Flexible Options for Job Application and Payment Plans
Surely our Feature Requests panel is one useful avenue to hear what we’re lacking. Early this month, we have received feedbacks about providing more flexible options for job application and payment plans. Here are some excerpts:
“I think you should offer the ability for a client to buy a time limited subscription where they can post either unlimited or a specific number of jobs for a specific amount of time.”
“Allow the option to redirect to an external URL when the applicant hits Apply.”– Adrian McDonagh
“…You could also just put application instructions in a box where the company could put instructions (whether it’s email or go to a link, etc.). I guarantee if you make this change you will get a spike in sales – because people that know job boards know that this is a must have.”– J Smith
A significant volume of similar feedbacks reached our inbox and chat board, so we knew these features have to be launched in the latest possible version of JobEngine. So here comes JobEngine 1.0.6 with your much requested add-ons.
Multiple Ways to Send Job Application
With no other options available to receive applications from applicants before, employers might have felt we held them in chain (so they were asking freedom). With JobEngine’s revised job application scheme, we gladly say to employers – Ask your applicants to submit their applications the way you want it.
You read it right! Whether you want job seekers to submit their resume’s and needed documents through email, or redirect them to your application site, or ask them to go through a different process, JobEngine now provide all these options.
When posting a new job, select which option is the most suited and convenient for your company. Our new “How To Apply” field will show you these choices to tick:
– Allow job seekers to submit their cover letter and resume directly
Provide an email address and receive your applicants’ submissions directly in your inbox.
– Job seekers must follow the application steps below
Enter your application site or write your own instructions in the box to lead job seekers to your application process.
More Flexible Payment Plans
How about a payment package that will allow employers to post more than one job? For frequent employers, sending payments every time they post a job can be a hassle. So JobEngine modified its payment plans’ settings to let job board owners create flexible payment packages for its clients. Whether employers want a short or long-term subscription or just the “pay as you post a job” option, job boarders can offer a payment plan that is best suited for their needs.
The improved feature now shows a field for “Number of Jobs” wherein an administrator can set how many jobs an employer can post under the plan.For instance,an admin created a plan that costs $100 for 5 featured jobs that’ll available on the site for a period of 60 days each.If an employer subscribe to this package, then he just have to pay one-time and post 5 jobs whenever he wants.Each job will be active on the site for 60 days regardless when it was posted.
Just the same, job board owners can set the plans as Featured or Regular.
Other things we recently fixed include:
Bug #190: Missing languages
Bug #186: Revise: “application sent” confirmation text
Bug #184: Mobile version: Missing D on “Featured”
Bug #182: Mobile version: Tag span appears on confirmation email
