Posting to Job Boards

How do I post a job for free?

Just click the "Post to Job Boards" button and select any plan. We ask for a credit card to validate your account and allow for a seamless transition if you decide to keep your account active past 4 days (i.e. we won’t have to take your job posting offline to wait for your credit card). If you decide to cancel on the Billing page before the free trial ends you will not be charged anything. You can keep whatever candidates you receive.

What is a "job slot?"

Job slots represent the number of jobs you can have live on the job boards at any given time. For example, if you are on a ZipRecruiter plan with 3 job slots, you can post 3 jobs today and replace them with 3 different jobs tomorrow without needing any more slots. You can freely swap jobs in and out of these slots by closing and posting jobs as needed. If you need additional job slots just select a higher plan on the Select Plan page.

Where are my jobs being sent to?

You can view our job board partners at ZipRecruiter.com/job-boards. We automatically send your active jobs to all of the job boards listed under "Job Boards". Premium boards and Veteran Boards are not included in your subscription. Premium and Veteran boards require an additional fee in addition to your current subscription. There is no extra charge to utilize your "Social Networks", but your log-in information is required, so you will need to follow the necessary steps to share your job through social media. Your Twitter postings, however, can be automated with a single authentication.

^ TOP

Can I pick the job boards that my ads will show up on?

No. The ZipRecruiter system automatically distributes your post to all of our 100+ job board partners.

^ TOP

How long will my job ads stay at the top of job boards?

The way search results are displayed for job seekers varies among our job board partners. In general, ads are displayed based on relevancy, not posting date. To ensure that your ad is easily found by the right candidates reach out to our Customer Success team. You can also try one of our trafficboosts to ensure maximum visibility.

^ TOP

I went to look on *insert job board here* and I don’t see my ad. You advertise that you post to 100+ Job boards so why is my ad not on their site?

ZipRecruiter sends your job promptly to all of our job board partners. Sometimes, you don’t see your ad because the board in question has not yet updated their pages. Different job boards update with different frequencies and can show different results depending on the search terms used. In some cases, their search engine may not display your job ad on the search terms you would expect. Once we deliver the job, the frequency with which it is shown is controlled by the partner entirely, not by Ziprecruiter.

^ TOP

Why couldn’t I just post to all these free job boards myself?

You could, but we think it is a huge pain in the neck. We created ZipRecruiter to make this process more efficient, effective and delightful. Plus, all of your candidates will come into one list rather than trying to manage it all through your inbox. We even integrate with the top paid boards like Monster so you can do everything in one place.

^ TOP

Why do you recommend against including a phone number and/or email address in my job description?

By doing this, candidates may choose not to click our "Apply Now" button to submit their resume and interview answers.

We will email you as soon as you get a new candidate so there is no need to include your phone or email address in the job description.

^ TOP

Is ZipRecruiter planning on supporting any more job boards?

Your job is also promoted in our daily email alerts sent to 25 million+ active job seekers. With each "TrafficBoost" you can get up to 100 unique visitors to your job posting.

^ TOP

How do I double or triple boost my job ad? Do candidate number and number of days increase?

Each boost will deliver up to 100 extra visitors to your job ad. Double and triple boost means your ad will stay high in search results, longer across both our distribution network and job alerts while we try to get to 200 or 300 clicks respectively. We can’t always guarantee these results, but the system makes every effort over a 30-day period to deliver.

^ TOP

How does your system choose who gets the email alerts? How accurate does it match up?(Job Boards)

The primary criteria for matching is: geography, the quality of the job match to the seeker’s job alert and the freshness of the ad. Jobs that are TrafficBoosted will be shown to many more job-seekers.

^ TOP

Can I send candidates directly to my Applicant Tracking Software (ATS)?

Yes, you can add a Custom Apply URL for each job you post. Just select the "Custom Apply URL" option on the Edit Job page and enter the URL that points directly to the application page created by your ATS.

^ TOP

I purchased a Traffic Boost and it is not performing. When can I get my refund?

In some cases a job ad is either in a smaller geographic location or in a category for which there are less job seekers on job boards. In these instances, the ZipRecruiter system does everything possible to max out the delivered results, but may not be able to deliver the full 100 clicks. If your TrafficBoost fails to meet its requirement please feel free to contact our Success Team for assistance.

All postings on ZipRecruiter require to be specific to a city or zipcode. Although a specific city/zipcode is required your ad is searchable nationwide.

^ TOP

What should I include in my job description?

We encourage employers to make their job ads clear and concise. You can easily organize your position’s responsibilities and requirements with bullet points, numbered lists, and other formatting tools we have available. It can be helpful to add benefits, salary range, and perks to make your job more appealing, but it is important to stay on message. Job descriptions that are too extensive and detailed can result in unqualified candidates because requirements can be easily overlooked. On the other hand, jobs that are too ambiguous and vague can discourage candidates from applying because there’s not enough information about the position. For more helpful ideas check out "How Do I Write a Job Description" on our Hiring Resources page.

Title:

The best title will be short, sweet, and to the point. A few, specific words relating to the position is all you need! Remember: Job seekers may be searching any/all keywords related to your position. You might even consider creating a few job ads with different titles to cover all search options. Also, add any/every keyword you think applies in the title and/or job description.

Be sure not to include extraneous symbols, your company name, or a web address in your title. These additions are often flagged by our job board partners.

Location:

It's always beneficial to place your job under the largest metropolis within roughly 25 miles from where the job is. This assists with search algorithms and gets you higher up on the search pages. You can always include: 'Actual Job Location: ____' in your job description if you're worried about misrepresenting your official office location.

Additionally, if you're posting the same job ad multiple times, be sure each location is unique and also at least 25 miles away from the other locations. (If you post the same ad in the same city more than once, this can be viewed as spam by our job board partners.) Another easy way to avoid this issue is to tweak the title on each duplicate job ad you post so it appears unique to our partners.

Job Description:

An example of a good format for your job description might be: 1) Brief overview of the position, 2) Overview of day-to-day responsibilities, 3) Requirements that must be met in order to apply. A few questions you might consider addressing in your job ad: is this position full time or part time? Is this position entry level or is experience required?

Also, A job seeker is more likely to apply if they can get an idea of pay structure and benefits. Specific numbers aren't necessary, but why not include whether this is a Salaried or Hourly position? Or if there are any health insurance benefits? Free coffee? Mileage stipend?

Length:

The length of your job ad will be a case by case decision but we normally recommend you keep your job around 2-3 paragraphs. A few sentences won't communicate the full spectrum of the job and several paragraphs can seem overwhelming or time consuming to job seekers. Think like a job seeker: Would you want to read a novel? Would you be comfortable applying to a job that is only a sentence or two long? What pertinent information are you looking for in the job ad and how much length is necessary to communicate it?

Hiring Company Description:

Use it! This is a great place to communicate your company history, goals, and practices without cluttering up your job ad with them.

^ TOP

How long are my ads posted?

Your ads are open indefinitely, and will not be taken down till you close them or cancel your subscription. If you notice traffic to your ads is decreasing I it's a quick fix to refresh your job postings, just close the job and select the "Duplicate Job" button. This copies the content of your job but gives it a fresh date. You can then post your duplicate job and it is sent off to our job board partners as a new posting. We recommend doing this, at most, once a month and only if you notice a decrease in traffic.

^ TOP

Does my company’s name have to be listed on the job? Can I post an anonymous ad / keep my company name private?

The name of your company does not have to be displayed but you cannot have the hiring company listed as Confidential, Undisclosed, Anonymous, etc. It’s best to change the hiring company name to something along the lines of your industry. For example Doctor’s Office, Law Firm, Major Manufacturer still explain the nature of your business, but do not directly disclose your identity.

^ TOP

How do I add an additional hiring company?

Hover over Job Settings in the left hand navigation. A pop up box will appear. Select Hiring Companies. On the top right hand corner of the page you’ll see a green add company button, click it. Enter the information and save company.

^ TOP

When will I start to see activity on my job?

A new job posting will usually take about 24 hours to appear on our job board partners, so you should start to see some activity on your job the day after it is posted. If it's been over 24 hours and you have yet to see any activity, feel free to give the Customer Success Team a call. We'd love to take a look at your account and help you optimize your job for the best possible results.

^ TOP

Why don’t you have more job categories? What if I can’t find a category that works for my industry?

Select the category that best fits your job, and if your job happens to fall into more than one, don’t worry. The category you select is not as important as your job’s title and description, so your choice will not harm your job’s performance. It’s best to remain simple and straightforward with title and description so your job is easily found by interested, qualified candidates. Keywords in the job title as well as the job description help yield your job in a job seeker’s search results, so it is important both are in line with the position you are hiring for. Ask yourself: "If I was looking for a position like this, what terms would I search?".

^ TOP

How do I attract more candidates?

Job performance is based on a lot of factors and varies depending on industry and location. We encourage clear and concise job descriptions and titles. If you’d like to drive more candidates to your position a TrafficBoost will help get you results fast. A single TrafficBoost credit can drive up to 100 additional visitors to your ad. If you apply a TrafficBoost to a job, it is then included in job alert emails to job seekers in your area. Your job is only sent to job seekers that have alerts relevant to your position, so it is a great way to reach local candidates who are interested in jobs like yours.

^ TOP

How can I fill my position fast?

If your job is in a smaller city or town, posting your job in the largest neighboring city is a great way to get more exposure. If you have available job slots you can post your job multiple times in nearby cities to reach a larger pool of candidates. If you do so, make sure that the cities are at least 25 miles apart from each other. If jobs are identical and too close in proximity, they are viewed as duplicates by our job board partners and will not be posted. If you don’t want to venture out that far, you can post the job again, just make sure you re-word the job description so your jobs read differently. See: “What should I include in my job description?” above for tips you can follow to help maximize your exposure.

^ TOP

What are some ways to optimize my job listing?

We have a job performance team, dedicated to assisting our customers with their ads. It is a free service that we offer and has shown successful results in attracting more candidates. If you are interested in our assistance, please feel free to call us at 877-252-1062 or email us at Support@Ziprecruiter.com.

Avoiding Leaks:

In order to avoid job seekers leaving your job page before applying, we recommend you remove any website URLs and/or contact info from your job ad. Giving job seekers these 'redirection options' can distract them from the simple application process which is set up automatically on your job page. In many cases, if a job seeker is redirected to a website to apply or given an email address to send their resume too, they can be lost in the process of leaving your job page and taking those extra steps to send their resume through.

^ TOP

How do I create the best job posting?

Look at your job through “Job Seeker Glasses.” If you were on the job hunt, what keywords would you search in order to pull up this position? What would you be looking for in the title and job description that would draw you in to apply? What pertinent information would you want included? This is the best way to create a relatable job ad that job seekers will be attracted to!

^ TOP

I applied a TB and/or sent my ad over to Linkedin and/ or Monster, if I "repost" my listing will I lose them?

It is best that you do not close the ad while Linkedin, Monster, and/or TrafficBoosts are currently active. This will result in the loss of your premium purchase. You can edit and save the changes to your job ads at any time. Posting the saved edits to Monster, requires clicking on the Monster icon and then clicking update Monster ad button.

I am using the job widget. When I create and/or close my job ads, will the job widget update itself on my website?

Every time someone applies to your job through ZipRecruiter you are sent a notification via email. The notification is sent to you as soon as a job seeker applies so you can stay updated on your candidates in real time. These emails include general information like a candidate’s name, email address, phone number, and their resume is included as an attachment. Their complete application is saved inside your ZipRecruiter account for you reference when you log on.

^ TOP

Is there a limit on the number of candidates I can receive?

No! Every plan we offer allows an unlimited number of candidates to apply to each job.

^ TOP

Will candidates contact me directly?

Having your contact information listed is not necessary since we send you New Candidate Alert emails as job seekers apply. ZipRecruiter does not display any of your contact information unless you explicitly state it in your job title, description, or hiring company information. We strongly advise against adding your contact information to your job because it is a public ad and can be easily found using a basic search engine. This means you may be subject to spam and bombarding phone calls or emails if your contact information is displayed. Also, job seekers can be contacting you directly and circumventing the application process on ZipRecruiter, so the amount of candidates displayed on your job may not be accurate.

^ TOP

Can I integrate ZipRecruiter with my company’s current applicant tracking system?

Our Custom Apply URL feature will direct candidates straight to your online application when they hit the "Apply" button. Although there is an option to input a Custom Apply URL, we suggest you give it a try after your trial. Some of our job board partners do not accept jobs with a Custom Apply URL, and we wouldn’t want it to negatively affect your traffic.

^ TOP

Am I able to pre-screen candidates?

We cannot prevent anyone from applying to your job, but you can add interview questions to help filter out unqualified candidates. These questions will appear to job seekers as they go through the application process, and their answers are displayed for you when reviewing their candidate page. You can even make certain questions deal breaker questions. This means if a candidate answers a questions incorrectly, they are automatically hidden from your list of candidates. They are still saved in your account for you to reference if you’d like, but they are not included in your general candidate pool. To add an interview click on the title of the job, and then select the "Add Interview" tab. If you’d like to make a question a deal-breaker select the "Deal-Breaker Question" box underneath your answers.

^ TOP

Can I send bulk emails, like rejection letters and interview requests, to my candidates?

Yes, you can go to My Jobs and for each job that has more than 1 candidate, click on the "Send email to candidates" icon. From here, you can select one, some, or all of your candidates to email. Create your own email or use our templates for rejection letters, interview requests, and more. You can also click into a candidate’s profile -> Actions -> Email Candidate to start with a specific candidate.

^ TOP

Can I have my own confirmation email sent when candidates apply?

Yes. You have 2 options. An automated reply for each candidate when they apply to any job at the hiring company or a manual bulk email. To set up the automated email hover over the job settings tab in the left hand navigation. Select Custom Auto-Reply Email. You can then add an additional message along with the standard ZipRecruiter confirmation email. If you wish to have candidates reply to this confirmation email, please be sure to include a valid email address for them to respond to. If you’d like to manually email candidates for a specific job click on my jobs in the left hand navigation. Click on the number of candidates for the specific job. This will take you to the My Candidates page. You can then select which candidates you’d like to email by checking the box next to their name and choosing Email Candidate from the pop out menu. Compose and send your message.

^ TOP

What if I don’t get any candidates?

A new job posting can take up to 24 hours to appear on outside job boards after you have posted. If you still haven’t received any candidates after this time period, please make sure your phone number and/or email address are NOT in the job description. This is because many candidates will call or email you directly rather than applying through ZipRecruiter. We distribute your job and provide the best advice we can about writing quality job titles and descriptions, but we can’t guarantee applicants. Feel free to reach out to our Customer Success team at 877-252-1062 or support@ziprecruiter.com for feedback on your job ad or ask us other related questions.

^ TOP

Can I send automated emails to my candidates?

You have the ability to send an automated message to candidates that they receive at the completion of the application process. You can do so through the “Custom Auto-Reply Email” feature. This is a message from ZipRecruiter to your candidate, but you are able to add a personalized message to the email we send. To set up these automated emails go the “Job Settings” tab on the left side of your screen and select “Custom Auto-Reply Email” from the pop-up menu.

^ TOP

What are Interview Questions?

You have the ability within your account to add interview questions to your ZipRecruiter application process. This is a great way to get an idea if a candidate is a good fit right off the bat! To add interview questions, simply go to My Jobs and click on the job you want to add them to. You'll see an option on the next page to 'Add Interview.' Once you've clicked on that, just follow the prompts! If you'd like to auto-hide new candidates who answer this question incorrectly, feel free to click the 'Deal-Breaker' box on your interview question. Keep in mind these auto-hidden candidates will still visible under 'My Candidates' then 'Hidden.'

^ TOP

I have new candidates, why didn't I receive an email candidate notification to my email address?

First check your user settings to see if you are selected to receive the candidates, how often (as they happen or daily digest) and to what email address. If you have the desired settings, next check your spam/junk folder. You should also have your email provider whitelist support@ziprecruiter.com and sendgrid.ziprecruiter.com.

^ TOP

How are visitors and apply clicks calculated?

We track the number of visitors to your job pages hosted on ziprecruiter.com as well as the number of people who click the "Apply" button (if the job uses a custom apply URL to your ATS). In both cases, we use web browser cookies to avoid counting the same user multiple times.

^ TOP

What does "incomplete" mean next to the candidate's name?

Incomplete simply means the candidate did not complete all of the interview questions you added to your job ad. If you are interested in the candidates responses you can always email the candidate directly and request they complete the interview questions. They can access the questions by clicking on the Applied Jobs tab from within their account.

^ TOP

Where did the 5 star rating system go?

In an effort to make ZipRecruiter even easier to use we introduced the Quick Rate system. With Quick Rate hiring managers have a consistent and more intuitive rating system to compare candidates.

^ TOP

How can I access the previous 5 star rating system?

If you’d like access to previously rated candidates, please reach out to our Customer Success Team at 877-252-1062 or support@ziprecruiter.com to request to show star ratings. This will show star ratings on the individual candidates pages.

Who can view the "Internal Notes" that appear on the candidate page?

The notes are only visible to you or any users that are on your account. Candidates can never see these notes.

^ TOP

What is "Rating"? Are ratings visible to the candidate?

Ratings are used to organize your candidates based on your interest level: "not interested," "unsure" or "interested." You also have the ability to quickly rate one candidate after another, using the QuickRate tool accessible from your Dashboard, My Candidates page, and My Jobs page. Ratings are only visible to you and any users in your organization. Candidates never see these ratings.

^ TOP

What happens when I "hide" or Thumbs Down a candidate?

Rate a candidate as "Not Interested" to automatically hide that candidate, and all similar candidates going forward. You may always change this auto-hide setting within "Options" in "Settings". You can also click into each candidate profile and "Hide Candidate" from the "Rating" section.

^ TOP

What is the "Completed in" time shown on the candidate page?

This is the total elapsed time it took that candidate to complete your entire interview. This gives you a way to compare candidates relative to each other.

^ TOP

You can share internal notes on the candidate and edit their status on the Candidate Detail page.

^ TOP

If I email a candidate from my Ziprecruiter account will the candidate see my email address?

Emailing a candidate from within the ZipRecruiter system will list the logged-in user’s email address for replies and that email address will be visible to the candidate. If you do not wish to show your email address, click on the option "Block replies from candidates" at the bottom of your email before sending. Once clicked, the candidate will not be able to see your email address or reply directly to you.

^ TOP

How to get a copy of emails through our system:

When you email a candidate from within ZipRecruiter, there is no copy or transcript saved automatically. If you wish to receive this, you'll need to check the box that says: 'Send myself a copy of this email.' You will then be BCC’d a transcript of your correspondence.

What are labels and how do I use them?

Labels are like tags that you add to candidates to make them easier to find later. You can add labels to a candidate with phrases like "call back" or "potential interview." Later, if you filter by that label, you can see all the candidates that have been labeled that way. Labels are shared across your company’s ZipRecruiter account but are never visible to candidates.

^ TOP

Can I delete a label?

Yes, on an individual candidate page you can remove any currently-applied labels by clicking the small "X" icon inside the orange label. Once you have deleted the label from the last candidate, the label itself will be deleted.

This is currently not an available feature. ZipRecruiter is continuously updating, please stay tuned as new features are developed.

ZipResumes are taken from a candidate’s original resume and reformatted for readability and consistency. It makes scanning lots of resumes a much more efficient process. However, the original resume is always available for viewing and download.

How do candidates contact me?

Candidates are not contacting you unless you put your contact information in the job description. When candidates apply to your job we send you a notification email with their information and their resume is included as an attachment.

How do I attract more candidates?

Job performance is based on a lot of factors and varies depending on industry and location. We encourage clear and concise job descriptions and titles.

Company Branding

What is a Hiring Company?

ZipRecruiter allows you to create different "Hiring Companies" associated with your job postings (additional charges apply). This gives you the power to post jobs for multiple employers under the same ZipRecruiter account. Each Hiring Company has unique settings for company name, company description, logo, website and header color. Each Hiring Company also has a unique page listing all the open jobs for that Hiring Company. To manage your Hiring Companies, go to the Job Settings -> **[Hiring Companies](/user/company)** page.

^ TOP

How to add company branding to your ZipRecruiter job post:

Adding a logo to the header of your job ad displays professionalism. In addition, you can add a specific color to the header where your company name is displayed, whether or not you have added a logo. This can all be done under 'Job Settings' then 'Hiring Companies' then 'edit'. To add a logo to your company branding, go to the Hiring Companies page. Select the Hiring Company you would like to edit, then click the "Browse..." button next to the Company Logo field. Next, select the logo file on your computer (GIF, JPG or PNG are the recommended file format choices, and sizes of 100px or less in either direction are best). Once you save, this will change the displayed company logo on all of your jobs and company job page for this Hiring Company. You can always upload another logo or delete it at any time by clicking "Delete current logo" link.

^ TOP

How do I change my job/interview header color?

To change the header color on your jobs and interviews, go to the Hiring Companies page. Select the Hiring Company you would like to edit, then click inside the "Header Color" field. Here you can either type in a 6-digit web color (like #000000 for black or #FF0000 for red, etc.) or select a color from the popup color palette that will appear to the right. Once you save, this will change the displayed header color on all of your jobs and interviews using this Hiring Company (currently posted jobs will take up to 24 hours to be updated).

Resume Database

What is the ZipRecruiter resume database?

In addition to the unlimited candidates you can collect for your own posted jobs, you can also search our database of resumes to help find the perfect fit! The resume database contains resumes of job-seekers that are currently active and have elected to share their resumes with hiring managers.

^ TOP

What is a "resume database view?"

First things first...don’t worry, we do NOT limit the number of candidates you can receive on your posted jobs, nor do we limit the number of times you can view and download their resumes. However, ZipRecruiter has its own resume database that you can search to find even more candidates. Each ZipRecruiter plan comes with a set number of ’resume database views’ per month. For example, if your plan has 25 resume database views, you can access 25 new resumes every month. Once you have viewed a resume it will show up in your My Viewed Resumes page for you to access and download as often as you’d like.

^ TOP

What’s the difference between a Resume Database view and a submitted candidate’s resumes?

ZipRecruiter never limits the number of people who can apply to your job(s). We also never limit you from viewing any resumes that candidates submit to you. However, if you wish to proactively search and extract resumes out of our Resume Database, the number of resumes you may view in full will be limited to a specific number per month. (This number may be selected by you when you sign up for a ZipRecruiter plan.)

^ TOP

Do employers pay to access resume database?

Yes. Employers must be subscribed to ZipRecruiter to access the resume database.

^ TOP

Do job-seekers pay to be in the resume database?

No, inclusion in the resume database is completely free for job-seekers. They may opt in or out at any time.

^ TOP

What if I am having trouble viewing a resume?

If you cannot view a resume in your web browser we recommend refreshing the page after a few moments. If you still cannot view the resume let us know. As a fallback, you can always download the resume file to your desktop using the link on the resume page.

^ TOP

So I can only view 25 resumes a month total from candidates?

ZipRecruiter never limits the number of candidates you receive. You can review all of the resumes that are submitted to your job posting from inside your account under the “My Candidates” tab.The number of resumes you are referring to is the number of resumes you can download a month from our Resume Database. The Resume Database allows you to search an unlimited amount of resumes from eager job seekers. You can preview the content of an unlimited amount of resumes in the database, but we do limit the amount of job seekers you can contact. The 25 is how many times you can view the contact information for the resumes you are previewing.

^ TOP

The annual plan comes with a 6 month trial?

Our annual plans come with a 4 day free trial, just like all of our subscriptions for new users. You are charged for that plan at the end of your trial, but you are taking advantage of a significant discount. The annual plan is a commitment to 12 months of service, but when you divide the amount of the annual plan by 12 months, you see you are paying about 1/2 of the monthly cost. This equates to 6 months of free service vs. a monthly option that is active for 12 months.

Once the automatic renewal is off your account will move to inactive on your next billing date. If you have a monthly billing term, you are able to turn your subscription off and on as you’d like.

Can I purchase a single job posting?

You do not have the option to purchase a single job posting. We only offer subscription plans with an assigned number of job slots.

How am I supposed to know if you work in 4 days?

Since your free trial functions just like the subscription plan you selected, there’s nothing you’re missing out on with your trial and longer your job is posted, the more candidates you are able to receive.

My mailer says post a job for free and gives me a offer code, but why am I only getting a 4 day free trial?

Your mailer is an invitation to try our 4 day free trial. The offer code you received lets us know how you heard about our service. You should be able add the offer code on the credit card page, but if you can’t find the box, or don’t apply the offer code, don’t worry; you’re still completely eligible for the 4 day free trial like all new users.

Why are Monster and some other sites included on the site for a "free" job posting when they cost extra?

We send your jobs to some of the most visited job boards on the internet to help maximize your job’s visibility. The list of Job Board Partners maps out what’s included in your subscription. "Premium Candidate Channels" and "Veteran Job Boards" are not included in your subscription because there is an additional fee to post to them.

I was unaware that my auto-renewal was on, how do I resolve my current charge?

ZipRecruiter is a subscription based service of which all users are required to agree to during sign up. Unfortunately, it is not in ZipRecruiter’s jurisdiction to manage each account for cancellation. However, auto-renewals may be canceled at anytime on the Billing -> Subscription Details page. You may also call our Success Team for further clarification.

What happens to my account if I cancel?

If you cancel your account during your trial, your account moves to inactive. This means your job ads are taken down and you lose all account access. All of your information is saved in your account, but it is not accessible until you activate a subscription. If you’d like to come back to the service to post a job you will be subject to payment when you reactivate.
