Sponsored Jobs: Get More Applications for Your Most Important Roles

October 11, 2012

What if your jobs could target just the right candidates?  That’s why we've created LinkedIn Sponsored Jobs: to empower you to source the best talent faster for your key openings, with less effort.

LinkedIn fundamentally changed job postings by enabling you to reach the right candidate with the right opportunity at the right time, whether or not she is actively looking for a job.  It all started with LinkedIn’s personalized job recommendations, which drive the majority of all job engagement on LinkedIn.

But not all jobs are created equal.  Sponsored Jobs empower you to turbo-charge your sourcing efforts for your most important roles, without a lot of extra effort.  The early results have been outstanding: members are three times more likely to apply for a Sponsored Job than if they find the job another way.

Here’s how it works.  You can bid for the top placement in the ‘Jobs You May Be Interested In’ recommendations.  We match your job to the best candidates, and give it top billing on the LinkedIn home page, as well as in their email inbox.  The best part is, you decide when and how often you want your job to appear in this top placement.  You only pay a small amount, as low as $1.00, when a relevant candidate clicks to view your job.

You may have seen or tried premium job placements on other sites.  But LinkedIn Sponsored Jobs allows you to reach passive talent in a way that has not been possible before.  We show your sponsored job to quality candidates based on their skills and experience, rather than waiting for them to search.

Sponsored Jobs are currently available in the Americas and Asia, and will be coming soon to other countries, so stay tuned.
