A look at single job listings

Last updated on

Single job listing pages use your theme’s single.php template and expand the content area to include parts like company information and the apply button.

Displayed data

By default, this single page template shows the following data:

  1. Job Title
  2. Job Type e.g. part time
  3. Job Location, linked to a google map
  4. Job posted date
  5. Company information job (title, tagline, logo, twitter and website links)
  6. Job description
  7. Apply button

The job application button

The apply button, when clicked, slides out to reveal the actual apply link (be it a website link or email link):

If you wish to customise the ‘application’ template you can do so with a template override. See Template overrides.

If you wish to have a custom apply process, for example using a gravity form, there are some third party add-ons available.

Theming the single job listing page

If you encounter issues with your single job listing page, or want to remove something added by your theme (for example meta/author information beneath a post) you can create a new template file in your theme named single-job_listing.php based on your single.php and edit that.
