Hireology offers you the ability to sponsor your open roles with Indeed directly from the Hireology platform. By sponsoring with the world’s largest job board, you will be able to connect with millions of job seekers to help build an applicant pipeline and fill your open positions. Read below on how to sponsor your jobs with Indeed and best ways to get started with this feature.
All customers are able to order a 14 day, $499 or $299 sponsored post on Indeed through Hireology. This is a cost per click model, so a higher cost gives you the potential for more visibility each day. If you need a refresher on how to complete this within the app, see ‘Sponsoring a Job’ article.
It is important to note that you can use this sponsorship integration even if you do not have an Indeed account or representative. However, if you are currently sponsoring the open role directly with Indeed, you would need to wait until that sponsorship has expired to sponsor the same job via our integration.
Managing your Sponsorship
Once you have purchased a sponsored post with Indeed, your job will be distributed within 24 hours. However, there are certain factors that may cause your job from not being distributed. Please read below to ensure you are following Indeed’s search quality standards.
Job Titles Indeed may flag and halt distribution of individual job postings if job titles contain language that indicates it does not represent a real and currently available job. One example of expressly forbidden naming in a job title would be the language "Eligibility Pool."
Job Descriptions Indeed may flag and not distribute an individual job posting if the job description contains language with the requirement to pass a background check - which is illegal in some states. Instead, when posting a job that has a background check in the job description, update the language to require “consenting to a background check.”
Job Age A job must be active and not-expired during the full duration of the sponsorship.
Missing Location Data As a best practice, verify that all location fields (city and state) are accurate and not concatenated.
Missing Salary If your job is located in either Colorado or New York and that information is not in the job description, it will be barred from distribution. Salary ranges are acceptable. As a best practice, please denote whether the pay details are hourly/annual.
Duplicate Jobs As stated above, please ensure that the job you are choosing to sponsor with Indeed within Hireology is not already being sponsored with Indeed directly.
Viewing Applicant Data
Once your sponsored job has been posted to Indeed, applicants will be marked with the source of ‘Indeed_Sponsored’ within Hireology. If you are interested in the exact total of applicants from the sponsored listing, please contact your Customer Success Manager for a monthly report.
