  • Even though I love job boards since they will get you a job if you keep them under observation, I still think it is a bad idea to create way to many job boards. It gets out of hand and more difficult to keep track were all of the jobs end up.

    With that said it might be a good idea to create niched job boards instead of the classic one with WordPress and design.

    Templatic's Job board is one of the best. It has the advanced functionality yet easy to use.

  • Dennis

    Any suggestions if I'm interested in starting a Job Board where Recruiters can pay to see profiles/resumes?

    • Cyrus

      Not quite sure if I have seen a job board that does that. But I\’ll look for it.

    • Hi Dennis,
      I would recommend you to check http://wpjobboard.net/ for that!
      It's not a theme but a plugin, but has plenty of options and I'm happily using it on my site.

    Great list. I found this premium jobroller childthemes, http://www.jobthemes.com . they look fantastic.

  • Do you know which of these themes allows you to charge users (job seekers) to access job listings? Jobroller and JobJockey do not, I know. Thanks!

    • Cyrus

      I am not sure. Most of the themes I have tested are about charging employers and not job hunters.

  • Guest

    Don't buy nothing from AppThemes because their support is the worst and their themes have so many problems with them. The don't work as described on their site and false claims that is can do this or that!

    • Cyrus

      We have had OK experience with their customer service. What was exactly your issue? Could you be more specific?
