Job Board- A light weight, SEO friendly WordPress theme

How I got the idea?
One week back, an interviewer asked “Can you make a job board theme” ?
I said- yes!
Unfortunately, because of some consultancy’s involvement, I didn’t join them but the idea was knocking my mind up and down.

I thought in a simple way and created a simple job board theme which could be capable of posting/ removing job opportunities via backend. It took few days and night, I was not having another work, so was focused on this specific task. Outcome was very pleasant, satisfactory and bug free.

I created one custom post type named as jobs, and later created some taxonomies to achieve the job listings, taxonomies are ‘location’ and ‘job type’.

What an admin can do:

  • can add multiple HR/ Recruiter emails in backend on which job application will be delivered
  • bounce back email notification can be changed via backend, dashboard > contact > apply now > Mail 2 > Message body
    currently – “Thank You! Your application has been received by our HR Team, We will update you shortly.”
  • can add Google recaptcha for spam protection*, dashboard > contact > integration, enter recaptcha site key and secret key
  • can change logo in customize, dashboard > Appearance > Customize > Site Identity > Logo/ Favicon/ Site Icon (transparent background preferred)
  • can change Homepage Recent Openings Title/ Jobs Page Title, Homepage View All Openings Link, Blog Page Heading, dashboard > Appearance > Customize > General Setting
  • can add blogs
  • 100% editable cms
