The idea is pretty simple and a great one. If you are someone who walks around the town and gets to see different Job openings posted in your locality, you can take their pictures and post them on Job Spotter to get rewarded. Pretty simple, right?

Maybe you are walking past the street, and you see hiring signs for cooks posted on the walls of a restaurant. You can take a picture of the sign and post it to Job Spotter to earn a reward.

Now coming to the Scam part, Job Spotter is an app owned and operated by the famous  hiring platform called Indeed. Do you have any doubts now? I know you don’t. They made the process of finding new job opportunities easier by automating the process through a reward plan.

They launched the Job Spotter app, letting people take photos of hiring signs and posting them on the platform to earn rewards. This way, job seekers can find local businesses that are hiring people. You can take photos of the ‘help wanted’ signs posted on the storefronts of your locality and earn Amazon gift cards as rewards.

Here are details regarding how the app works –

Step 1: Download The Job Spotter App  

You might already have an idea about how the Job Spotter app works if you have gone through the previous section. However, I have simplified it for you. The Job Spotter app is available on both the App Store and the Google Play store.

You can use the app irrespective of the type of OS your device is running on. You need to allow the location settings of your device to  run the Job Spotter App on your device. The app needs to verify the location of the business that is advertising a  job opening. So, the app will require the location service on your device.

Step 2: Go Through The Job Spotter Field Guide  

Whether you are side hustling on a job spotter or casually using the app, you need to go through the field guide of the app. Why? Because the field Guide offers you guidelines to help you effectively submit the job advertisement and earn the most amount of rewards.

Step 3: Take Photos Of The Job Signs And Post   

The next step is to take photos of the hiring signs in your areas and post them on Job Spotter. You can take photos of job openings in local coffee shops, restaurants, and local stores. However, you need to keep a few things in mind –

  • You Have to take two photos – one of the hiring sign and another of the storefront with the hiring sign posted on it.
  • The photo of the hiring sign should be focused enough for the job seekers to read all the details described on it.
  • The job you post on Job Spotter must accept applications both in person and via email.
  • Job Spotter will reject your photos if the photo contains any people or if the photo is taken from inside a vehicle.

Step 4: Redeem Rewards   

Job Spotter will take at least 2 to 5 days to accept your submission. You need to collect enough rewards to be able to convert them into Amazon Gift Cards. A minimum balance is required for this conversion. Also, the processing of the Amazon Gift Cards will take almost two weeks.

You cannot convert your rewards into cash and withdraw them at will. Job Spotter does not have that kind of reward system.

How Much Money Can You Earn Using The Job Spotter App?

Honestly, there is no limit to how much you can earn using the Job Spotter app. The amount of money you make depends on the number of Job Sings you can find and post them successfully on the Job Spotter app. The number of points you get for each submission depends on how fast you can redeem them for Amazon Gift Cards.

According to the people who frequently use the app, you earn around 150 points for each of the job signs you post on Job Spotter. 100 points equal $1. There are different reports of earning different amounts from the Job Spotter app.

While some UK user claims that they have made $3.05 by earning 305 points from one job, generally, users earn $0.50 on average per submission. So, if you think clearly, you get $0.5 for taking a photo, which is not that bad. You don’t even have to waste more than a minute to take a photo and post it on the platform.

Pros & Cons Of The Job Spotter App  

Pros & Cons Of The Job Spotter App

There are both pros and cons to using this app to make money by posting job advertisements. Here are some of the pros and cons you need to know –


  • It requires minimal effort.
  • The app is available on both iOS and Android devices.
  • You can use the app in 60+ countries.


  • They have no cash payments.
  • There is no certainty about the points you will earn for each job ad.

Bottom Line   

No, the Job Spotter app will not make you rich. You cannot think of this app as a career opportunity as well. Also, the number of job openings in your area might not be too much for you to earn enough points from them. They also don’t also offer any cashout option for the points you earn. You can only convert them into Amazon Gift Cards.

However, if you are using it casually or thinking of it as a small side hustle, you will love the return this app offers to you. I hope that this review was helpful. If you have any additional questions, you can reach out to us in the comment section. We will answer as soon as possible.
