How to boost recruitment on Indeed with video

Video content has no doubt become the most effective way to put your point across. How come? Well our brains are hard-wired to process things better. Videos generate much better results when it comes to engaging an audience than text or pictures because they engage two senses (sight and sound) at the same time. This allows audiences to focus better and absorb more information. 

Captivate future applicants by using video content for your job postings. Video will help you condense in a more digestible way all the information about the job. With 10.1 million job openings in the US as of April 2023, the best applicants have plenty of options. It’s therefore important to have the most appealing, attention-grabbing job posting to attract the best candidates. 

Below is a simple guide that will help you embed videos into your job postings on Indeed. 

How to include a video in your job posting on Indeed?

Step 1: Post a job

Go to indeed.com/hire and click on “Post a Job.” 

Step 2: Enter job details

After setting up your account, you will have to provide Indeed with your contact information and enter job details such as job title, location, salary, and job description.

Step 3: Embed a video in your posting through the “Add company photos and videos” section

One you’re done adding all the relevant information you will then be prompted to add photos or videos (see below)

Indeed will allow you to upload up to 5 pictures to your job listing. Select “Add from desktop” to choose images and videos from your desktop. Note that the maximum upload size is 10MB per photo and 30MB per video. Please note the following formats are the only ones allowed: jpg, png, and mp4 formats.

Step 4: Upload the visual job posting.

Once you have a video at the ready, upload it the same way you did with the photos. After that, add a descriptive caption of fewer than 100 characters to your video. Once you’re happy, click “Add Media.” If you have changed your mind or made mistake you can always undo this by clicking  “Cancel

Step 5: Finalize your job listing with the remaining sections.

Fill in all the necessary details and click on “Show Preview”. This will allow you to review the listing entirely as it would be shown to any applicants. Once done, click on “Confirm” and post your job.

Congratulations, you’re all set!
