To post your jobs automatically - please reply to and send me a link to your job feed.

Q: How would I receive resumes?

PostJobFree would email candidates' applications to you.

The basic job feed inclusion is free.

To advertise your jobs on other job boards - the price is $1 per application you receive.

Q: I do not have a job feed - what do I do?

You have couple of options:
1) Ask your applicant tracking system provider to give you a link to your job feed. It could be XML job feed or RSS job feed.
2) Post your jobs here:

PostJobFree would give you a link to an RSS job feed that contains jobs you posted. You may send that RSS job feed link to other job boards.

4 steps to make resume alert email you right candidates

When relevant candidates post their resumes - you want to know about it ASAP, right?
That is what resume search alerts are good for.

Step #1: Create your first resume search alert

- Open Create Resume Alert page.
- In "What" field type your most important keyword (for example: "nurse").
- In "Where" field type location where you search for candidates (for example: "New York, NY").
- Click "Activate".

Step #2: Create more alerts

Simple alert from step #1 would match only some resumes.
How to catch all relevant resumes?
Create as many alerts as you need.
  • Create alerts for every relevant keyword you are interested in.
  • Create alerts for every location you are interested in.
If you want resumes from everywhere - keep "Where" field empty.
If you want resumes from US only - type "USA" in "Where" field.

Step #3: Fix alerts that email you unwanted resumes

In previous steps you already created resume search alert.
If it emails you too many unwanted candidates - edit alert to make search filter stricter.
  • Open email with alert that sends you too many mismatching resumes.
  • Click "Update this alert" link at the bottom of that email.
  • Add 1 or 2 extra keywords that resume must have in order to deserve your attention.
  • Define exact location (e.g. postal code) and distance for your search.
  • Click "Save".

Step #4: Use Boolean search

Boolean search allows you to create more sophisticated alerts.
These alerts match more resumes and, at the same time, filter out unwanted resumes.
For example: (nurse or rn) psychiatric

How to post jobs

Step #1: Post your first job

Many candidates do not publish their resume. Instead they search for jobs.
Unless you post your job, candidates do not know that your opening exists.
Describe your most pressing opening and post your job.

Step #2: Include all relevant keywords

When adding keywords think about your ideal candidates:
  • What keywords are they going to search for?
  • Does your job posting contain all these keywords?
Add all relevant keywords to your job posting.

Step #3: Add more details to your job description

I recommend 100 to 500 words in your job posting (not too short, not too long).
Update your jobs and describe:
  • Required skills.
  • Benefits of working for your company.
  • Brief company overview (optional).

Step #4: Post more jobs

The more jobs you post - the more applications you would get.
Please post unique job descriptions (not copy-pasted duplicates).
Describe other job openings you have and post them all.

Step #5: Renew expiring jobs

Candidates usually apply only to recently posted jobs.
If you forget to renew your jobs, PostJobFree would send you a reminder 30 days after job's last renewal.
Every week (or every month) review your jobs and renew jobs that are still open.
