Using the Beamery Extension

Last Updated:

The Beamery Extension is a powerful sourcing tool that allows you to add new candidates to your CRM and make updates to existing candidate profiles directly from web pages and social media profiles.

Incorporating the Beamery Extension into your candidate sourcing process allows you to quickly and easily add a candidate’s contact information, education, experience, resume, and more to Beamery as soon as you find it, without ever leaving their social profile. 

Using the Beamery Extension automates the manual contact creation process and can save you a lot of time - freeing you up to focus on core sourcing activities. When using the Beamery Extension, you can add candidates to Pools, apply Global Tags, and add them to Campaigns right from the Extension. What this means is you can begin nurturing relationships with candidates as soon as you find their profiles.

Getting to Know the Beamery Extension

The Beamery Extension can be used over most web pages and social profiles to add candidate profiles to Beamery, or update existing Beamery profiles. The Beamery Extension can be used on the public version of LinkedIn, LinkedIn Recruiter Lite and LinkedIn Recruiter. This means that you can view existing contacts and add new contacts when using LinkedIn Recruiter. However, LinkedIn Campaigns are not supported by the Beamery extension. 

Using the Beamery Extension in Chrome

To get started, make sure you've downloaded the Beamery Extension here. Once installed, open the extension over a webpage, click the Beamery Icon in your Chrome taskbar. Note that to use the Beamery Chrome Extension, you will need to be logged into the Beamery app.


The Extension can be closed by clicking this icon again, but note that you do not need to close the Extension as you move from one social profile to another. The extension will reload automatically on most social sites, including public LinkedIn, but you may need to re-open the extension when using LinkedIn Recruiter Lite.  

Creating Profiles with the Beamery Extension

When you land on a social media profile of a person who you would like to create a profile for, the Extension will first let you know if the person already exists in your database. If they do not, you will see the Create contact screen and the extension will auto populate the contact’s first and last name (1) to get you started. Then, enter the contact’s email address (2)  if you have it, or Beamery’s Extension will search publicly available data to help generate the email address once you create the contact. You’ll also have a field to upload a contact’s resume to their profile (3).


Next, you have some sourcing tools available. You’ll find easy access to log an activity (5), or automatically add a contact to Pools (6). Below your organization may allow you to add a contact directly to a vacancy (7). Then you’ll have a place to set the value for your custom fields (8). You can also set a Global Status, assign a source for the contact, or add any Global tags (9). Finally, at the bottom, you’ll find a setting to assign this contact to another user, or keep it defaulted to yourself (10). Once you’ve finished picking your settings, click Create contact (11) to load the contact into your database. And, when you're ready to start on a new project, click Reset (4) at the top of the Sourcing Settings to clear all fields (except for Source). 



Autologging LinkedIn Inmail


When you send a message in Linkedin using the Breamery Extension, Beamery automatically makes a record of the communication and saves it to the contact record in Beamery. 


Viewing Existing Profiles with the Beamery Extension

Once you have created a profile using the extension, or if you come across a profile that already exists in Beamery while browsing candidates on social media, you will see the Extension Profile for this candidate. Note that if the social URL isn't present on the existing profile in Beamery, the Chrome Extension won't be able to recognize an existing contact when revisiting their social page.

  5. Do not contact - The candidate has been flagged as ‘do not contact’ and will be blocked from receiving any direct or campaign messages.
