Overview

The LinkedIn Apply is an app brought to you by Aotal.  This app allows organizations to be able to offer a very simple application experience for candidates who wish to use their LinkedIn profile as the basis of their application information.  This app only requires the candidates to provide their LinkedIn credentials, and agree to the related privacy policy(s) in order to submit an application.  As the application form is so short, no 'draft' applications are required.
