Posting a job

Employers can post job openings on OfferUp Jobs to connect with qualified local candidates. The FAQs below will help you learn more about posting a job.

NOTE

We’re always testing new and improved features in the app. As a result, some features may not be available to all users at the same time. 


Who can post a job?

At this time, only businesses can post jobs on OfferUp. Individuals (non-business entities) cannot post jobs. For more information on our jobs policies, see Prohibited jobs guidelines.

You can post your job from our mobile app or from the web at OfferUp.com.

What information do I need to provide to create a job listing?

To create a job listing, you’ll be asked to provide the following information:

  • Job Location (zip code)
  • Optional: Workplace Type (on-site, remote, or hybrid)
  • Job Title
  • Job Description
  • Job Category (such as customer service or hospitality)
  • Employment Type (part-time, full-time, or gig)
  • Optional: Shift Type (day, night, swing, or flexible)
  • Optional: Pay (a fixed amount or salary range)
  • Company Name
  • Optional: Company Logo (upload a JPG no larger than 5 MB)
  • Apply Method (website, email, or phone)

Can I post job listings in bulk or get volume pricing?

Yes! If you’re an employer or staffing agency that posts more than 10 jobs a month and you’re interested in volume/wholesale pricing, automated job feeds, or industry-specific offerings, please complete our Jobs Contact Form. A member of our team will reach out to discuss how OfferUp can help support your business.

How long will my job listing stay active in the feed?

Your job listing stays active in the feed for 30 days from the date of purchase. When it expires, it will be removed from the feed. Expired job listings remain on your private My Jobs page and cannot be reposted to the public feed. If your listing has expired, but you want to keep promoting your job, you'll need to create a new listing and pay a new listing fee.

How do I check to make sure my job is live in the feed?

To check if your job is live in the feed, search for it by job title or company name. Make sure to set the correct location or zip code for the job listing. But be aware that it may take a few hours for your new job listing to post to the feed, so don’t worry if you can’t find it immediately. Just give it some time. Of course, if you experience any issues with your listing, please reach out to us by clicking the Contact Us button below.

Can I get refunded for a job listing?

We do not offer refunds for paid job listings. However, if you’ve experienced an issue with a job listing, please reach out to us by clicking the Contact Us button below.

How do applicants apply to my job?

You choose how you want job applicants to apply when you create your job listing. On the Post a Job page, select an Apply Method to direct applicants to your Website, or to contact you by Email or Phone to start the application process. Depending on your selection, you’ll need to provide a website URL, email address, or phone number. If you'd like to change the Apply Method you selected, you can edit your listing at any time from your My Jobs page. 

The Apply Method dropdown allows you to select how people will apply to your job.

NOTE

Job candidates and employers cannot message each other through the OfferUp app or OfferUp.com. All communication between applicants and employers occurs outside of the app or website.

Can I see if anyone’s looking at my job?

Yes! See how candidates are engaging with your listings using the jobs Insights dashboard. For more information, see Hire smarter with Insights.

NOTE

OfferUp cannot provide data on how many job seekers actually apply to your listings since all applications occur via third-party websites, phone, or email.
