Free Job Posts on Glassdoor and Indeed


Greenhouse Recruiting has integrations that can automatically create free job posts on Glassdoor and/or Indeed after setting your external job posts live. These can be configured at the bottom of each job post's edit page or when bulk editing external job posts: In this article we will cover how to:

Note: It can sometimes take up to 48 hours for new posts or updates to appear on Glassdoor and Indeed.


Enable Free Job Post on Single Job

To enable a free job post on Glassdoor and/or Indeed, click All Jobs from your navigation bar and select a job from the subsequent list.

From the Job Dashboard, click Job Setup and navigate to Job Posts on the left-hand panel.


Click the Edit icon edit.png beside the Job Post you would like to submit to Glassdoor and/or Indeed.


Optionally, navigate to the Publish to Free Job Boards section and select Glassdoor and/or Indeed. You will be prompted to provide a city that will be used to index the job.

Note: A location must be provided in order to publish a job post to Glassdoor and/or Indeed. This feature does not support remote or distributed positions as an option.


When finished, click Save. Once the job post is online, the job's information will be bundled up and sent over to Glassdoor and/or Indeed, where they use it to create your ads.

Note: Click the following links for questions on how Glassdoor and/or Indeed promotes your job posts. 

If the job post is later edited or taken offline, the free job board boxes next to Glassdoor and/or Indeed will be de-selected and the ads on these sites will also change to reflect the content and status of your job post in Greenhouse.


Refresh a Free Job Post on Glassdoor and/or Indeed

These sites can be a great resource for new candidates when your job posts first go online, but over time your ads become stale and are far less visible than newer posts.

Because Indeed and Glassdoor offer sponsored posts for better positioning on their site, it isn't possible to repost a job ad in Greenhouse to generate a new ad on Indeed or Glassdoor. Taking the post down and then reactivating it or closing and reopening the job will simply resurrect the stale job post from before rather than creating a new one. These sites also have filters that check for similar job titles and descriptions to hide duplicates, so creating a new job in order to generate a new ad is likely to fail as well.
