Access thousands of the best job boards in one place with the Greenhouse Job Ad Market

Job ad market blog feature 2

Let’s talk about a topic that is a consistent pain point for recruiters and leaders searching for the right person for a role – job boards. Picking the best job board to advertise on presents hiring teams with a new challenge. With so many options, it can be difficult for teams to know where to start and how to spend job ad budgets most effectively. For recruiters, scouring the web for the right job boards to post opportunities usually means tons of time. That is, if they have the time to begin with.

Here’s what we commonly hear from people in the industry:

“Will this traditional job board work for my specialist roles?”

“Will these job board credits we purchased result in a high volume of candidates?”

“Do we need to seek outside agency help to focus our sourcing? What if that’s too expensive?”

“What if we don’t have the budget to advertise the way we need to fill our open roles?”

If these questions sound familiar, you’ll most likely agree that it’s more important than ever to be efficient with job advertising. But efficiency is a major challenge for hiring teams when ads need to be manually posted one by one on multiple job boards.

Companies are also increasingly looking to measure the effectiveness of their job advertising. Having the ability to bring as many talent sourcing channels as possible into one place where your team can easily track the efficacy of sourcing efforts isn’t just a “nice-to-have” – it’s a must.


Thousands of job boards, all within Greenhouse

That’s why we’re excited to introduce the Job Ad Market – a highly efficient way to attract quality candidates across a vast portfolio of over 1,000 job boards, all within Greenhouse. Greenhouse sits at the heart of where jobs are created, which is why we’ve enhanced the job ad and sourcing experience with this exciting new feature.

It can be daunting to know that there are thousands of job boards to choose from. The Job Ad Market makes it simple to access and optimize job listings from both traditional and specialized providers – all without leaving Greenhouse. Customers now have easy access to a global portfolio of job boards to target ads based on industry, job function or region.


Get strategic with job board sourcing

With the Greenhouse Job Ad Market, you receive job board recommendations based on historical and industry performance, region and job function to ensure you’re targeting the most effective job boards for your specific sourcing needs. This focus reduces the administrative burden on recruiters who otherwise have to spend valuable time searching for the most appropriate job boards. Instead, recruiters can strategically promote pay-as-you-go job listings in less time and gain more insight into their success through the sourcing data available in Greenhouse.

Launching the Job Ad Market is a continuation of our efforts to help recruiters get more done, effectively and efficiently. In 2020, Greenhouse introduced new capabilities to expand organic posting and launched a new partnership with ZipRecruiter. Now, with quicker access to a more diversified set of job boards, we have made it even easier to identify quality candidates across multiple providers, with competitive pricing and pay-as-you-go flexibility.

So how do you get started? Simply navigate to a job in Greenhouse and select a job board partner. From there, you are a credit card payment away from promoting your job on thousands of job boards, all within Greenhouse. If you’re looking for a new way to boost your job listings, enhance your sourcing strategy and optimize your job ad buying approach, let’s talk!
