I would like to see option for Refreshing the Indeed Postings for a Position.

Often we have a job, fill a position, archive the position, then a few weeks later, we want the position back up and un-archive it. We get a lot of candidates from Indeed the first time around, then that response peters off and doesn't show any spike when the position is un-archived. Additionally, if the job description is tweaked, I'm not sure the Indeed posting is tweaked. I would like to see option for refreshing the Indeed postings for a position, as often as we'd like. Is this possible?

    I have seen upticks in Indeed applicants whenever I tweak an existing job description and save the update, so I'm guessing that Indeed is using the updated date as a freshness signal. However, I don't archive and then un-archive my positions -- I just leave them open -- so I wonder if that makes a difference.

    Since Indeed is pulling job listings from Catch the Best, rather than my pushing changes to them, I don't know that there's much I can do to ask Indeed to refresh a particular posting. Try updating the description of the job though... that always has an impact for my posts.

  • I think I got the concept of you pushing TO Indeed from the New Position - Visibility section, where it says "Would you like to have your job automatically listed at Indeed? Publish to Indeed:"
    We'll keep experimenting. Next time I un-archive, I'll deliberately tweak the listing, too.
    If any other users have hints for maintaining CTB Position freshness, or some obvious DON'Ts, please let me know!
