How is Indeed different from other places where I can post jobs?
With our job search engine, job seekers get access to millions of jobs from all over the Web and employers reach relevant talent for every type of position. And you have complete flexibility – there are no contracts or long-term commitments.
What are Sponsored Jobs?
Sponsored Jobs appear in front of more job seekers in Indeed search results. When someone searches for a job on Indeed, Sponsored Jobs have higher visibility than free job listings. Sponsored Jobs are also 4.5x more likely to result in a hire.

How do I sponsor my jobs?
You can post a job directly on Indeed to sponsor it. After filling in your job description, enter how much you want to spend to make your job appear higher in the search results so that more relevant candidates will see it. You can change your budget or stop promoting your job any time.
You can also sponsor jobs from your career site or applicant tracking system. We’ll help you decide which jobs to promote and how to budget. Contact us to get started.
How many jobs should I sponsor?
We’ll help you prioritise the jobs you should sponsor by location, job title or industry.
Will the jobs I sponsor reach people on other sites?
Yes, Indeed’s publisher network includes thousands of partner sites consisting of job boards, business information sites, career expert sites, publishers, blogs and search engines.
Where does someone go after clicking on my job?
After a person clicks on your job on Indeed, they are taken directly to the job description on your career site so they can apply through your career site or applicant tracking system. If you don’t have a career site, you can post jobs directly on Indeed and receive applications by email. Manage all candidates within your Indeed dashboard. Review applications, schedule interviews and view recommended candidates.
How can I measure the results of advertising on Indeed?
Indeed makes it easy for customers to measure every aspect of their recruitment campaign. Our Client Services team can help you track campaign results in the environment that best suits your needs.
Which applicant tracking systems work with Indeed?
Many clients use applicant tracking systems (ATS) to manage online recruiting. For a full list of applicant tracking systems integrated with Indeed, visit the ATS Integrations page. If you don’t have an ATS, Indeed has technology available at no charge that will allow you to track applicants when advertising on our site. This technology is available for all clients that post jobs directly on Indeed.
How do I know where my Sponsored Jobs will appear?
When people search for jobs on Indeed, they enter keywords relevant to their interests and background. Your jobs will be displayed in search results when your job title, description, location and other information relates to the search terms entered. The most relevant job seekers will see your job information.

This placement means the most exposure for your jobs and helps attract more candidates.
What is included with Featured Employer status?
Indeed offers two Featured Employer options to help you hire. The first option includes the Featured Employer ad unit with your jobs, logo and company information, plus free Indeed Resume contacts.

What are Company Pages?
Indeed Company Pages include more than 600+ million employer ratings and reviews worldwide. On Company Pages, candidates can see what makes your company a great place to work and hear directly from current and former employees. Just as online reviews influence nearly every purchase decision made by today’s consumers, the same is true when researching prospective employers. Candidates who follow your Company Page will also get updates on new content and jobs as they become available, increasing engagement with your talent brand. Claim your Company Page today to tell your story, and encourage employees to add photos and reviews.
Why should I claim my Company Page?
You can raise the profile of your employment brand by sharing information on your mission, values and workplace. After claiming your page, encourage employees to write reviews and upload photos to attract potential new employees to your jobs. The feedback ratings from reviews will appear with search results on organic and Sponsored Jobs, encouraging job seekers to find out more about your job opportunities and culture.
How do I claim my Company Page?
All companies with jobs on Indeed have a Company Page. To claim and customise your Indeed Company Page, click on the “Business Owner?” link to get started. Claimed pages are marked as “Claimed Profile.” Once you claim your company page, you can customise your profile with a logo, company description, location, industry, links to your website and social profiles.
Who can edit my Company Page?
Once you claim your Company Page, you can customise your profile with a logo, company description, location, industry, links to your website and social profiles. If you want to claim a Company Page that has already been claimed, contact us.
Can I edit content in the reviews or forum sections?
Reviews are open forums and cannot be edited or moderated by the employer. We only remove a review if requested by the review author or if the review clearly violates our Content Guidelines. We encourage companies to engage reviewers by posting a comment directly on the review. Asking current and former employees to leave reviews is also an effective way to build a positive employer brand on Indeed.
What jobs appear on my Company Page?
Your Company Page will show all of your jobs currently listed on Indeed that meet quality guidelines.
