We really enjoyed the partnership between The Resumator‘s powerful hiring software and Indeed.com’s job site, which happens to be #1 in the world. Our subscribers got $200 to sponsor their jobs after all. But what did that mean?
We visited Indeed.com and stole a few of their helpful FAQs to better explain things. 

What are Sponsored Jobs?

Sponsored Jobs are the first jobs people see in Indeed’s search results. When someone performs a job search on Indeed, Sponsored Jobs are highlighted in search results to gain maximum visibility with relevant job seekers. Sponsored Jobs maintain their prominent visibility at the top of search results, increasing traffic to your jobs by up to 500%.

Why should I advertise my jobs on Indeed if my company’s jobs can be included for free?

Sponsored Jobs on Indeed receive up to 5 times more clicks than organic jobs. While organic, or “free”, jobs naturally fall back in search results over time, Sponsored Jobs maintain their superior placement to continue to produce qualified applicants.

Will the jobs I sponsor reach people on other sites?

Yes, Indeed’s publisher network includes over 25,000 partner sites consisting of job boards, business information sites, career expert sites, publishers, blogs, and search engines. Our extensive partner network, including sites like Bloomberg.com, USNews.com, AARP.org and About.com, ensures that your jobs reach the largest possible audience of both passive and active job candidates.

Where does someone go after clicking on my job?

After a person clicks on your job in Indeed’s search results they are taken directly to that job posting on your site so they can learn more about your company and directly apply through your site. If you don’t have a career site, you can post jobs directly to our search engine and receive applicants by email.

What applicant tracking systems work with Indeed?

Many of our clients use applicant tracking systems to manage online recruiting.
