Job Center PHP or Wordpress Configuration
June 12, 2009 5:12 AM   Subscribe

Looking for simple job application center online application (php is a plus and easy intergration with wordpress or plugin even better) so a client can simply post jobs and have online users fill out an application. Any suggestions?

Most of the wordpress plugins I found were for Job Boards which won't work.

Using wordpress I might be able to achieve this with:

* Create a custom page template that list all items from job category.
* Use cforms II plugin to create one generic online application.
* Have HR write job description as posts to job category with "apply link" to application form in the body.

Would this work? Are there simpler methods?

You might want to have a look at Zoho Creator, which allows you to design webapps in a kind of drag-and-drop fashion. You can either host your app on their site with more limited template options, or embed the forms/views directly into your own. I'm using it for a project and so far i'm really impressed with it.

Try searching for "applicant tracking system" -- you probably don't need to reinvent the wheel.

I used JobberBase to set up a job board for one of my sites. It doesn't integrate with WordPress -- I have it running on a subdomain linked from my WP blog. It does, however, allow for job posting and applications online. I have limited PHP knowledge and I was able to tweak it to do exactly what I wanted.

try jotform.com to easily create your own simple application and post/share/embed anywhere.

Thanks for the answers so far. Will check into Jobberbase, it might do the trick. Also thanks for the search term chesty_a_arthur! Might help find a more suitable candidate.
