Jobs board

Just wondered if anyone has developed/developing an add-on to list jobs for recruitment sites.

I have a few clients that would like to use this function and would love to be able to use C5 and not Wordpress!

I'm not aware of any add-on like this, however it does seem like a fun project. Can you list your needs for it?

- Who's adding the jobs? Admin or user submitted?
- What information you want displayed?
- How the job seeker interacts/contacts?
- Etc...

Thanks for the reply Lucas

Jobs would be posted by admin(s)
First page tabular to display
Date Posted \ Job title \ Job type \ Location

Second page to display full job details including contact details.

Going forward it would be nice integrate search, upload CV & registration form.

Obviously it would need to fit everyone's needs or most of them.

Cool. Well, I can start tinkering on this as a side project, however, I should note that I can't guarantee a timeline since I don't have a ton of free time. I will consider working with some other developers on it as a joint project.

No nothing has happened with it as far as I know, I would still like an add-on for this though as clients are asking for it. There are probably ways around it using tables type layouts and forms to upload CV's etc.

A dedicated add-on would be a real bonus though!

seems like you could modify the forums to do this, kind of like c5 does.

I can only speak for my self but its a yes from me. A few clients have asked for this now and it is a nice feature that Wordpress has but C5 does not.

Many thanks, David

Why do you need an add-on?

You could just create a job page template. They just add a page which has pre-loaded elements and edit/add content.

The page list block is used to list the jobs available.

One of my clients also uses the Simple Blog Post add-on and post jobs as news items under a job category. So you get a summary and then click through to the full content. This combined with the Tweeter add-on posts it to twitter.

Just a thought.

one advantage of going with a dedicated Jobs Board add-on is that is comes with filtering, so you can narrow down the job listing, and is integrated with a job application page:

I too need to have a site to post jobs. I found this package on C5 called Tony Jobs Board. I purchased and added it. However being new to C5 I am wondering if there is anyone else out there who is using Tony Jobs Board. I need help on customizing the job posting page in the dashboard to the requirements for the kind of jobs I want to post on it. Thank you

I am working on the Tony Jobs Board package. I managed to customize the job postings to my requirements. My next task is to send the Employer who posted the job listing an automated email when someone applies to a job. Do you have any suggestions on how do I do this?

I'd recommend customizing the form block, and adding the email send logic within the overrided controller.

how did you customise the job listings display? I have it installed and working fine and I just want to add the JOB ID to the main page that lists all the jobs?

you should use the jobs board support forum for questions like this:
http://www.concrete5.org/marketplace/addons/jobs-board/support/...

you'll need to edit the job search block's view.php. There's an example of how to output that attribute within the job listing page type (the view, not the controller).
