Indeed has announced some changes to how their features and pricing will work, further evidence that they are looking to a LinkedIn-sytle revenue model.
In 2018 we will be making a change to how we price Indeed Resume for employers, moving to a subscription model. We believe this will be more effective for both employers and job seekers. The change will make it much easier to predict and set recruiting costs while rewarding recruiters with tangible benefits.
From ‘Pay Per Contact’ to ‘Subscription’
At present, searching Indeed Resume is free while most employers pay on a per contact basis for each candidate they reach out to. As of January 2018, searching the database will remain free, but employers will need a subscription to contact candidates.
Featured Employers will continue to enjoy unlimited contacts* through the first quarter of 2018, after which point they will need a subscription to contact candidates.
