best free wordpress job board plugins 2024

Learn to create a career page on your website with dynamic job listings and filters! Everything available free of cost and described in 3 easy steps.

A career page on your website would help you in several aspects, like having a central space for job posts and openings that your existing employees can share with their network. A common link will also express the credibility of the information if you install a system that displays job posts and accepts applications, increasing your productivity and showing how professional your business is.

Step-by-step instructions to create a career page

In this tutorial, we are sharing a plugin that helps you create a job listing page, accept applications and files, and let you ask custom questions for easy screening, schedule interviews using Google Meet and Zoom integration, and convert them into employees.

Here are the step-by-step instructions on how to create a nice-looking career page on your WordPress site. Before beginning this step, we advise you to prepare the text and images you will use on the job posts and the career page.

1. Create the career page

Create a blank page on your WordPress website. We will use this page to assign in the Crew HRM plugin later.

2. Install and Activate the Crew HRM Plugin

Go to https://getcrewhrm.com/ and download the plugin. Then, navigate to your WordPress Admin Dashboard > Plugins > Add New and upload the zip file you have downloaded. Lastly, activate the plugin.

3. Configure the settings

The plugin will show you a message to assign a page to display the job posts right after installation. Assign the page you have created in step 1.

The Crew HRM plugin’s default settings are enough for most companies. But you should review the settings before making it live.

Supply:

The career page created by Crew HRM Plugin

This is the default look of the career page created by Crew HRM. You can customize the look and feel with CSS. You can also override the templates by overriding the source code. To get instructions for that, please contact the Crew HRM team!

This page does not load all the filters and search fields by default. You need to enable them from the settings section on the Job Listing Page.
