Once everything is done click save.

So whenever a user clicks on the job post or signup for Indeed you get an affiliate commission. You can also monetize your blog or website by enrolling AdSense.

Here Indeed is taken as an example other than Indeed you can join Juju, Beyond, CareerBuilder, SimpyHired, Authenticjobs, Adzuna and Career jet .Procedures remain same for all job boards.

While registering for publisher id some job portals will ask for company mail address. If you have the one already signup with it else get a free business email address from Zoho.

Two or more plugins can be activated at the same time to import more jobs from multiple job boards.

A research conducted by Gallup (Management consulting company) revealed that 87% of employees are not satisfied with their present job and always looking for a job change.

So, irrespective of the unemployment rate of a country job aggregator’s business continue to exist.
