Dedicated job listing websites, such as Indeed.com and Angel.co, offer free job listing options. However, such websites often try to persuade advertisers to pay for improved listing placement. As of 2015, Craigslist allows free job postings in select areas. Posting on social media is another free option.
Posting a job advertisement via company social media accounts such as on Twitter or Facebook can be done for free. Social networking websites including LinkedIn.com also permit job postings on company pages, groups and profiles. It is also common practice for businesses to post job openings on dedicated sections of their own websites.
General classified advertisements websites such as Craigslist often allow job postings for free; however, Craigslist has phased in fees for job postings across many areas of the country.
