Your website can be a great avenue to recruit new talent. We recently found, an easy to use job management tool to help increase awareness about open positions — WP Job manager.

The WP Job Manager plugin allows managers to add on information such as job title, job description and location. The tool also allows job seekers search quickly for the type of industry field and location of the job. By default the plugin allows applicants to apply by sending an email to the company’s HR personnel.  After the application is submitted, company’s can send out automatic emails thanking the job seeker for their application.

This tool has a variety of add-ons that can enhance the number of applicants and interest in the $19 to $39 range. The WP job manager can allow the job posting to advertised or  have the posting redirected to a bigger employment websites such as Indeed  or Career builder. This plugin can allow applicants apply with  LinkedIn, XING or  Facebook. If employers want to build a standard form with name, email and resume attachment, you have to buy the forum add-on which is a standard for many job sites. Are no currently open positions? You can keep interest by allowing job seekers sign up to receive job alerts automatically after the company posts another job opportunity.

For association websites, this plugin gives access to different members to submit job openings they may have in their company. Overall this is a great plugin — it has so much potential to help many websites who are searching for employees.

Have you ever been put on hold to have a doctor’s office, rental company or a venue check their calendar availability? Companies can cut their time on the phone and save customers time by showcasing available calendar booking times online. We found a great booking availability calendar and request system called Booking calendar, to can help businesses and customers coordinate with each others calendars.

Booking Calendar allows businesses to set the times and dates for the bookings months in advance. Customers have the capability to enter in their information to request or cancel bookings from the time slots available. An automatic email is sent to the customers thanking them for booking request and asking to reschedule if a customer cancels. Businesses are also emailed at the time of requests and cancellations.

Booking Calendar tries to customize features needed for bigger and smaller companies. When requesting a time slot customers are able to enter in their payment information through PayPal, Authorize.Net, iPay88 and Sage Pay. If a customer cancels after a certain period, the customer can be charged a fee through their payment account for medium business accounts. For large business accounts, coupons can be added on. Booking Calendar also has multiuser accounts to keep track of the roles of the users and changes they have made to the calendar. Although there are different features for different business sizes, this plugin can help rental companies and venues are able to view what customers need and when customers need it. With a few clicks, the company can respond using this plugin.

For the construction industry, showcasing previous project work and specialty services provided can give the company credibility when drawing in prospective clients and employees through their website. The WordPress Estate Theme, is a great platform to allow construction companies to show off the completed (and in-process) projects. It even makes it easy for the companies to add new projects to the site without any web programming knowledge.

What was once a gap between cities, now is a bridge that connects communities and make commutes easier for citizens. Why not show that off on a website? With the Estate Theme, construction companies are able to showcase their work on the website and add a portfolio section. Estate Theme lets companies add various sections like About the Company, Current and Previous Projects, Future Careers, and Services offered. This theme is also responsive so the site will look great on mobile devices.

From the portfolio to social media links to testimonials of previous clients and current employees, it has the possibility in letting a construction company grow and build their online presence.
