  • All job content must be inside CDATA sections to avoid issues processing your XML feed.
  • Feeds must provide all currently open jobs, not jobs added since the last feed request. Jobs not included in your feed will be removed from our search results.
  • The date provided for each job should indicate when the job was first published.
  • The referencenumber provided for each job must be unique to that job.

Character Encoding

  • Please provide the proper character encoding for your feed in the XML header.
  • The example above illustrates UTF-8 however this may or may not be the case for you. Please check with your system administrator if you need clarification.
  • If you’re not specifying the proper encoding your listings may come through with weird characters.���

Acceptable Use Policies
Your feed will be disabled and your jobs will be removed from our search results without notice if you do not adhere to the following:

  • URLs you provide must be permanent links directly to the job description. You must NOT require the user to log in to view the job description (you may require a user log in to apply for a job).
  • All jobs provided in your XML feed must be unique to your website. You must NOT include jobs from other job boards in your XML feed.
  • You must NOT include expired or closed jobs in your XML feed.

If your feed is disabled you will need to contact us to reactivate it.

Indeed may reject or remove any job postings for any or no reason.

Feed Updates & Delivery

  • We will check your feed once a day for new jobs.
  • You can provide your feed via password protected HTTP or FTP sites.
  • You are encouraged to zip or gzip your feed.
  • If necessary, use HTTP authentication to keep feeds private instead of restricting access based on IP address (which may change).
