1.What are LinkedIn Basic Jobs?
LinkedIn Premium Jobs and LinkedIn Basic Jobs are on the surface exactly the same in the way that they appear on LinkedIn. However, there is a difference in the way they are exposed to the users.
When you use Basic Jobs you make all your job postings visible on LinkedIn which improves your Employer Brand. The user will always have the option of searching up to find your job postings on the LinkedIn Jobsite.
This way you keep your LinkedIn Jobsite up to date with your newest job postings, which means that relevant candidates can stay updated and apply to your postings.
Premium Jobs will only be exposed to the candidates that somehow have a profile that fits the employee you are searching for based on competences, educational background, geography and engagement. This tool is good at reaching passive jobseekers, and can be especially useful if you are located in an area where recruitment can be a challenge. For this reason, Premium Jobs are more expensive.
2. How can I benefit from LinkedIn Basic Jobs?
You benefit from Basic Jobs by always keeping your employer account up to date with all the exciting job postings you can find on your career site. They will also appear on the LinkedIn Job site which means that the postings will appear when a potential candidate is searching for the posting or your company specifically.
All this is done automatically, so you will not have to keep multiple sites up to date.
3. What does it look like?
LinkedIn Basic Jobs appear under the tab Jobs on your company site as well as in the job section of LinkedIn. The contents are taken directly from your job posting, and when you click on search it will appear directly on your career site.
Under ‘recently posted jobs’ it will look like this on your LinkedIn page.
This is what it will look like when a candidate click on your job posting to see more:
4. How do I get started?
This is easy. All you have to do is reach out to HR-ON Support and ask them to activate this option as an additional purchase for your current subscription. Get started today by contacting support here via email email@example.com or by calling us on this number +4571990766.
Once the integration is complete you do not have to do any further. New job postings will automatically be sent to your LinkedIn and published on the LinkedIn job site. If you remove a job posting, it will also disappear from LinkedIn.
5. What is the cost of LinkedIn Basic Jobs?
The price is based on the amount of Job Slots, the number of job postings, that are online on your career site.
Up to 10 Job Slots for 6000 kr/pr year
Up to 20 Job Slots for 12000 kr/pr year
Up to 40 Job Slots for 18000/pr year
Up to 60 Job Slots for 24000/pr year
6. When will we receive an invoice?
You will receive an invoice when you first sign up and activate LinkedIn Basic Jobs. Afterwards, you will receive an invoice yearly.
7. Can we cancel it?
Yes, of course. Your purchase is valid for a year at the time. If you wish to cancel your subscription before the next invoice, you will not receive an invoice for the remaining time. A cancellation must happen at least a month before the yearly renewal of your subscription. Your subscription is renewed automatically and revised according to the number of Job Slots of your HR-ON Recruit contract.
8. Can we choose to post just some jobs or none at all?
No, unfortunately not. The main idea behind LinkedIn Basic Jobs is that your career page is mirrored on LinkedIn, so that the LinkedIn users can find all your job postings at any time. On top of that, it also works as your Employer Branding.
9. Can we have LinkedIn Basic Jobs and purchase LinkedIn Premium Jobs as well?
Yes, you can. As previously mentioned the two types complement each other as they both have their own main targets.
10. What is the difference between LinkedIn Basic Jobs and LinkedIn Premium Jobs?
LinkedIn Basic Jobs cover, as the name suggests, the most basic aspects. You use it to keep your LinkedIn company page up to date and make the job postings visible to any potential new employees looking for their next opportunity on the LinkedIn Job site·
Premium Jobs must be manually selected for each job posting, which makes the job posting target specific potential candidates. The job posting will, in other words, be exposed to candidates who are not necessarily or actively on the lookout for a new job. The LinkedIn algorithm takes different aspects into account - among these are experience, job titles etc. But it will also take into account what the potential candidate has liked or commented on on the platform. All of these things help target very specific candidates that may not have considered you as a workplace.
11. Is posting on LinkedIn Premium Jobs the same as posting on our company account?
LinkedIn Premium Jobs are not to be confused with the social sharing button you will see on the bottom tab when you create a new job posting in HR-ON Recruit. You can still share your new job postings on your LinkedIn news feed - free of charge.
Basic Jobs are reserved for the jobs that you can find in the tab Jobs on your company site on LinkedIn as well as in LinkedIn’s job database.
If you wish to get your hands on the LinkedIn Basic Jobs integration, reach out to HR-ON Support.
