Welcome to AJ Simply Jobs Board PRO - Joomla Component! (v1.6)
The AJ Simply Jobs Board component makes millions of jobs from SimplyHired.com (Simply-Partner.com program) accessible and totally integrated on your own Website!, so you can easily transform your website into a powerful Job Search Engine, or alternatively you can choose to hide the search functionality and create a Job section (or multiple sections) showing specific Job Listings that always have jobs that are relevant to your web content.
All you have to do is provide your own API key of your Simpy-Partner account (It's FREE to join if you're not a partner) so you can start taking full advantage of their revenue program for clicks on sponsored jobs and jobs posted through your Website. If you're not familiar with the Simply-Partner program from SimplyHired.com, please take a look at their Partner FAQs here: http://support.simplyhired.com/categories/20144838-Simply-Hired-Partner-Solutions
Here's how it worksSay you have a Joomla website that provides information and resources about Automobiles. With AJ Simply Jobs Board, you can instantly offer more than just information to your visitors, simply install and configure the component to provide relevant job listings of "mechanics", "car sales", "transportation", "drivers", etc, etc...
This can be achieved by providing a default search keywords such as the ones mentioned in the previous example. You can also be more specific and provide a default location for the search or assign values to the multiple Advanced and Special filters. For instance, you can show job listings of "car sales" in "Los Angeles, California" as a default search.
The Component can be used in many different ways, for instance:
- as a full Job Search Engine ,
- as a Job Board Listings with fixed search parameters (No Search boxes if you don't want to show them),
- as multiple Sections in your site (i.e.: one section showing "Sales Jobs" in a specific city, another one showing "Marketing Jobs" in another city, and so on),
- as a Job Board Listing for a specific Company or Location,
- and much more (see the Tips & Tricks Section in the Administration Component for more information)...
