Hiring a product growth specialist?

Or maybe a content marketing manager?

If you’re a recruiter and your company is actively hiring, then you can post an online job on LinkedIn on behalf of your company. 

But if you don’t use LinkedIn much and if it’s your first time posting a new job on LinkedIn, you may find yourself confused.

Well – don’t be. 

Throughout this blog post, I’ll show you how to post a new job on LinkedIn, helping you ensure that you can get your job postings up and running within no time.

Let’s start.

How to Post a New Job on LinkedIn

To post a new job on LinkedIn, recruiters need to click on the “Jobs” section, select the “Post a Job” button, and fill in the details like Job Title, Company, Workplace Type, Job Location, Employment type, and more. Next, they need to field in other sections on the Application Options page, and if they’d like – they can promote the job posting.

To help you better understand how to post a new job on LinkedIn, follow these exact steps:

  • Click on “Post a Free Job” Under the “Jobs” Section
  • Fill in the Job Details
  • Fill in the Application Options Section

Click on “Post a Free Job” Under the “Jobs” Section

To post a new job on LinkedIn, the first step is to head over to www.linkedin.com and log in to your account, if you aren’t already logged in. You can post a job from your Android or iOS devices as well. If you are looking forward to posting a job from your mobile, you can just launch your mobile application and log in to your LinkedIn account, if you aren’t already logged in.

The next step is to click on the “Jobs” section in the top navigator bar. On mobile, you’ll see it in the bottom-right corner. Under “Jobs,” click on “Post a Free Job,” as shown in the screenshot.

If you haven’t posted a job on LinkedIn before, you’ll be asked to log in to your LinkedIn. If you are a recruiter customer on LinkedIn, then you’ll be redirected to a page with numerous contract options that you are affiliated with.

Fill in the Job Details

Now, LinkedIn will ask you to fill in job details with the following fields:

  • Job Title
  • Company
  • Workplace Type – On-Site, Hybrid, Remote
  • Job Location
  • Employment Type – Full-Time, Part-Time, Contract, Temporary, Volunteer, Internship
Submit Job Description on LinkedIn

Next, as you click “Get Started,” LinkedIn will ask you to fill in the job description. Make sure that you fill in a detailed job description so that the candidates can get as much information as possible. 

Also, you can add the skills required. And once you fill in the details, you can preview to see what the job posting would look like. Click on “Continue,” and you’ll switch to the “Applicant Options” section.

Fill in the Application Options Section

Now, under the applicant Options section, LinkedIn will ask you:

  • How would you like to receive the applications?
  • Add screening questions

Under “How would you like to receive the applications,” you can choose between “Email” and “Website.” Depending on your preference, you can add either of the two.

Also, you can add screening questions to get your hands on as much information as you possibly can. 

Note – If you are receiving applications on your external website, you’ll be unable to add screening questions. 

Select “Preview” to review the job posting before publishing.

And if you think the job posting looks perfect, click on “Post job for free.”

If you want to post on behalf of a company, LinkedIn requires you to your company’s email address. Make sure that you have it.

You can also promote the job for more reach. When you’re done, select “Post Job” to post the job on LinkedIn. 

Congratulations! You have posted your first job posting on LinkedIn.
