Featured Video Play Icon

While many of the open positions that job seekers find on Indeed have been collected from around the web by our search engine, employers can also post jobs directly on Indeed. Jobs posted on Indeed are accessible to candidates from both desktop computers and mobile devices and can appear in search results even if your company doesn’t have a career site. It’s easy to post a job in just a few steps.

When you click the “Post a Job” button at indeed.com/hire, you’ll be able to open an employer account, from which you can post a new job at any time.  When it’s time to post a job, be ready to:

Enter the details of your job

Add a clear, concise title and job description, as well as the location of your job. The job details you provide will help match your job to relevant job seeker searches, so check out these tips for creating clear titles and keyword-rich job descriptions. Finally, choose the email address where applicant resumes will be sent.

Specify job requirements

If your ideal candidate needs to have certain experience, credentials or skills, you can specify these with ‘Application Questions’. When applying, applicants will be asked if they meet the job requirements you’re looking for. Requirements can include location, years of specific experience, education level and language proficiency.

Choose to sponsor your job for extra visibility

Sponsored Jobs are paid job listings that receive more clicks and applications than jobs posted for free on Indeed. “Sponsoring” your job means applying a small budget to keep it prominently displayed in search results. If you choose to post your job for free, it will be most visible to job seekers for the first two or three days after posting. After that, your job will fall behind newer relevant search results and candidates will have to scroll farther back to find it. When setting a budget to sponsor your jobs, the ‘Apply Estimator’ tool will give you an idea of how many applications you can expect, based on the performance of jobs similar to yours. If you choose to sponsor your job, you will be prompted to add billing information.
