Appcast programmatic campaigns dynamically post your job ad across multiple job boards to reach your audience.
You provide your campaign details and a budget amount, and Appcast uses algorithms and data to automatically select job boards. Based on your budget and how the job ad is performing, Appcast adjusts when and where the ad is posted to optimize your ad's performance.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)
Which job boards does Appcast post to?
Appcast programmatic job ads use a proprietary algorithm to select job boards optimized for your job post recruitment goals. You may see the ad budget spent on popular job sites such as Indeed, Monster, and LinkedIn, or used on less conventional job boards like Lensa, Jobrapido, Diversity.com, and Juju.
How does Appcast determine which job boards to post ads on?
Appcast's AI-powered bidding uses massive data and natural language processing to optimize cost against volume to get you the right candidates for your job post.
How much should I spend in order to receive a strong pool of prospective candidates?
To create an Appcast programmatic job ad, you must spend a minimum of $200. For best results, we recommend you begin with at least $300.
How does Appcast spend my total allocated budget?
Once you select a budget amount to spend, Appcast uses that budget to purchase ads on various job boards, optimized based on their proprietary algorithm. This algorithm distributes these purchases in a way that optimizes high-quality candidate matches in the shortest amount of time.
Can I determine how long I want my campaign to last?
By default, campaigns last 30 days. Your campaign start date is the date you purchase the campaign.
Can I edit my campaign after it’s started?
Campaign details, including budget amount, cannot be changed after the campaign is purchased.
When a candidate applies using an Appcast job ad, they’re taken to a Greenhouse-hosted job post. Can I redirect them to my organization’s customized careers page instead?
No. By default, all candidates who apply using an Appcast programmatic ad are taken to a Greenhouse-hosted job post. The post includes the job description and all application questions you’ve configured.
