Any Questions?

Yes, there is no restriction regarding job industry and LinkedIn members encompass a range of sectors. However, as it is a more general directory typically more traditional job ads like those in Marketing or Sales often attract more candidates than those for technical roles or niche industries.

Yes, your job will be automatically posted to your LinkedIn company page if you have entered the link to your company profile in JOIN. To check that you have entered the correct link go to Company and then click on 'External Profiles'.

Anyone searching for jobs on LinkedIn can see your job postings. Your job post will automatically appear on your LinkedIn company page if you have entered the link to your company profile in JOIN. LinkedIn also uses multiple touch points to recommend your job ads to relevant candidates, some of which depend on the job seekers individual account settings. Your job posts therefore might be recommended to candidates via email and/or mobile push notifications or through the Jobs You May Be Interested in feature.

As many factors are at play, it’s not possible to determine how many applications your job posts will receive. The success of your job ads can be related to a number of influences, including how strong your employer brand is, the level of experience required for the job, the industry, the location, among other things. In some cases, however, it is not uncommon to receive a high volume of applications.

There are different possibilities for how long your paid job postings can be seen. For example, JOIN currently offers options including single postings for 7-day or 30-day terms, and 365-day slots for multiple jobs.
