my.indeed Account

Why can't I sign in to my.indeed?

Make sure you have the correct email and password for Indeed, then sign in. If you still receive an error then please contact us.

How do I get my Indeed password?

If you forget your password we can email you a new one, just give us your email address.

I'm being asked to log in to apply for a job and I don't remember my log in info. Can you help?

When you click on a job title you leave the Indeed website and go to wherever the job is listed. If you are having trouble with that site you will have to contact them. Indeed is not involved with the application or hiring process of the job listings in our results.

To access your my.indeed account, you need to sign in.

How do I change my email address?

You can change your email address under the account tab of your account with Indeed. You will first need to click on the "change email address" link. Then modify the email address in the "New email address" text box with your new address. You will also need to reenter your current password for security.

After you click the "Save Email" button, a confirmation email will be sent to the new address you entered. Once you click on this confirmation link, any Job Alerts you have set up will begin to be sent to your new address.

How do I save jobs in my.Indeed account?

To save a job, click the save job link next to each job search result. Once you've saved a job, you may click the "add notes" link to add notes and tags to the job. This feature can be used to track which jobs you have applied to, or other useful information on a particular listing.

Job Alerts

How do I get notified if a job becomes available? How do I create a Job Alert?

If you would like to be notified by email whenever jobs that match your criteria become available you can create a Job Alert. A Job Alert will email you on a daily or weekly basis with any new matches to your search.

To create a Job Alert you should first perform a job search. Click on the "Get new jobs for this search by email" link at the top of the results page. Enter your email address and click the "Save Alert" button. If you are not already logged in to your my.indeed account you will then be sent a confirmation email containing a link you must click to activate your alert.

After your alert is activated you will receive your first email within 24 hours.

If you have an account on my.indeed you can manage your alerts through there as well.

How do I confirm my Job Alerts?

In every Job Alert confirmation email there is a link that reads, "Click here to verify your job alert". Clicking on this link will automatically confirm your alert. You should start receiving alerts within 24 hours. If your email software does not display this link you will see directions to copy and paste a url (http://...) in your web browser.

Another benefit of having a my.indeed account is once you have confirmed the email address for the account you will not have to confirm any alerts created under this account.

How do I stop my Job Alerts?

Click the "Cancel" link at the end of every Job Alert email.

If you have a my.indeed account you can also manage your Job Alerts using the my alerts page.

My alert is not giving me the jobs I want. How do I edit my Job Alert?

Click on the "Edit" link at the top of the alert email to change your search. Edit the keywords in the 'What' box and/or the location in the 'Where' box and click on Update to save your changes.

If you are a my.indeed user, you can also edit your Job Alerts on the my alerts page. Here you may also add, delete and pause your Job Alerts.

Why aren't I receiving my Job Alert emails?

  • Job Alert emails are only sent when new jobs that match your search are found. You can edit your Job Alert to get better results.
  • Be sure that you have 'alert@indeed.com' as a safe sender for any spam blocking software.
  • Check your spam, junk, or deleted folders. Job Alert emails may have been moved automatically.

I accidentally canceled my Job Alert. How do I recreate it?

Unfortunately we can not recreate a canceled Job Alert, but it is easy to create a new one.

My Job Alerts only show me 20 results. How do I see the rest of them?

Indeed Job Alerts are capped at 20 results per notification. When you click the 'all matching results' link you are taken to our website, which shows all matches for your searches, both old and new.

If you sort the search results by date the first matching results will be the new jobs mentioned in the email.
