Indeed overview

Indeed is a recruitment advertising network that helps companies of all sizes to find the right fit for every hire. The platform acts as a source of candidates for a vast number of companies that helps drive millions of targeted applicants to jobs in every field. Users are provided with a powerful applicant tracking system (ATS) for managing candidates and tracking results while on-the-go via mobile device.

The solution enables organizations to post job listings directly to Indeed, to be automatically included in relevant searches by millions of job seekers online. Users can add job details into simple fields via desktop or mobile app, preview listings to ensure accuracy, and publish within minutes. Users can also add screener questions to filter out any unqualified candidates.

Indeed enables users to manage all candidate communications in one place, including view their resumes, schedule interviews, and send messages. Users can set candidate statuses as reviewed, interviewed, rejected, or hired, and make applicant notes to record impressions. The solution also enables organizations to create and send rejection letters to dropped candidates.

Indeed lets users view their active budget, as well as track results to get insight into listing performance such as candidate count, and the number of views a job listing received. For improved results, organizations can choose to promote their listing as a ‘Sponsored’ job. Sponsored jobs are paid job postings that appear higher above free job postings in search results.

Overall, great tool for sourcing and perfect application for reach out and and how you gauge these interested candidate. 1. Normally, mainstream job boards has the candidate's resume with all the information you need, but for this tool you have minimal information and requires. You to firat aend an email prior to getting contact details if that person is interested. Which I think is very unique with this application. It makes it, it's advantage because you get to really know whose candidates are intereated and will take time to speak with you over the phone. 2. Very easy to use, there is an option on the candidates list that a side pop up shows whenever you try to put the cursor with the candidate's name a brief description of their work history. It will give you an idea of wjat is the recent employment of this person and if it is relevant with your choice 3. You can send email all at once from main page, just click on the tick box 4. Its a mix o f commercial, light industrial up to IT/Healthcare / engineering. 5 saved searches for resume alerts

Almost Perfect Job Search Engine

Review Source: Capterra

As someone who's been an applicant and has acted on behalf of the hiring manager, I have to admit Indeed is the cream of the crop when it comes to the American Job Search Engine. As an applicant, Indeed seems to have the largest and most current job listings with specific keywords/titles/salary/location requirements that I need and demand. It's also an incredible resource to view company salaries and employee reviews - all in one platform. With customizable emails, it's also super helpful to receive daily/weekly jobs, namely jobs specific to you and your tastes. While Indeed has not been my exclusive path to career success, it has had the most impact on my hiring.

Good, but seems to favor quantity over quality.

I continue to use it and it gets the job done, but it's not as great as I would have hoped. It is pretty straightforward to use, I receive most of my applicants and hires from it, but it's only good not great. The email relay function is convenient, and the canned responses for replying to applicants is quite nice and saves a lot of time. I am able to easily post a job, set my specific requirements for employees, and then just review over applications and resumes as they come in. I get notified when applicants are in, and I can quite easily sort through to pick who passes to the next step. A free posting will generate some applicants, and sponsoring is guaranteed to give you a higher quantity of applicants.

Best Way to Find A Job..?

Overall, I would not choose any other job search site of Indeed. I switched over from SnagAJob and I never liked Monster or the other job search sites. This one has the most relevant, REAL jobs, at least most of the time. It still is easy to use and they do offer categories for searches, including full time or part time, and also the distance of the jobs. There could be more options added, possibly, to help people connect to the right work. I feel it is still tiresome no matter what. I don't like having to fill in APPS when I sent a whole resume.There are some pretty obvious reasons to use Indeed, in my opinion. The thing that I like most about this software is that almost every company is on it, which makes it easier to reach more employers. The best thing I like about Indeed is that it keeps my resume online and I can download it as a PDF or I can send the link or even connect my Indeed resume to some employer's applications. I also enjoy the fact that there are One-Click job options and options for temporary work, stuff like Uber or Bouncing in bounce houses with children. This is the best place to find a job. It is the most professional and safe way.
