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 or off for every job that's currently live on your job board.

Retrieve your 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.

Follow the steps in this article to find your organization's LinkedIn ID.

Enable LinkedIn Limited Listings

To enable LinkedIn Limited Listings for a specific job board, click the Configure icon on your navgation bar.

Click Job Boards & Posts on the left.

Locate the job board where you wish to enable LinkedIn Limited Listings, and click the Ellipsis icon next to the job board. Click Edit Board Settings from the dropdown.

The Configure Job Boards page shows example job boards with Edit Board Settings highlighted in marigold on a job board dropdown menu

Scroll to the Turn on Limited Listings on LinkedIn section and click 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.

LinkedIn Limited Listings settings are shown on Greenhouse Recruiting with an example Company ID entered

When finished, click Save at the bottom of the page.

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
  • Industry
  • 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

There are some important distinctions between LinkedIn paid ads and LinkedIn Limited Listings on Greenhouse Recruiting.


LinkedIn Limited Listings only appear through LinkedIn's search after relevant paid LinkedIn Job Slots and Posts.

Additionally, 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.

Finally, Limited Listings cannot be sponsored across the LinkedIn site. If you are interested in flexible paid posts, please visit our documentation on LinkedIn Job Wrapping.


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. Consider Greenhouse Recruiting reports instead.

Job post locations

A location must be provided in order to publish a job post to free job boards (Glassdoor, Indeed, LinkedIn Limited), including for remote positions. Your job post will not save without a valid location entered, even with Remote checked.

An example job post configuration is shown on Greenhouse Recruiting with LinkedIn Limited Listings enabled, Remote checked, and an example location of New York, New York, United States

Pay ranges

If your job post doesn't include a pay range, LinkedIn may provide an estimated pay range for your job post. To avoid automatic salary estimates on third-party job boards, use Greenhouse Recruiting's pay transparency to add pay ranges to your job post.
