Linkedin Job Posting Cost

How much does it cost to post a job on LinkedIn?

The maximum LinkedIn job post cost per day is 1.3 times your daily pay-per-click budget. So, if you set your daily budget at $100, you could be charged $130 per day. With pay-per-click, once you set the budget, you only pay when users click your posting.

Does LinkedIn have a database of candidates available for employers?

Yes, LinkedIn has a massive database of candidates that you are able to access once you have registered and logged in. You can identify suitable candidates in the database through LinkedIn's highly targeted search capabilities.

Is there a standard cost to post jobs on LinkedIn?

No. Since all job advertising on LinkedIn is based on a pay-per-click model, there is no standard price. You set the amount that you want to bid for each click, a daily budget, and that will determine your cost.

Is there any way to track the applicants to my job post on LinkedIn?

Yes, LinkedIn has a Candidate Management feature that allows you to track all the applicants to your job post.

Does LinkedIn post jobs to other job boards?

Some job boards and other sites will syndicate your jobs or allow them to be aggregated on other job websites. At this time LinkedIn jobs do not get aggregated.

Can I post a job on LinkedIn for free?

No. At this time there is no posting jobs on LinkedIn for free, at least the traditional way. You can post information about a job in your timeline though. Many people also ask how much does it cost to post a job on LinkedIn. Because you pay per click and set your own budget, it can be very inexpensive to try, although the true cost should be measured by how much you have to spend to get a good candidate.

What sets LinkedIn job ads apart from posts on job boards?

One of the big differences is that people don't only go to LinkedIn to look for jobs. It's a place to connect with friends and colleagues, research businesses and potential clients, and catch up on industry news. LinkedIn job listings reach people that aren't necessarily looking for a job but may be interested in your position.

Can LinkedIn promote my job posts?

Yes, LinkedIn has a targeted job promotion feature that is available to employers.
