Do you consider LinkedIn when looking for professionals to fill a job position at your workplace or the right people who must be qualified [technically or professionally] for the job?
So, if you’re not looking on LinkedIn for the right people for your job opening, I strongly advise you to start. This is because LinkedIn is certified in this area and has been described as the best social network that focuses on professional networking and career development by many, including Business Insider.
Many people around the world use this platform to display their resumes, find jobs, and improve their professional reputation by posting updates and interacting with other industry people who will be found in your circle depending on how you set up your LinkedIn profile.
Many users use LinkedIn as a free portal to access the aforementioned services, but there is a subscription version known as LinkedIn Premium. This also includes extra features such as online classes and seminars, which will help you improve your curriculum vitae.
In this article, we’ll look at the best ways to post a job on LinkedIn for free or for a fee, as well as how the two differ.
HOW TO POST A JOB ON LINKEDIN.
- Visit the Linkedin website and sign in.
- Go to the job posting page.
- Enter the job description, and then screen your candidates.
To post a job on LinkedIn for free or paid, follow the steps outlined below.
- Go to LinkedIn.com, enter your information, and click sign in [if you are already using the platform, look through the menu bar at the top of the site and click on ‘job’.
- To begin the process, click the post a free job button.
- Fill in the blanks with the job title, company, job application, and employment type.
- Then, at the bottom of the page, click ‘Get Started For Free.’
The following page is what your applicants will see in your feed before applying for the job you’re posting. This page requires the job description as well as the necessary skills for the role. If LinkedIn already has your template for the job description, it will be imported automatically and all you will have to do is edit and put in what you expect.
- Consider your job description to be an advertisement for the position you are posting.
- Remove or add skills that will be automated to the skill list by clicking the ‘x’ icon next to each one or typing your required skill into the search box.
- Skip the ‘how did you hear about us’ box and instead click preview to see how your post will appear to your applicant.
- Then click continue to proceed to the next option, the applicant option.
- You can direct them to your website to continue and fill out their application form in the applicant option, or you can use email and LinkedIn for the job application process.
Applicants are being screened. Linkedin will automatically display screening questions to your applicants based on the job description you wrote; you can edit [add or remove] these questions to include the ones you prefer or remove the screening option entirely.
- Make sure to specify the screening questions [whether they will be required or preferred as an added value for the applicants].
- Then you must configure the email that will be sent to those of your applicants who will not be considered for the job. Make sure the auto-recheck box is checked for automatic rejection of those who will not qualify. NB: After 7 calendar days, the applicant will receive this email of rejection.
- When you’re finished, click ‘free job posting’ and you’re ready to go.
LinkedIn, on the other hand, would like to assist you by allowing you to promote your job for free and be at the top of all search results. This is where the paid option enters the picture. They provide this at any ad budget you choose, along with the estimated number of eligible applicants to whom Linkedln will present your post.
You can also include compensation in your application by informing applicants how they will be compensated. Simply check the box and enter the appropriate amounts. I hope you’ve learned the best way to post a job on Linkedin.
