I love this plugin. It provides everything I need to create a basic job board site. I've tried so many plugins, but none of them have the functions that Jobs for WordPress have. Thanks you and keep doing!

Wow, just wooow. This plugin blew me away with it's simplicity yet has all the features I needed. It is so intuitively laid out. It's worth much more than some of the bloated plugins. Very underestimated, I hope they release a commercial version.

This is a really great plugin it works great, we have found many candidates using it and place a lot of roles. Only minor issue is that there is a bug with the pdf download option WP Version 5.7.2 PHP Version 7.4.16 "TCPDF ERROR: Some data has already been output, can't send PDF file"

Causes a critical error upon plugin activation. There is also an error when trying to retrieve uploaded resumes - gives a 404 error, without. It is unclear where these resumes are being stored and no error details. For example if this is caused be a file system permissions issue, there is no error message of what/where is missing.

I have tried many plugins for job listings and this one is by far the best. However, unless am missing the crucial searchable LOCATION either as a link or Category. We know location is very important to any search for a job. If there is a way a searchable location link can be added, I will appreciate a lot. Please do something, I have tried to create and name a category (location) but I just can't figure out how to link to that particular category or display that on its own. Example when a job seeker want to see available jobs in London, how can that be achieved? Otherwise, it's rich and clean.

This is a great plugin, that's also free!! If you need a simple solution, you can't go wrong here. It's nicely laid out and easy to use. It has some extra details like nice looking templates out of the box, and super easy form creator.
