CVMinder ATS and Indeed

This is a briefing from Indeed to support CVMinder Customers.

How do my jobs get on Indeed?

CVMinder ATS sends an XML feed to Indeed that includes CVMinder ATS clients’ jobs. If your jobs appear on Indeed, it is because they are included in the feed that CVMinder ATS delivers to us. Jobs that are sent to Indeed in CVMinder ATS’s XML feed are enabled with Indeed Apply (opt-in), which means job seekers can use their Indeed Resumes to easily apply for your jobs on Indeed.

How do candidates get to my job from Indeed?

If the job seeker finds your job on Indeed, that job seeker will be redirected to your CVMinder AdLink (the specific job, complete with Application Form) once they click “Apply Now.”  (without Indeed Apply)

If you have Indeed Apply: Your candidates will complete the entire application process on Indeed since CVMinder ATS is integrated with Indeed Apply. Job seekers can get to your career page from Indeed by clicking on the “original job” link that can be found on the bottom of the job listing.

How do I know which candidates are coming from Indeed?

It’s vital to understand how your various hiring sources perform. To find out which candidates come from Indeed (and other sources):

Go to Reports and select Application Analytics. Using the drop-down selection of reports for this section, choose Applicant Sources.

If the source is ‘Indeed Apply’, this has been determined by CVMinder ATS during the Indeed Apply application process. If the source is ‘Indeed’, this may have been determined by CVMinder during an application without Indeed Apply or it may have been selected by the job seeker manually.

Where do candidates apply to my jobs?

Without Indeed Apply: When a job seeker finds your job on Indeed and clicks on the Apply Now button, they will be redirected to your AdLink (the specific job, complete with Application Form) to complete their application.

With Indeed Apply: Jobs that are sent to Indeed in CVMinder ATS’s XML feed are enabled with Indeed Apply.  With Indeed Apply, “Apply with your Indeed Resume” or “Easily Apply” appears below the job description, which helps your jobs stand out in search results. This tells a job seeker that they can use their Indeed resume (or upload a new one) to quickly and easily apply from any device. Once the job seeker has completed the application on Indeed, the applicant data is transmitted to CVMinder ATS and should be viewable by you in your advert applicants tab within CVMinder ATS.

What can I do if I don’t see my jobs on Indeed?

Without Indeed Apply: If it has been more than 24 hours since you created a job in the CVMinder ATS platform and you do not see your job listing on Indeed, contact CVMinder ATS customer support and they will help you troubleshoot why your job may not be appearing. If they’re not able to help you, you should log into your Indeed account and request help. If you don’t have an Indeed account, you should request help via the form on www.indeed.co.uk/hire/contact and say:

“I am a new client of CVMinder ATS, an Integrated ATS with Indeed, and my jobs are included in their comprehensive XML feed. I need a CS rep to review my jobs to determine if they are suitable for organic visibility per Indeed’s Quality Standards.“

How can I attract more candidates to my job listing on Indeed?

Without Indeed Apply: Sponsor your jobs on Indeed to attract more candidates. Free postings lose visibility over time, but you can sponsor a job by logging into Indeed and creating a campaign to make sure your listing gets noticed by more relevant talent. Sponsored Jobs get up to 5X more clicks1, and you only pay when people click on your jobs.

With Indeed Apply:  With the partnership between CVMinder ATS and Indeed, you automatically reap the benefits of Indeed Apply, Indeed’s easy, mobile-optimised application process [but you need to opt-in with CVMinder]. Job seekers see an “Apply Now” button and can easily use their Indeed resume to complete their applications from any device, including mobile devices. Indeed Apply also supports screening questions and can be configured for most custom application processes, ensuring you have the information you need to make the best hiring decisions. Indeed apply jobs get up to 8X more applicants than non-Indeed Apply jobs1, so you’ll see more applicants flowing into your pipeline as a result of the partnership between Indeed and CVMinder ATS.

How do Sponsored Jobs work?

Since thousands of jobs are added to Indeed each day, free job postings lose visibility over time. Relevant Sponsored Jobs stay visible for as long as you run the campaign. When you need to hire quickly, open hard-to-fill roles, or attract talent in a competitive field, you can promote those roles on Indeed straight from CVMinder ATS. Job seekers conduct a search for jobs on Indeed, entering keywords relevant to their experience and background. Indeed then matches the job description and location to those keywords, and the job appears in search results.

How do I sponsor a job?

CVMinder ATS clients who want to sponsor jobs or learn more about how / when to sponsor a job on Indeed can complete this contact form. Indeed’s sales team closely monitors these form submissions, and an Indeed representative will reach out to you to help.
