LinkedIn Limited Listings

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.

Turning on LinkedIn Limited Listings

Users with Site Admin permissions should click on the Configure tab 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.

    Hi Matt,

    I've updated the article with some language from LinkedIn's help center regarding the difference between Limited Listings and other types of posts. It appears that the jobs will only be visible via searches and only partly linked to your company page. As you can see in the listing below, it is actually matched up with Greenhouse Software, but when you view all the open jobs at Greenhouse, these free listings won't show up.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions!

    Thanks,

    Does Linkedin pick up these jobs off an xml feed from Greenhouse?

    There are some jobs we would not like to appear as linkedin limited listings. Is it possible to turn it off for some jobs? From the article, I assume not.. but would like to double check. If they can't be turned off for some listings, is this in the product roadmap?

    Hi Elizabeth,

    It's all or nothing! There's no way to have it on for some jobs and off for others.

    Best,

    Thanks for confirming Jeffrey. Do you think there will be an option to tick a box in the future on the job ad, much like there is for Glassdoor, Indeed, etc?

    At this time, we do not plan to make limited listings configurable on a per job basis.

    Best,

    With the linked in limited listings, how are the Experience field and Job Function field decided, when displayed through Linked In? Presumably someone @linked in is deciding this, but we have had inaccurate postings, with team lead roles being advertised at Associate level for example.

    How can this information be corrected?
