Adding a prospect’s complete LinkedIn profile
Download the person’s resume from LinkedIn (click on the 3 dots at the top right, then “Save to PDF”). Next, drag the file onto the Comeet Sourcing for Chrome window.
Note: When the person is added a profile is created and the first person in the hiring workflow is immediately notified to take action.
‘Discover’ is a way for you to find a prospect’s contact details as well as professional profiles (such as Github, StackOverflow, Behance) and social profiles (such as Twitter and Facebook). Comeet gets this information from publicly available sources.
Enable ‘Discover’ by going to your Company settings → Active search and clicking on “Enable” in the candidate’s Contact info tab.
Once enabled, the Discover button will appear under the prospect’s name after clicking on the Pencil icon (Edit).
Note: Upon enabling the Discover option, the company will be granted a Discover quota (limited amount of uses). The company quota is managed in Company settings → Active search with the option to increase the subscription plan as needed by contacting your Comeet Success manager.
When looking at a prospect that is an exact match to a candidate that already exists in Comeet, the position and current workflow stage will be displayed. Click Open to see candidate’s full profile in Comeet.
