Sourcing is a big part of the recruiting process for both recruiters and hiring managers. Dover's Chrome extension allows users to source candidates directly from Linkedin into existing jobs on Dover! Dover will send outreach to those candidates.

If you already have the extension, please update or reinstall.

ℹ️ You can also access Recruiting Copilot in the Dover App.

  • Click Settings for any of your jobs

  • In the Overview, click Download Chrome extension in the Sourcing Extension card

Requirements for using Recruiting Copilot to source a candidate:

1️⃣ Recruiting Copilot is set up in your browser, and you have created & published an outreach campaign for the job in Dover.

2️⃣ If you aren't using Sourcing Autopilot, make sure you've authorized your own email address on the outreach campaign page.

3️⃣ A candidate email is needed to send outreach.

4️⃣ Be on a candidate’s public Linkedin profile.

How to Use Recruiting Copilot

1️⃣ In Chrome, navigate to a candidate's LinkedIn page

2️⃣ Click on the Dover logo which should surface on the right side of the page

Note: if you haven't used Recruiting Copilot since its most recent update (March 2023), you may need to allow the extension to access your downloads. Simply open the extension from the top toolbar in Chrome and follow the instructions to enable these permissions. Once you complete this please hard refresh the page (Ctrl/Cmd + shift + R).

It's also recommended to toggle "Auto Open" on in the extension's settings. This will ensure you don’t have to keep clicking to keep the extension open.

3️⃣ The Dover Extension will pop up & allow you to contact the candidate through Dover. To get candidate information to populate, please follow the prompt to download their LinkedIn info as a PDF.

If successful, the candidate's email address and key information will populate under Candidate Info:

If Dover does not have an email address for a candidate, outreach through Dover will not be possible. You will need to reach out to the candidate via LinkedIn.

4️⃣ Select a Job and Campaign on Dover from the dropdowns to match the candidate to the role

5️⃣ To send the candidate outreach right away, click Send Email. To modify the messaging the candidate will receive, click Edit Email, make any changes, then click Send.

✉️ Outreach emails will be sent as soon as possible within 24 hours.

ℹ️ After Sourcing, you can find your candidates in the Candidates view. You can also view all candidates queued for sourcing by clicking 📤 Outbox at the bottom of the extension pane.

How to Use Recruiting Copilot's AI Features

Recruiting Copilot also has AI capabilities to help you generate custom outreach for candidates!

Currently, this feature is only available if you are the person assigned as sending outreach in Dover. Soon, this will be available even if you aren't the email sender!

1️⃣ To start, click Settings at the bottom of the extension and select AI Email Assistant Settings and fill out the fields - this info will help Dover generate your outreach messages. Once you're ready, click Save:

2️⃣ Once this is set up, click Prospect, then fill out the fields. To parse the candidate's LinkedIn profile, click More on their profile then Save to PDF - the extension will automatically find the downloaded profile and parse it. Select the job and campaign. Once you're all set, click Generate AI email!

3️⃣ Another modal will pop up with the AI-generated outreach! Edit it to your liking, then hit Send. You can also copy & paste the outreach into InMail if you'd rather reach out on LinkedIn.


What happens if ‘Find Email’ doesn’t find an email and I don’t have the candidate's email?

Unfortunately, you won’t be able to source the candidate. Please reach out via LinkedIn or other means. Recruiting Copilot will let the user know if an email address is available.

If a candidate appears to be already sourced or in ATS, can you source them again?

No you cannot. If a candidate has already been emailed and contacted, you can view them in Source Candidate's page & Pipeline or in your ATS.

What if candidate outreach failed?

Dover was unable to successfully reach out to this candidate at this time. Please reach out via LinkedIn or other means.

Where does the candidate go after outreach has been sent?

Once you’ve sourced the candidate using the extension, Dover will email the candidate to see if they are interested. If they are, they’ll be surfaced in the Dover pipeline view and Slack. You can view candidates who are queued to receive outreach directly in the extension (click Outbox) or in your Candidates view in Dover.

How come ‘find email’ doesn’t let me see the full email?

Due to privacy concerns, we cannot display someone's full email via LinkedIn.

Can you share more about the extension's security settings? Is the extension able to read data other than LinkedIn profiles?

The Dover Extension is only active on LinkedIn pages. It does not have the ability to read data on other websites, nor can it see any other websites you're visiting. The data read by the extension is the LinkedIn profile page URL. We use that for email finding and for sourcing the candidate if you choose to reach out to them. If you're using the Extension to generate outreach content, the extension only reads the downloaded resume and not any of your other downloaded files.

Our philosophy is to use and collect the minimum amount of information to enhance your recruiting experience. We never share this data or use it outside the context of supporting you in making a hire!
