Posting basic jobs on LinkedIn

You can manually publish your jobs on LinkedIn.

1. Go to the job you want to promote and select the Job boards tab.

2. Click Publish next to LinkedIn.

📌 To post your jobs to LinkedIn, we require additional authentication. Provide your LinkedIn Company ID by creating a credential for LinkedIn Basic Jobs.

💡When multiple locations are created for your job, (up to seven) separate job listings will be sent to LinkedIn for each location. However, LinkedIn will ignore all other locations if remote is selected.

What are LinkedIn Basic Jobs?

Basic Jobs (formerly LinkedIn Limited Postings) are job posts gathered by LinkedIn to create a comprehensive job-seeking experience for LinkedIn members. They are visible to candidates actively conducting a job search when viewing a company's LinkedIn Page.

💡 Learn more in LinkedIn's help center.

You can follow these steps on your LinkedIn company page to find the required Company ID.

1. Go to your LinkedIn company page and select the Jobs tab.

2. Under Recently posted Jobs, click See all Jobs.

3. You can now find the Company ID in the URL of the page.

💡 Learn more in LinkedIn's FAQ.

Manage LinkedIn job board credentials

Why is my job posting not on LinkedIn?

LinkedIn validates every job posting. Please ensure that your LinkedIn Company ID and the Job location in your Job posting are set up correctly.

There are several reasons why a Basic Job may not appear on LinkedIn:

  • The job is already posted on your LinkedIn Page as a paid job via Recruiter, Job Wrapping, or the Job Posting widget. Please check the Jobs tab on your company's LinkedIn Page to confirm if the same job has been published already.

  • You may have opted out of job ingestion from any third-party site.

  • Jobs posted on LinkedIn may be selected to undergo LinkedIn's jobs review process and must meet their guidelines as part of their commitment to professionalism and integrity. If jobs do not meet the guidelines, they may be marked as spam.

💡 Job Wrapping is a service which LinkedIn fully manages. Recruitee does not have control over what information is displayed as it does not integrate with our job details.

What do I do if I still need help with the jobs not publishing?

You can contact LinkedIn Support for more information if you still have problems with the jobs not publishing.

💡 LinkedIn has a policy on the content formatting of job postings. You can also contact LinkedIn for questions regarding incorrect job posting details.

Share the following details with LinkedIn's support team:
