What is WP Job Manager?

WP Job Manager is a lightweight plugin for adding job-board functionality to your WordPress site.  Being shortcode based, it can work with any theme (given a bit of CSS styling) and is really simple to setup.

Shortcodes allow you to easily output individual jobs in various formats, lists of jobs, a job submission form and even an employer dashboard which logged in users can use to view, edit and delete their job listings.


A Familiar Admin UI

The admin UI lists jobs in an organised fashion listing useful job and company information and access to actions such as edit, mark filled, and delete. It also provides search and filter functionality.

Any user familiar with WordPress will find this instantly recognisable and easy to use.


Filterable Job Listings

The jobs shortcode outputs your jobs in list format, proceeded by a search and filter form. This form is ajax powered so results are shown instantly. Filter by category, job type, keywords and location.

Searches also display an RSS link which allow job seekers to subscribe a feed containing new jobs matching their search.


Frontend Job Submission

Allow employers to list jobs on your site from the frontend. The forms allow employers to input job details, including job description and location, and also add details about their company.

Each listing can be assigned an email address or a website which job seekers can use to apply to the job.

Employers can preview their listing before it goes live. The preview matches the appearance of a live job listing. After preview, the employer can submit the listing (for approval) or edit it further.


Single job listings

Single job listings show the job description, meta data, and company information in a clean format. The location can link through to a google map, and the company box can show the company tagline, twitter and website link.

An apply button is shown beneath the listing and can be pressed to reveal either the application email address or website URL.

A few reviews from happy users

When I heard that mikejolley was creating a job board plugin I had great expectations, which I am happy to say WP Job Manager lived up to.

I’m using version 1.0 which only came out 5 days ago, and already blown away by its flexibility and programmatic approach compared to some of the other plugins I tested. Highly recommend!

Mike has created an excellent, lightweight and modular WordPress Job Board plugin that I’m happy developing 3rd party plugins for.

WP Job Manager does exactly what I needed, but where I’m really impressed is how well it’s templated so that you can very easily customise it via your theme.
