In addition to the 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 ads will not appear as prominently as ads purchased directly through LinkedIn's Paid Ads, 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 like Glassdoor or Indeed, LinkedIn Limited Listings are handled at an organization level in Greenhouse Recruiting 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.

Retrieve Organization's LinkedIn ID
Greenhouse Recruiting requires your organization's LinkedIn ID in order to post jobs to LinkedIn using LinkedIn Limited Listings and have those job post successfully attributed to your organization.
To retrieve your organization's LinkedIn ID, navigate to your organization's company page and click See all # employees on LinkedIn.
The subsequent page will list employees who work at the company. Navigate to the URL bar at the top of the page.
Your organization's LinkedIn ID are the numbers nested between the quotation marks in the URL. In the below example, the organization LinkedIn ID is 2582861.
Copy the organization LinkedIn ID.
Enable LinkedIn Limited Listings
To enable LinkedIn Limited Listings on a specific job board, click the Configure icon in the upper right-hand corner. Click on Job Board from the left-hand panel.
Select an external job board from the subsequent list and click the ellipsis in the same row. Click Edit from the dropdown menu.
From the Edit Your Job Board page, navigate to the Turn on Limited Listings on LinkedIn section and click the circle next to Yes.
To ensure your ads are associated with your organization, paste your organization's LinkedIn ID in the provided field.
Any candidates who apply through the link will be listed with the source LinkedIn Limited Listing.
Job Details in Linkedin Limited Listings
LinkedIn uses an algorithm to review your job posts and generate high-level Job Details which are displayed next to your Limited Listings post. Job Details include:
- 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 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.
Greenhouse users who post jobs are not able to manage Limited Listings in Recruiter (or online, through LI.com), which means 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.
