How to Post a Job Listing on LinkedIn's Hiring Solutions Page
LinkedIn offers a Hiring Solutions page for companies to manage their job listings. Roll your mouse over the Jobs link on the top navigation bar on the home page, and choose Hiring Solutions from the drop-down menu that appears to see the Hiring Solutions home page. This is where you start the process of creating a job listing, reviewing the applicants you get, and paying LinkedIn to post the listing.
Roll your mouse over the Jobs link in the top navigation bar, and choose Post a Job from the drop-down menu that appears.
Start composing your job posting here.
Using the text boxes and lists provided, enter the required information about your company and the job you’re offering.
When it comes to your company, LinkedIn asks for your company name, its location, and the company URL (optional). As for the job posting itself, you’ll need to specify the job title, job type, experience level, function, industry, compensation (pay), and a referral bonus, if any.
When you’re done with that, you can scroll down and compose your job description in the text box provided or copy the description from another source and paste it into the box. Just make sure any formatting (like spacing, bullet points, font size, and so on) is correct after you paste the text.
Scroll down and fill in the Applicant Routing and Additional Information sections.
LinkedIn automatically offers you the ability to receive applications at one of your existing e-mail addresses, but you can decide which e-mail address should receive applications, or whether applicants should use a direct URL to apply to your job position.
Don’t overlook the Additional Information section, which you can use to add more requirements to the job.
Click the Continue button to proceed to the next step, Billing Verification.
LinkedIn will analyze your job listing and look for matches, but first, it will need your billing information. Even if you are using a pre-paid Job Credit, you’ll still need to have a credit card on file for verification purposes. Complete all the fields required and click the Buy Now button.
That’s it! You have completed the all-important first step: You posted your job listing. This listing will be available through LinkedIn’s Jobs Home page, which you can get to by rolling your mouse over the Jobs link (in the top navigation bar) and clicking Find Jobs.
Announce your job listing to your LinkedIn network members to spread the word about your job listing and see who they recommend.
You can pick from among these sources: Your LinkedIn News Feed, Twitter, any LinkedIn groups you belong to, or e-mail forwarding.
