Frequently Asked Questions
Realty Scout distributes jobs to 100+ of the most visited job boards and websites on the Internet. We are always adding more job boards and sources of job seeker traffic to expand the audience for your job posting(s).
You will generally see your job post show up on Indeed, Ziprecruiter, Jobs2Careers, and many other job boards/websites that market to the most relevant traffic. We have a team that does all of the analytics and research to make sure your post will receive the highest quality applicants.
How long does it take for my job to show up on job boards?
A new job posting will usually take 24 hours to appear on outside job boards. Also, when you edit your job description, your changes will take about 24 hours to be reflected on outside job boards. Likewise, if you close the job it will take 24 hours to be removed from them.
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.
I went to look one of the job boards you claim to post on 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?
Realty Scout 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 Realty Scout. Our job is to continuously optimize your job and ensure you receive quality applicants.
How many jobs can I post?

When will I start to see activity on my job?
A new job posting will usually take 24 hours to appear on outside job boards, so you should start to see some activity after the 24 hour mark.

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!
Can I be invoiced instead of paying by credit card?
For monthly plans, we only accept payment by credit card. For invoice-based billing on our discounted longer term plans, please call our sales department directly at (866) 323-6166 Ext. 1
