Problem

User selects Indeed as an external job board to post to but it does not show up on Indeed or shows up but then disappears

Solution

Indeed pulls down job postings that are posted by Staffing Agencies.  They identify these job postings by looking for keywords and phrases in the job descriptions.

Steps to Take
  1. Check the Indeed XML feed and search for the job in question.
    1. DO NOT SHARE THIS LINK WITH OUR CLIENTS! IT INCLUDES DATA FOR EVERY BUILD IN AVIONTÉ.
    2. Click this link to view the XML: mycompas.com/jobsrss_compas_all.xml
    3. User the search function of the browser to look for the job in question - if you find it, proceed to step 2. If you can't find it, then the job is not being sent to Indeed. Double-check the steps to verify the client is doing it right, run your own test, then ask a dev for next steps.

  2. If the job appears in the feed you can then go to Indeed.com to enter the following:

    • In the what box enter feedid:20496 company:(company name as it appears in Indeed feed)

      All of the jobs that are currently posted should appear for that company.  If you scroll down to the bottom of the page you may find a message alerting you if any jobs have been removed. The message will also include a hyperlink to those removed jobs.


  3. Go back to Avionté and view the job in question. Check the job description as well as the job posting text on their Job Board to see what it says.
    1. Look for any type of verbiage that might cause Indeed to flag the job as being posted by a Staffing Agency such as, but not limited to: "our client", "staffing", "agency" and other words and phrases that might make the job seem like it's not posted by the actual company who is looking to hire. Remove those offending words and phrases and then try again.

  4. Make sure to tell the client why their job was pulled down by Indeed and provide them with a couple of tips so that he doesn't happen again.
