XML Feeds - Development Tools

The Project Plan describes different stages of Basic Jobs development and estimated timeline to help create project plans for Basic Jobs integration.

Project Plan

Building and integrating the XML feed involves development and testing efforts which can take anywhere between 2 - 8 weeks. We have created the project plan to help project managers and developers with the planning, timelines and help create checkpoints on different activities.

Below are the milestones definitions for Basic Jobs Integration Project Plan:

Time Milestone Description
One week Self-Serve access provided by LinkedIn Contact LL-BD@linkedin.com to request participation. Partner developers and project managers should review Basic Jobs documentation, align on requirements and discuss timelines with their LinkedIn Business Development contact to start development
1-4 Week Development Partners can reach out to the LinkedIn Business Development team to clarify their questions during the development phase. Once the XML feed is ready, share the link with the LinkedIn Business Development team for integration.
2-3 Weeks Testing & Certification LinkedIn Business Development team reviews the XML feed for schema and accuracy. They will provide feedback on changes required (if any). Once the changes have been incorporated and the integration is compliant, the partner is certified by LinkedIn
