Browser extension setup

One of the more popular options to source candidates are our browser extensions for Chrome and Firefox. They work with sites like LinkedIn, Monster, CareerBuilder and GitHub to speed up the sourcing process.

Installation

Using the Chrome or Firefox browsers, head over to our downloads page and click the Download button next to the browser you're currently using.

If using Chrome, you'll be brought to their extension web store. From here click the Add to Chrome button.

You'll then be prompted to grant permission so the extension can read the page you're on and send the information to CATS. To do this, click Add Extension.

If using Firefox, you may first see a pop up preventing the add-on from being installed. Click Allow to continue to the next step.

You'll then be prompted confirm you want to add the add-on. Click Install to complete the process.

Once installed, the CATS extension icon will be by other browser extensions to the right of the URL bar.

To activate the extension, click on the extension icon and fill out the form with your login information. Click Authenticate to finish the setup process.

Usage

When browsing any of the supported sites below, the extension will "Activate" by changing the icon to have a green plus icon within it. When you see this, click on the extension to have CATS parse the page you're viewing and turn it into a candidate or contact profile.

Click the Add to CATS button when ready to add the profile to your site.
