In addition to the free posting on GlassDoor and Indeed, you can post your job board to LinkedIn for free using LinkedIn Limited Listings. While these free ads won't show up as prominently as ads purchased directly through LinkedIn, they will hopefully expand your reach and allow you to access an additional subset of candidates at no additional cost to your organization.
Unlike other free external job boards, LinkedIn Limited Listings are handled at an organization level and these 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.

Turning on LinkedIn Limited Listings
Users with Site Admin permissions should click on the Configure icon from the Dashboard. Click on Job Board from the left-hand panel and select Edit next to the external job board.
From the Job Board editing page, navigate to the Turn on Limited Listings on LinkedIn section and click the circle next to Yes.
LinkedIn will attempt to match your company name with the correct company page on LinkedIn, but it is not always perfect. To ensure your ads always appear in the right place, please add your LinkedIn company ID in the field provided. You can find your company ID in the URL of your company page (e.g. linkedin.com/companyID).
Any candidates who apply through the link will be listed with the source LinkedIn Limited Listing.
Things to consider about LinkedIn Limited Listings:
- Limited listings only appear in search, after relevant LinkedIn Job Slots and Posts, and do not appear in the recommendations throughout the site (e.g., “Jobs You May Be Interested In” module and email, “Work With Us” ads, “Similar jobs” recommendations, etc.). This means that they are only visible to the subset of members who are actively looking for jobs.
- Posters are not able to manage limited listings in Recruiter (or online, through LI.com), meaning that they do not have access to Job Analytics, suggested matches (Suggested Professionals), people who have viewed the job, etc.
- Limited listings cannot be sponsored across the site.
