Once installed, the Gem extension can open on top of any website that you visit if you click on the Gem icon in your Google Chrome toolbar. This documentation outlines how you can use Gem on all, as well as sourcing websites that we've found to be popular amongst our customer base.

All Websites (Manual Entry)

From any webpage:

  1. Click the Gem Chrome extension in the upper-right corner of your Chrome window to open the extension.
  2. Click "Add Candidate".
  3. Manually create a new Gem profile for them. (This requires you to enter the first name, last name, email address, etc.)

LinkedIn

Detailed steps can be found in this article, but in summary:

  1. By default, the Gem extension will open automatically when you are viewing a candidate's LinkedIn Public, Recruiter, or Recruiter Lite profile. If it does not, click the Gem Chrome extension in the upper-right corner of your Chrome window to open the extension.
  2. Follow these steps and save the candidate's profile as a PDF.
  3. Gem will create a profile for the candidate and parse the PDF for their details (name, title, company, etc.) These information will automatically be added to their profile in the Gem extension.

Facebook

Adding profiles from Facebook automatically pulls (when available):

  • Name
  • Location
  • Gender
  • Emails
  • Profiles
  • Phone number
  • Work info
  • Education history
  1. Click the Gem Chrome extension in the upper-right corner of your Chrome window to open the extension.
  2. While viewing the candidate's profile, click "Add Prospect" in the Gem extension.

GitHub

While on a GitHub profile page:

  1. By default, the Gem extension will open automatically when you are viewing a candidate's GitHub profile. If it does not, click the Gem Chrome extension in the upper-right corner of your Chrome window to open the extension.
  2. Gem will use the URL of the GitHub profile page that you're on to search for any matches/duplicates that already exist in Gem. If one is found, their details will populate in the extension. If there are multiple possible matches, we'll show you a list of all of them to click into and view more details.
  3. If the candidate does not exist in Gem yet, click "Add Candidate". Gem will automatically create a Gem profile for them and parse fields on the GitHub page (name, email address, company, etc.) to fill in these fields for you within the Gem extension.

SeekOut

While on a SeekOut project page or viewing search results:

  1. Click the Gem Chrome extension in the upper-right corner of your Chrome window to open the extension.
  2. If you use SeekOut "Contact Credits" to find emails and phone numbers, you need to press the "Get Email" and/or "Get Phone" buttons in SeekOut prior to adding the candidate to Gem if you wish for this information to be imported. (If you do not do this, Gem will use the candidate's LinkedIn URL to find their email address using Gem's own data providers.)
  3. Click "Add to Gem" next to the name of the candidate. This will use a SeekOut "Export Credit".
  4. Gem will create a profile for the candidate and their details (name, email, company, etc.) will automatically be added in the Gem extension.

Twitter

  • Name
  • Location
