In addition to free posting on Glassdoor and Indeed, your organization can post jobs on your job board to LinkedIn for free using LinkedIn Limited Listings. While these free job ads will not appear as prominently as ads purchased directly through LinkedIn's Paid Ads, they can help expand your reach and allow you to access more candidates at no additional cost to your organization.
Unlike other free external job boards such as Glassdoor or Indeed, which are enabled on a per-job basis through the Job Post Edit page, LinkedIn Limited Listings are handled at the organization level in Greenhouse Recruiting. LinkedIn Limited Listings posts will either be On/Off for every job that is currently live on your job board.

Note: In order for LinkedIn Limited Listings to function properly, every job post must be indexed to a city.
In this article we will cover:
Retrieve Organization's LinkedIn ID
Greenhouse Recruiting requires your organization's LinkedIn ID to post jobs using LinkedIn Limited Listings and have those job posts successfully attributed to your organization.
To retrieve your organization's LinkedIn ID, navigate to your organization's company LinkedIn page and click See all # employees on LinkedIn.
The subsequent page will list employees who work at your company. Navigate to the URL bar at the top of the page. Your organization's LinkedIn ID is the numeric string near the end of the URL. In both examples below, the organization's LinkedIn ID is 2582861.
If you are using Chrome as your web browser, your organization's LinkedIn ID will be nested between the quotation marks in the URL, as pictured below:
If you are using a web browser other than Chrome, your organization's LinkedIn ID likely will be nested between the percentage signs in the URL, as pictured below:
Copy your organization's LinkedIn ID to enter in Greenhouse Recruiting in the next step.
Enable LinkedIn Limited Listings
To enable LinkedIn Limited Listings for a specific job board, click the Configure icon in the upper right-hand corner of your Greenhouse Recruiting Dashboard. Click Job Boards from the left-hand panel.
On the Configure Job Boards page, locate the job board where you wish to enable LinkedIn Limited Listings, and click the Ellipsis icon inline with the job board name. Click Edit Board Settings from the dropdown menu.
On the Edit Your Job Board page, navigate to the Turn on Limited Listings on LinkedIn section and click the radio icon next to Yes. Paste your organization's LinkedIn ID in the Company ID field. This helps ensure your job posts on LinkedIn are associated with your organization correctly.
Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save when finished.
Any candidates who apply through a link on one of your LinkedIn Limited Listings posts will be added to Greenhouse Recruiting with the source LinkedIn Limited Listing.
Job Details in LinkedIn Limited Listings
LinkedIn uses an algorithm to review your job posts and generate a high-level Job Details section, which is displayed next to each of your Limited Listings posts. The Job Details section includes:
- Seniority Level
- Employment Type
- Job Functions
Job Details are auto-generated by LinkedIn and cannot be edited in Greenhouse Recruiting. If the Job Details added to one of your Limited Listings are incorrect, please reach out to LinkedIn Support to request the details be edited.
General Considerations for LinkedIn Limited Listings:
LinkedIn Limited Listings only appear through LinkedIn's search after relevant LinkedIn Job Slots and Posts.
Limited Listings do not appear in the recommendations throughout the LinkedIn site (e.g., Jobs You May Be Interested In module and email, Work With Us ads, Similar jobs recommendations, etc.). This means LinkedIn Limited Listings are visible only to the subset of LinkedIn members who are searching for jobs actively.
Greenhouse Recruiting users who post jobs through Greenhouse Recruiting won't have access to Job Analytics, suggested matches (Suggested Professionals), people who have viewed the job, and other LinkedIn data.
A location must be provided in order to publish a job post to free job boards (Glassdoor, Indeed, LinkedIn Limited). The LinkedIn Limited Listings feature does not support remote or distributed positions as an option.
Limited Listings cannot be sponsored across the LinkedIn site.
