With the integration of your TalentLyft account and Indeed, you can publish jobs to Indeed directly from the TalentLyft app. This applies for both free and sponsored job ads on Indeed.

Free job advertising on Indeed

By default, publishing a job in TalentLyft will automatically post it to Indeed as a free job ad. This will only be done for the countries supported by Indeed. The list of these countries can be found here.

You can opt out of this by going to Profile - Integrations - Free Job Advertising Settings.

Please note that by disabling Indeed, all of your published jobs will automatically be unpublished from Indeed immediately. Additionally, you won't be able to publish any new jobs to Indeed unless you opt in again. 

Repeat the process if you want to opt in to automatic publishing on Indeed again.

When publishing a job on free job boards, there is no Publish button for Indeed. This is because all jobs are automatically published and you can only manage your automatic publishing in Free Job Advertising Settings, as described earlier.

To place sponsored job ads on Indeed via TalentLyft, first go to Profile - Integrations - Indeed Settings.

A new window will open where you can Enable or Disable Indeed Apply button with the slider in the top right corner. 

Indeed Apply button is Enabled by default. This means that the candidates will apply via application form displayed on the Indeed page.

If you disable Indeed Apply button, the candidates will be redirected from Indeed to your TalentLyft job ad when they click Apply button on the Indeed page.

In the space below, you need to insert your Indeed advertiser email and phone number.

If you have an Indeed advertiser account, jobs you choose to sponsor will automatically be connected to it based on the email address you provide

In case that you don't have an Indeed advertiser account, Indeed will contact you to set one up as soon as you sponsor your first job.

When you get to the Promote step of creating a job, you will find sponsored Indeed ads in the Premium job boards.

By clicking on the grey "i" icon in the upper right corner of the Indeed section, you will find more information on the sponsored Indeed advertising.

It is important that you understand the pricing model for this feature. You will only be billed for the unique clicks on your job, and if you remove the job from TalentLyft, the sponsored campaign will stop.

Once Indeed gets your Sponsored Job from TalentLyft, and your account is activated, your Sponsored Job campaign will be live within a few hours.

Each sponsored Indeed job post has its Pay Per Click (PPC) budget. Every time someone clicks on your job post, a part of that budget is used. When all of your budget is used up, the post will no longer be sponsored. 

Fill out the Additional information for Job Boards, if you haven't done this previously in the Job details step. If you haven't entered your Indeed advertiser email in the Integrations, you can also do it here.

Now you are set to order a sponsored job ad on Indeed. Select your budget ($150, $300 or $450) and click on the Shopping cart in the bottom right corner of your screen.

You will notice that your Total is $0.00. This is because all sponsored Indeed job ads are charged by Indeed directly, through your Indeed advertiser account, and not through TalentLyft credits.

Click on the Buy button to confirm your order and send it to Indeed.

Indeed's 'one-source' policy

If you were posting your job ads on Indeed before using TalentLyft, they will not allow you to post to Indeed through TalentLyft by default to prevent job ad duplicates. To enable posting through TalentLyft, you need to contact their team and ask them to make TalentLyft your primary posting source on Indeed.

TalentLyft cannot do this for you due to Indeed's policy. They will only help employers, so you need to contact them yourself. To do that, you can use the contact form here or log in to your Indeed employer account and click "Need Help?" at the top of the page. You can use the template below to make this request.

I am a client of TalentLyft, an ATS that is integrated with Indeed, and my jobs are included in their comprehensive XML feed. I would like TalentLyft to be my primary posting source. I need a CS rep to review my jobs to determine if they are suitable for organic visibility per Indeed’s Quality Standards.
