A disjointed and time-consuming hiring process can lead to missed opportunities, poor candidate experiences, and ultimately, the wrong hires. On the other hand, an efficient and streamlined hiring process — from sourcing, preliminary screening until onboarding — can help you attract the best talent, improve candidate experience and make better-informed hiring decisions.

1. Lever LinkedIn Integration: For Job Posts
Everybody knows LinkedIn is the largest professional networking site, making it a go-to destination for job seekers. The platform allows for targeting specific demographics, such as location, industry, and job title, which can help to increase the visibility of a job post to the right audience. With Lever’s integration with LinkedIn, you can seamlessly cross-share job openings. This feature can be set to automatically push all postings or can be chosen on a per-post basis. When a job posting is pushed to LinkedIn, you can view the date it was added, the number of applicants, and the percentage of applicants hired in the same section as the posting editor.
Pro tip: Note that LinkedIn will only display job postings from Lever that have been set up for external distribution. Postings that are unlisted, in draft form, or for internal use only will not appear in the LinkedIn job feed until they are made publicly available. To verify the distribution of a posting, go to the posting state menu at the top of the posting editor.
2. Hired: For Sourcing
With Lever’s integration with Hired, you can connect with a pre-screened selection of top-performing tech and sales candidates who are actively searching for new job opportunities. Using data from millions of profiles, Hired's algorithms identify the best candidates for your open positions, saving you up to 45 hours of sourcing time per hire. Hired's real-time information, equal opportunity, transparency, and efficiency help you build a diverse and talented team quickly.

Once the integration is active, job postings and opportunities will start to synchronize. Updates will be reflected on the opportunity as you schedule interviews through the Interview Planner.
4. Equip: For ATS Assessments
Within Lever, you can also take advantage of Equip's automated tests to identify your top candidates across multiple skills so you won’t waste time interviewing unsuitable prospects. Through this powerful ATS integration with Lever, HR teams can effortlessly send assessment invites to candidates via Lever. After completing the assessments, the results will be automatically updated on the candidate's Lever profile, allowing for efficient tracking and smart hiring.
When a candidate finishes an assessment, Equip automatically attaches a feedback form with the assessment results to the Lever opportunity. The feedback form includes a Lever rating, a summary of the candidate's scores, and a link to view the comprehensive assessment report on Equip. This report includes test results and a proctoring summary.
5. VidCruiter: For Video Interviews
VidCruiter is popular among HR professionals worldwide not only for its live video interview capability but also for its pre-recorded interviews that help eliminate scheduling conflicts and time zone issues for candidates and hiring teams by allowing them to participate at their own convenience.

In order to send candidates to VidCruiter, you simply need to move a candidate to the designated trigger stage on the candidate page or directly on the candidate profile in Lever. This action will automatically import the candidate into VidCruiter and the system will send an email with instructions for completing the VidCruiter interview.

9. Workload: For Team Collaboration
Workload is a tool that helps create and manage workspaces for different teams as well as in adding users from inside or outside your organization and managing third-party app connections.

Leveraging Lever and other HR tools in the market
Talent Acquisition is evolving by the second, and if your Applicant Tracking System (ATS) doesn’t sync with the platforms you need to perform your job better, then you’re losing a lot of opportunities. Integrations ensure that data is consistent and accurate across all systems, reducing the risk of errors and inconsistencies. Aside from saving time and increasing efficiency, it also allows HR teams to automate repetitive tasks, such as scheduling and communication, which improves the candidate experience.
With these Lever integrations, you can access a broader range of data, providing a more comprehensive view of the hiring process to make better-informed decisions.
