About this collection…

At one time, there only existed a small handful of sites where you might go to when searching for a job or posting for an opening. Sites like Monster, Craigslist, and Indeed made up the bulk of the traffic on both sides – and practically dominated the online employment marketplace.

However, as time has gone on and the industry has become a little less consolidated – more opportunities have opened up for those wishing to take a little slice of the traffic. While new players like LinkedIn and others have emerged as the dominant force, there is still plenty of room for other players in the field.

Many have found success taking the niche route and creating sites that cater to specific industries or demographics, while others have internalized their employment practices by creating either mini-sites or sections within their existing websites to gain new talent.

What once might take months of development in coding, designing, and building out a jobs site – can now be done in a matter of minutes with the right set-up.

WordPress (along with several independent designers and developers) has given anyone the ability to set up their own jobs site (portal, directory, board, or listings section) – with just a remarkably small investment of time and money.

There are now a handful of truly world-class job-related WordPress themes that will give you all of the features and functionality you might need – whether you’re setting up a new site or creating a section on an existing one.
