Job search module released for 5.x

This module provides your sites visitors to browse and search jobs, or post their resumes for employers/recruiters to see. It also allows job seekers to apply for jobs. In effect, your site can be a mini monster.com or hotjobs.com.

It can be setup for one single firm (e.g. a recruiting company), or as a general job site (e.g. like monster.com).

Jobs and resumes (CVs) are two different types of content. They can be a simple type (no extra fields) or you can use CCK to create more sophisticated content types (e.g. you can add whether the job is a full time or part time, permanent or contract, years of experience, ...etc.).

You can also use the location module to setup proximity searches for jobs by zip code, city, or jobs within 25 miles of zip code 90210.

Resumes can also have attachments (e.g. resume in Word or PDF format).

Of course, jobs can be assigned various categories, such as jobs by location, jobs by industry, ...etc.-

Recruiters can view all jobs in the system.

Site visitors can browse jobs, either by date, or by category (as set above), or with anything that views can do.

Visitors can register on the site, and then are allowed to post resumes, and apply for jobs. Using extra modules, you can setup the site so that recruiters/employers would have to pay to post jobs on the site. You can do the same for job seekers if you so wish.

When someone applies for a job, they can select from resumes they have created. If they do not have resumes, they will be prompted to create one. Once they apply, and email is sent to the person who posted the job, with a link to the resume, and the user's profile. The resume will also be placed in a queue for review.

Optionally, resumes are kept private and only a recruiter or the author can see it. Other job seekers cannot view other people's resumes.

Search functions allow users who can view resumes to search them, and the same applies to jobs as well.

New features

  • Allows node types jobs and resume to be CCK, and hence custom fields can be added (e.g. permanent or contract, years of experience, ...etc), without changes to the module. Our friends in Britain can now name the resume node type (CV or Curriculum Vitae).
  • Provides an "apply now" link for jobs. When a user clicks on that, they select one resume that they created previously to apply with to this job. If they have no resume, they will be prompted to create one.
  • The application process sends an email to the user who posted the job, with appropriate links, as well as queue the job for the posted in a list.
  • No patching of core is needed for resume privacy. An add on extended module does that now.

The module is available now for download from drupal.org.
