What is Indeed Apply?

Indeed Apply Sync is an easy, mobile-optimized application process that helps employers get more applicants, provides a better experience for job seekers and allows for applications to sync back to an employer's ATS. This feature enables job seekers to apply for jobs directly on Indeed, using their Indeed resume, and provides employers with the ability to auto filter candidates with screening questions.
