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.

Brokerage firms and financial planners can spice up their websites by displaying real-time stock market data on their pages. The add-on of stock data can help investors look out for current and future investments in the market instantaneously.  The prospect of coding that kind of constantly refreshed information can seem daunting but luckily we found a solution to add on to your website. We wanted to share two plugins – one free and one paid – that make it easy to embed accurate and relevant stock data directly into your WordPress website.

Show Stock Quotes

Show Stock Quotes is a free plugin that lets you display quotes for up to 20 stocks — updated in real time — on your WordPress site. Each quote shows the stock’s price and percent change, with a link directly to the company’s site. The widget pulls the data from Google Finance and it’s updated constantly.  There’s also an optional RSS feed.

If you want to display more than 20 stocks, you can just create a workaround by embedding the widget multiple times.

WP Stock Ticker

If you want your site to show even more market and stock information, WP Stock Ticker offers a ton of options for $25. It features access to unlimited stock codes and currency pairs, which you can display in a customizable scrolling ticker.

The ticker is easy to set up. Simply enter the stock symbols in the plugin’s settings and choose how it displays. When users click on a specific part of the ticker, it pulls up graphs and charts on that stock’s history. The plugin pulls its data from Yahoo! Finance but then caches it in WordPress so it’s not retrieved from Yahoo every time the page loads.

WP Stock Ticker offers unique customizable options that are easy to navigate. And it’s an easy way to put a professional polish on any WordPress site.

So give us a call or send us a note — we’d love to show you how you can utilize stock quotes on your own website.
