Managing Job Posting Distribution

From your

Applies to ,


You can distribute your postings on Jobs on Facebook and Indeed when you are finished creating your first job posting. You can also manage these settings after you have created multiple job postings.

Job posting distribution is a paid feature of Hire.

See Hiring Employees for more information on managing your job postings in Hire.



Indeed analyzes and approves job postings before posting them to their site. Due to this, your job posting distribution to Indeed may be delayed up to several days. In addition, when you remove a job posting from Hire there may be a delay before it is removed from Indeed.

If you are a staffing company, Indeed does not allow you to use Hire to post your jobs to Indeed.

If your job postings are not being displayed, see the FAQ.

Jobs on Facebook

Facebook analyzes and approves standard job postings over a 2-4 hour time period. You can verify your job has been posted by searching for your job in the Jobs on Facebook  marketplace. Your job postings get sent to Facebook where it appears in the following locations: your Facebook Business page, the Jobs bookmark, Facebook Jobs marketplace, and your News Feed.

  • In order to view your job postings on your Facebook Business page, you will need to connect your Facebook Business page to Hire by When I Work.
  • The administrator of the Facebook Business account is sent a Facebook notification to connect 24-48 hours after enabling the integration.
  • The administrator also receives an email to connect in the same time period.

To connect, have the administrator of your Facebook Business page check their Facebook notifications and check their email for an invitation from Facebook to connect.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why isn’t my posting displayed on Indeed?

If your job posting is not displayed on Indeed, try using their ATS Partner Knowledge Base to solve your issue. The knowledge base includes documentation to help you solve issues that involve:

  • Job description
  • Duplicate content
  • Job titles

Indeed does not post Job Postings from When I Work if you’re using other third-party job recruiting sites or platforms. (Example: ZipRecruiter)

If you are still having an issue with your job posting being displayed, Indeed recommends contacting them directly using their Submit a Request form.

Why isn’t my posting displayed on Jobs on Facebook?

If your job posting is not displayed on Jobs on Facebook, it may contain words that Facebook’s algorithm filters for. Facebook does not allow the following specific references for United States-based job postings:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Race
  • Nationality

Do I have to activate both distributions?

No, you can elect to use Jobs on Facebook or Indeed distributions independently of one another.

You cannot post one job to Jobs on Facebook and another job to Indeed. All job postings are sent to both distributions simultaneously.
