To sponsor a job on Indeed, here is what you need to do:

STEP 1: Log in to your Workstream account. On the left menu, select Company > Integration. Configure the settings by enabling the section as shown in the image below

STEP 2: Enter your Account Indeed Email Address information then click the blue button Setup Indeed Employer Account to submit.

STEP 3: You will be redirected to another page to continue setting up your billing information.

Note: Indeed bills clients directly. If you have any questions about billing, please refer to your Indeed campaign dashboard or contact Indeed

After setting up everything, you will be redirected back to the Workstream page

STEP 4: After all account configuration and setup, it is now time for you to sponsor an ad!

4.1 Go to Positions, select a location. Choose the position then click the three-dotted line in the last column > Edit Position.

4.2 Click Job boards. Scroll the page down to Premium and look for Indeed Sponsored

STEP 5: Enable the button and a window will pop up to give you options for your sponsorship type

a. One-time with flexible start and end dates

b. Monthly recurring campaign charged at the cost you input

Also, with the new interface, you can now enter your preferred budget as low as $50 and enter the Target applicant count!

Note: The way Indeed bills you are to Pay per applicant / based on the target applicant count. (Note: This is based on Indeed’s algorithm and Workstream does not have control over how you determine this. If you have any questions about billing, please refer to your Indeed campaign dashboard or contact Indeed).

Lastly, if you decide to make some changes in your job posting while it is live on Indeed, changes won't trigger another billing, just click on the Update the campaign option. Also, if you wish to go directly to your Indeed dashboard to see data and analytics, click on the Open Indeed Dashboard for this option.
