobs Object.

3. Start sourcing candidates

Recruiters begin sourcing candidates via LinkedIn or your existing database.

4. Send your sourced candidates to ATS

Once recruiters identify a candidate, you'll want to send those candidates and applications back to their ATS of choice.

  • Use the POST /Candidates endpoint.
  • If you’re allowing users to apply to a job through your platform, you can ingest their Application information and send it back to the third-party endpoint with POST /Application.
5. Prevent duplicate candidates

On subsequent updates, make sure to pull in GET /Candidates and related jobs from Merge, in order to identify duplicate candidates in the ATS.

You can get updates on the status of a job, such as it being closed, with Receiving and Emitting Webhooks
6. Understand your share of hire

Display your value to your customers by showing the share of hire, based on the number of candidates that have been successfully hired through your product.

  • Use the source, credited_to, and current_stage fields on the Applications Object to track the application as it moves through stages.
