Today we are taking an in-depth look at the newly launched www.jobjungle.com.au
Job jungle boasts some advanced Joomla + SEBLOD functionality and is a
great example of many facets of the SEBLOD software. The project was
undertaken as a partnership between project leader - Loudbox Media, and
by young Australian entrepreneur William Xu, Job Jungle aims to target
young Australians looking to find work. The site allows users to search
for jobs in many different employment areas, at varying skill levels
and qualification requirements.
At a glance, the features of the site include:
- SEBLOD eCommerce
- Paid article submissions using CommWeb (The CommonWealth Bank Payment Gateway)
- 2 main user groups: Employers (who post job ads) and Job Hunters (who apply for jobs)
- Job services online store
- SEBLOD-powered blog
- Google Maps API integration for geo-tagging content for location-based search
- Search by location radius (NEW in SEBLOD 3.4)
- Article bookmarking (a feature of SEBLOD eCommerce)
- Custom front end article managers for Employers to manage their Job Ads
- Column ordering (NEW in SEBLOD 3.4)
- Fully mobile-responsive using Bootstrap 3
- ..and much more
makes looking for a job easy. Jobs are classified using multiple
criteria in the job posting process, and then these criteria are
available as search options on the search page. Finding jobs near you is
easy using the location search (with Google Maps integration) and the
brand new Search by Radius feature.
you've found a job - applying is simple. Job Hunters just need to
complete the simple application form. On submission, the employer is
notified of the new application, and the information becomes available
in their Employer Dashboard.
Employers can then rate applications and add notes for future reference.POSTING JOB ADS
Job Ad posting functionality utilises SEBLOD's multi-page form feature.
It uses a 4 step process which involves comprising the job ad,
classifying it with Job Jungle's search criteria, previewing the job (in
both full-content view and list view), and, finally, paying for your
advertisement type. Once payment is approved, the job ad's status is
automatically changed from "draft" to "published". This payment process
runs off SEBLOD eCommerce.
Posting a job
your job's appearance (this functionality is achieved using a SEBLOD
list with a live value that pre-fills the job id and then uses some
custom template overrides to display the information)
Selecting an advertisement type (each option is set up as a 'product' in SEBLOD eCommerce)
lots more functionality that you can find online. Head over to
www.jobjungle.com.au to see it all. As always, we'd love to hear your
feedback on the different aspects of this site, and hear about some of
your projects in the comments below!
