LinkedIn Plans and Pricing:

1. Basic Posting Option.

LinkedIn features a basic job posting option that is free of charge. Interested employers and recruiters can simply click on the "Work" tiles to find "Post a job for free." This process can be completed in a few simple steps and includes posting your job vacancy to the general "Jobs" page on LinkedIn where anyone can view it. Users can also promote their jobs by setting a budget, selecting the pay-per-click option, or choosing dynamic pricing, which is based on the role being advertised.

2. LinkedIn Recruiter.

LinkedIn Recruiter is an advanced tool for searching LinkedIn profiles, organizing your findings, and getting in contact with candidates. It offers 150 InMails per user monthly, bulk InMailing, and advanced search options that include access to full profiles of all LinkedIn members. Interested employers can contact LinkedIn's sales team.

3. LinkedIn Recruiter Lite.

As the name implies, it is a scaled-down version of Recruiter. Lite offers one user and 30 InMails per month. Full profiles can be seen for 3rd-degree connections. It has fewer search parameters available than the full version. Interested employers can contact LinkedIn's sales team.

4. LinkedIn Pipeline Builder.

LinkedIn Pipeline Builder allows companies to market to LinkedIn members that fit their criteria through sponsored updates and ads. It also allows potential candidates to express interest in working at the company with a single click or tap. Contact LinkedIn for Pipeline Builder pricing.

5. LinkedIn Career Pages.

LinkedIn's career page cost is negotiated on a business by business basis. A career page is a section of an employer profile geared toward hiring. It allows more options for employer branding, including video, employee perspectives, and images. Companies can personalize job recommendations and other messaging based on member industry, position, and more.

6. LinkedIn Work with Us Ads.

LinkedIn's Work with Us Ads are display-style advertisements that LinkedIn users see in their profiles. They can be used to attract potential applicants and are targeted to your employees' LinkedIn networks. By using this feature, you're also able to block competitors from running ads in your employees' accounts. Contact LinkedIn for Work with Us Ads pricing.

FAQs:

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 $100.00, you could be charged $130.00 per day. With pay-per-click, once you set the budget, you only pay when users click your posting.

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.

How do I share my job posts on LinkedIn?

  1. Go to your LinkedIn account home page.
  2. Click on the Jobs icon at the top right.
  3. Click on "Manage Job Postings."
  4. Click on the title of the job you want to share.
  5. Go to the "Actions For This Job" box and click on "Share."
  6. Select your preferred sharing option and share away.

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?

Yes, LinkedIn has a "Post a job for free" option that can be found on your LinkedIn home page.

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. For additional ways to boost your job posts, you can check out our guide to social media recruiting and Facebook recruiting.

How do I post a job on LinkedIn outside the United States?

LinkedIn makes this really simple. Just type in the name of the location where you need to post during the posting process, and LinkedIn will let you know if it allows job postings there.

How can I post a job on LinkedIn company page for my business?

Make sure that when you post the job, you select the company name of the company whose page you want the post to appear on at the beginning of the process.

When is the best time to post a job on LinkedIn?

Ideally, you should post your job four months before the start date. This will give you sufficient time to screen and interview candidates, and enable a seamless recruitment and onboarding process.
