Indeed is known around the world as one of the best platforms where job seekers can find, apply and get jobs.
For so many years, it was hard for job seekers to stay in touch with updates about job openings and opportunities. It was also hard for employers to find suitable candidates for open positions.
However, Indeed has done very well to close the gap between employers and job seekers.
If you own an account with indeed.com and you want to delete it, you have come to the right place.
