As sad as it is, the economy is in terrible shape. The unemployment rate is pretty high and many people are in search of stability. What better way to cater to their needs, than providing a valuable job board resource!

Keep in mind that when creating your own job board website, you don’t have to take the shotgun approach. Catering to every single niche is extremely difficult and not to mention time-consuming. Instead, I suggest taking a sniper approach. Find a specific group of people that you want to benefit from your product.

The following WordPress themes and plugins will not only make your life easier, but will also provide you with flexibility. You no longer need to spend thousands of dollars on a complex website. We hope this roundup of job based WordPress themes will help you with your future project. Enjoy!

I was not very sure of getting this done as a complete solution when I started. But what can I say, the WordPress community is so awesome, help is just a mouse click away when you need it.  With this theme you can host your own Job board for free. Registered users can submit job listings on your site and an admin can review and publish it.
