Job Board Features

The Front End

This is the part that is visible to the general public - candidates.

  • Search for jobs, filtering by location, salary range, industry category, status (permanent, contract, etc) and keywords If keywords are used to search, results can be ranked with the best matching jobs first
  • View and apply for jobs. Parodia can be configured to require candidates to register as a candidate and upload a CV/resume before making an application
  • Register as a candidate
  • Upload one or CV/resumes to the database for searching by recruiters (candidate must be registered first)
  • Create a "search profile". This is a saved search that is automatically run at regular intervals, with the results emailed to the candidate
  • View profiles on employers and recruitment agencies advertising vacancies on the site

The Recruiter Area

Recruiters can sign up via a page available in the front end. If the site has been configured to support ecommerce payments the recruiter can make payment and have their account activated in real time. Alternatively the site administrator can be notified of their sign-up, and activate the account manually.

  • Search CV database for suitable candidates, filtering by candidates preferences for location, industry, job status, as well as filtering CVs by keyword
  • Add, update and delete/disable jobs
  • Add, update and delete "questions". These can be attached to jobs, so any candidate applying for the job must answer the questions as part of the application
  • Update recruiter's profile, including uploading a logo
  • Purchase additional packages of job posting credits and CV viewing credits
  • View previous purchases
  • View statistics for how many times each job has been viewed, and applied for
  • Create "consultant" accounts. This enables a single employer or recruitment agency to have one account on the system but to setup multiple users within it

The Backend

The backend is exclusively for the use of the site owner/operator. Multiple users can be setup and permissions defined so that (eg) sales staff only have access to customer records but no access to candidates or site configuration.

  • Allocate packages of job posting and CV viewing credits to customer accounts
  • Search customer records (by ID or name) and login as any customer (useful for customer support)
  • Search candidate records (by ID, email address or name) and login as any candidate (useful for customer support)
  • Define packages of job posting credits and CV viewing credits
  • Change any of hundreds of different configuration settings for the software
  • Edit text on the site (eg form labels, explanations) and create or edit "custom" pages of text on the site
