Frequently Asked Questions
We use the information shared in your job description to search millions of resumes on Indeed. Then we surface matched candidates who match your job criteria.
By inviting matched candidates to apply, you’ll attract the attention of great candidates faster than if you only posted a Sponsored Job.
You unlock Instant Match whenever you pay to sponsor a job on Indeed.
A Sponsored Job is a paid listing that has better visibility and doesn’t fall back in search results over time like free listings.
Sponsored Jobs are billed monthly based on our pay-for-performance model. You’re only charged when interested job seekers engage with your Sponsored Job.
You can view matched candidates right after you sponsor a job. After that, you can find them on the Matched Candidates tab of your Employer Dashboard.
You can invite matched candidates to apply as soon as you sponsor a job, or any time after from your employer dashboard.
We recommend inviting anyone who could be a good fit.
When you invite matched candidates to apply, we send them a personalized email with your job information and a link to the description. If they’re interested in the job, you’ll be able to review their full application on the Applicants tab of your employer dashboard.
There’s no extra cost to use Instant Match when you sponsor a job.
