Sponsored Job Pricing

Last Updated: Jul 14, 2015 03:41PM EDT
Indeed is a search engine for jobs, so all advertising is exclusively pay per click. There are no fixed rates or contracts and you don't pay anything upfront. Exactly how much you are charged is determined by your Maximum Cost Per Click (Max CPC),and job budget.
What is pay per click?
Advertising on Indeed differs from traditional job sites because you are paying for the performance of your jobs, not per posting.
  • Pay per click on Indeed means that you are charged each time a job seeker clicks on one of your Sponsored Job(s)
  • A click is when a job seeker views your complete job details

When you sponsor a job on Indeed, you can choose from two pricing options: Simple and Advanced.

  • Simple Pricing: Specify on average the amount per day you'd like to spend. You can change the amount, pause or close your job at any time
  • Advanced Pricing: Instead of paying a large amount up-front to post your job, choose a small amount you are willing to pay each time a job seeker clicks to view your job (the Maximum Cost Per Click or Max CPC)

More about Max Cost Per Click
Your Maximum Cost Per Click (Max CPC) influences how much visibility your jobs will receive on Indeed. Having a higher Max CPC could be the difference between being on the first page of Indeed's search results, as opposed to several pages back.

  • You choose your Max CPC and can change it at any time
  • You'll never be charged more than this amount per click

What is my job budget?
Your job budget is the most you are willing to spend to sponsor your job. The greater your job budget, the more potential applicants you will receive.

  • You choose your job budget and can change it at any time
  • You'll never be charged more than this amount per job

Example: If the max CPC is $1.00, and job budget is $150.00, at least 150 people can click on job before budget runs out.

Once you've decided on your job budget and Max CPC, you are ready to
start advertising on Indeed!

While the examples above are in USD, 
Indeed also supports the following currencies: EUR, GBP, CAD, AUD, CHF and JPY.

Please note, if you receive an advertising credit for free clicks for any reason, this will be reflected in your billing history in your account. An active credit will be applied to your Sponsored Job(s).
