Basic Usage

The Indeed Apply shortcode can be added to any post/page/custom post type. Use the shortcode anywhere you would normally put an email address to accept job applications, or on any job listing.

A basic Indeed Apply shortcode:

[indeed-apply jobtitle="Interaction Designer" emailapplicationto="apply@yourdomain.com"]

There is no limit on number of Indeed Apply shortcodes you can use on a single page.

There are only two required attributes:

  1. jobtitle - The title of the job the current indeed apply button references, this will be used in the application form.
  2. emailapplicationto - the email address where you would like job applications sent.

The emailapplicaitonto attribute is encrypted by the plugin and never displayed in the HTML or to the applicant. This is done to protect your email from spambots and email abuse.

Advanced Usage

The Indeed Apply shortcode accepts several advanced attributes that allow for custom configuration of your job application.

A complete Indeed Apply shortcode:

[indeed-apply jobtitle="Interaction Designer" emailapplicationto="apply@yourdomain.com" companyname="Awesome Company Inc" joblocation="Austin, Texas" phone="required" coverletter="required" continueurl="https://www.yourdomain.com/submit-success"]

All supported attributes:

  • jobtitle (required) - The title of the job the current indeed apply button references, this will be used in the application form.
  • emailapplicationto (required) - The email address where you would like job applications sent. This value is encrypted, and not exposed in the source code or presented to job seekers.
  • companyname - The company name for the job posting.
  • joblocation - The location of the job. This can be a city, state or a full address.
  • phone - This displays a phone number field on the job application. This attribute accepts one of three values: 'required', 'optional', 'hidden'. The default value (when not specifying the attribute) is 'optional'.
  • coverletter - This displays a cover letter field on the job application. This attribute accepts one of three values, 'required', 'optional', 'hidden'. The default value (when not specifying the attribute) is 'optional'.
  • continueurl - The URL an applicant is redirected to when they complete an application. This is commonly used for a thank you page. The URL must have http:// or https://
