We have partnered with Indeed.com to provide greater visibility for your job posts, and so that you can reach a larger pool of potential applicants.
By using sponsored jobs, the listings will remain prominent in search results, and should generate an increase in approximately three times the amount of traffic you would receive with manual free search listings.
You also have the option of controlling the visibility of your listings by managing your budget, which will in turn maintain the prominence of the job posting.
How to connect your Indeed Account
You must first create an employer account on Indeed.com.
After you have done so, you have two options for sponsoring jobs within our system on Indeed.
You may either connect directly from the Jobs page, or you may configure your account through Administration – Integrations .
To sponsor a specific job from the Jobs screen, select Jobs on the left menu, and then choose a specific position that has a status of “Posted .”
On the right, under Premium Job Boards, where it refers to Indeed, select Connect.
You will then need to connect to your Indeed account.
This will take you to a page on Indeed.com where you will need to connect to your account
You will be prompted with a message stating that you will need to provide access to:
- Your email address
- Your Indeed employer account
- View and manage your Indeed campaigns
- View all of your employers
- Maintain the permissions you have been given
Select Allow .
Next, choose the employer account that you wish to connect .
Connect your Job Postings to Indeed
You will then be brought back to the Integrations page on the site, to view your existing campaigns. No campaigns will show until you sponsor a job.
Underneath Campaigns under Jobs, you will see all of the Jobs that are currently live.
To list a job on Indeed, click on the Sponsor button. (You may also see the same Sponsor button on the individual job page).
You will see a screen where you need to verify the Job source (selected from the drop-down), give your campaign a name, and specify the campaign type, which is either fixed duration or monthly.
Specify the budget for how much you wish to spend on the campaign.
If it Is for a fixed duration of time, you will need to specify the start date and the end date of the campaign.
Choose whether you wish to enable “Indeed Apply.” This will enable users to apply with their Indeed credentials, and may increase the number of applications, however it will bypass any screening questions you may have created. If you wish to limit your applications to those who have been screened, leave this off.
When you are ready, select Create Campaign, and the campaign will show on the Integrations page under Campaigns.
For jobs that are newly created, you will see a message stating “Campaign Creation in Progress.” At this point, the job is being indexed by Indeed, and may take up to 24 hours to complete. If the job was posted previously, the campaign creation will be instantaneous.
Once it has completed this process, you will be able to see the number of clicks into the job posting, applications, average cost per application (CPA), and access to edit the listing (e.g., to add to the budget of the campaign).
