Finding Someone’s Past Experience with Clay
In today's digital world, it's crucial to have comprehensive information at your fingertips. Utilizing LinkedIn integration tools can make this process seamless and efficient. This guide will walk you through how to add LinkedIn integration, enrich person details from LinkedIn profiles, and understand various aspects of the enriched profile.
Step 1: Adding LinkedIn Integration:
Begin by adding our new LinkedIn integration feature. It allows you to easily access a wealth of information from LinkedIn profiles and enrich your contacts' details. Here's how to do it:
• In the LinkedIn integration settings, find the option labeled "Enrich Person from LinkedIn Profile New".
• Click on this option to activate it.
• You will be prompted to insert the LinkedIn profile URL of the individual whose profile you wish to enrich.
• After entering the URL, click on "Save Changes".
Remember, these changes should apply to all your contacts. The total number should be displayed; in this example, it's 37.
Step 2: Understanding Current and Previous Experiences:
Once the LinkedIn integration is activated, you'll gain access to details about the individual's professional experience. The enriched data will show the individual's current and previous roles. For example, if we look at a profile, such as Julie's:
• Julie currently works as an SDR at Abstract.
• The integration tool allows us to see that this is a current role due to the listed start date (in this case, August 1st) with no specified end date.
• She is also an ambassador at Rev Genius, another current position, according to the profile.
Step 3: Identifying Past Experiences:
The integration tool also provides details about past roles. How can you tell? Look for an end date. The presence of an end date next to the experience denotes that it's a past role.
For example, if an experience shows an end date as '2022-08-01', this refers to a past role that the person held until August 2022.
Using LinkedIn integration tools effectively can significantly enhance the quality of information you can access about an individual's professional experiences. By understanding how to identify current and past roles, you'll be able to create a more comprehensive and useful profile for each contact. This feature offers a simple yet robust solution for enriching your contacts' details, ensuring you are always up-to-date with their professional endeavors.
