Go Fetch Jobs

Live Demo

Simply put, it’s the ultimate plugin to easily populate your JobRoller site with real jobs from the most popular job sites and job aggregators. This handy plugin fetches jobs from RSS feeds and imports them to your jobs database.

Pick your favorite big job site, look for the jobs RSS feed, paste it directly to Go Fetch Jobs and instantly get fresh jobs in your database! It also supports scheduled automatic imports so you can put your job site in full auto-pilot!

Please read more below. For more information and feature details please visit the official site.

New!

– Extract FULL job descriptions, company and company logos directly from the providers site (select providers only)
– Improved Smart Assign (auto assign job types/categories based on jobs content)

 

Very Complete

Besides the usual title and description, Go Fetch Jobs can also pull company logos (*), job companies and job locations for selected providers. You can also set job categories and job types and custom field values for  the jobs being imported. You can even set it to feature the jobs being imported.

There’s plenty of options to control and identify your job imports and you can even save your import settings as templates. These templates, beside simplifying future imports, can be assigned to automatic imports, available through schedules. You can create unlimited schedules to automatically and regularly import jobs. Just specify an existing template, the schedule recurrence and watch your site being refreshed with new jobs on a regular basis.

(*) If you want to display company logos on job listings as in the demo site, and add a ton of new features to your JobRoller site check out my other plugin named FXtender Pro.

Seamless Integration

Each imported job seamless integrates with your JobRoller site but since these jobs don’t provide an explicit ‘How to Apply’ field the ‘Apply Online’ link will be hidden. Instead, under the ‘How to Apply’ title, your customers will see a (customizable) ‘Click Here To Apply’, link, that links directly to the external job.

Ready to use RSS Feeds Providers

Go Fetch Jobs comes packed with ready to use RSS feeds providers grouped in categories like: Design, Blogging, Gaming, IT, Marketing, etc… Providers include The Guardian, Smashing MagazineCareerjet, and many others. Just click the feed you want to use!

Why are jobs not showing full job descriptions ?

Some sites don’t provide full job descriptions on their RSS feeds. This is usually intended to have users still visit the original site to read the full description.

Why don’t all jobs show a logo after importing?

Logos are not available in all RSS feeds and unfortunately, RSS feeds that provide them are still the exception.

How do I import jobs so that they are all automatically assigned to the matching category?

To have imported jobs assigned to their most relevant categories/types you need to enable *Smart Assign* option. This option will scan each imported job looking for terms that match your existing categories/types.

Manual Installation:

  1. Download the Plugin zip file
  2. Open WP Admin dashboard -> Plugins -> Add new -> Upload
  3. Upload and activate the Plugin from the Plugins page.
  4. A Go Fetch Jobs menu item will be available on your admin sidebar.

  • The ‘Smart Assign’ feature will now search for taxonomy terms (job types and categories) on any custom RSS feed tag hooked to the ‘goft_jobs_providers_valid_item_tags’ filter
  • Introduce custom function for reverse geocoding locations (fixes some location ‘Anywhere’ issues where a location exists)
  • Company logos from imported jobs are now displayed on the job listings backend page

Sebet always helping and response time is awesome!

Outstanding plugin, very helpful developer

This plugin has been featured on the Advanced WordPress group on Facebook, and is a very well designed and useful upgrade. If you run a jobboard, this modest expenditure will pay for itself over and over and over. Two thumbs up!!!

5 stars
Great plugin - Great support

Excellent plugin. My recommendation is to use it not just with the most popular feeds but with the HR consultants firms feeds. You must make your research but there are plenty out there.
Great plugin

    Hi,

    just bought the plugin, but once I have paid via Paypal I cannot download the zip file https://api.appthemes.com/plugins/download/1.0/go-fetch-jobs/ : file not found

      Bruno Carreço

      @johnjohnjohn, first of all thanks for your purchase,

      I’ll check the issue with the download files and will inform you right away.

      • author
        Bruno Carreço

        @johnjohnjohn, please try downloading the files from your custom dashboard again. Let me know if you have any other issues.

  • johnjohnjohn

    Thank you I have downloaded it.

    I am trying the plugin on a offline test website, and I cannot get the description of jobs offers, I only have title and link to original website.

    Same result with the url given as exemple http://www.linkup.com/rss/?q=wordpress

    This with latest versions of WP and Jobroller.

    • author
      Bruno Carreço

      @johnjohnjohn, thanks for reporting that issue. It is now fixed. Please re-download the plugin and you should have the imported jobs up and running.

  • johnjohnjohn

    It is now working, thank you, but I only get an excerpt, not the full description, even if the rss feed is full. Sorry to ask questions here, but there is no forum yet.

    • author
      Bruno Carreço

      @johnjohnjohn, glad it’s working now. Yes, the support forum is still being created.

      As for the excerpt, that really depends on the jobs source site. Not all sites provide a full job description on their job feed. You can check the information provided on the feed yourself by copying and pasting it on your browser URL address.

      The fact that the job description is sometimes short can actually be good if you are partner/affiliate with the source site since users will need to click on the ‘read more’ link and read the full details on the original site. In this case you could add your partner ID/affiliate ID to the source URL’s under the related Go Fetch Jobs field.

  • emasanl

    Hi Bruno ,

    Nice plugin , can i use this for the hirebree theme allso?

  • author
    Bruno Carreço

    Thanks @emasanl.

    No. You can’t use ‘Go Fetch Jobs’ with HireBee. It’s tailored made for JobRoller and since there are several job sites providing feeds is the perfect match.

    Anyway, if there’s more requests for a similar plugin to other themes, like HireBee I can make it happen in the future 🙂

  • emasanl

    Thank you for answering @Bruno

    I would love to have such a plugin for hirebree.

  • Bala

    Will this plugin works fetches jobs from Linkedin as well? Can we add more job sites to fetch the feed?
    Can it be used with any wordpress themes?

  • iamgrewal

    I got error as

    Fatal error: Using $this when not in object context in

    @iamgrewal, thanks for you purchase.

    Please make sure you have the JobRoller theme running before activating the plugin.

    Please let me know if problem persists.

  • iamgrewal

    Yes, JobRoller theme is running and is activated. Only after activating Jobroller this plugin was activated.

  • author
    Bruno Carreço

    @ iamgrewal, I’ve found the issue. I’m currently working on a fix and will release it asap. My apologies for the inconvenience.

  • tradeamillion

    is your demo working?

  • author
    Bruno Carreço

    @tradeamillion, @zulogogo I can see the demo working. What problems are you having?

  • author
    Bruno Carreço

    @Bala, replying to your questions:

    “Will this plugin works fetches jobs from Linkedin as well?”
    Only if LinkedIn provides any type of RSS/XML feed containig jobs.

    “Can we add more job sites to fetch the feed?”
    Yes. As long as the job site provides an RSS/XML feed containing jobs.

    Here are some examples of sites that provide job feeds:
    http://www.linkup.com
    http://www.careerbuilder.com
    http://monster.com
    http://www.idealist.org

    “Can it be used with any wordpress themes?”
    No. It’s meant to be used only with JobRoller.

  • Andy

    It is working now thank you. Will this work with the map plugin?

  • author
    Bruno Carreço

    @Andy, I’m not sure what map plugin you’re referring to. Go Fetch jobs is meant to work with JobRoller and any other plugin installed. If anyone finds any incompatibility/conflicts with other plugin please just let me know.

  • tradeamillion

    can you automate the import like weekly ?

  • author
    Bruno Carreço

    @tradeamillion, Yes.

    You can see the available recurrent options in the demo, on the schedules page:

    http://bruno-carreco.com/wpuno/gofetch-jobs/wp-admin/post-new.php?post_type=goft_jobs_schedule

  • author
    Bruno Carreço

    @tradeamillion, answering your previous question:

    “can you fetch rss from indeed?”
    Yes, you can fetch jobs from Indeed. And actually, you can copy&paste the URL generated by Indeed on the Indeed find jobs page and use it on ‘Go Fetch Jobs’.

    Here’s an example URL:
    http://www.indeed.com/jobs?q=wordpress+developer&l=

    If you paste it on your browser address you’ll get the related jobs from Indeed. If you paste it on ‘Go Fetch Jobs’ it will also recognize it. Note, though, that not all job sites will work like this and instead, you’ll need to use the provided Jobs RSS/XML feed.

  • iamgrewal

    Has the issue been resolved ?

  • author
    Bruno Carreço

    @iamgrewal, I’ve sent you a private message a couple of days ago with a fix. Can you please check your PM inbox?

  • zulugogogo

    Hi, is there a help file or something in order to get the RSS information – eg, Web design/New York/NY/Full Time/50,000 – 60,000

    How do you do this in Monster? there does not seem to be any help in getting this in the first place – i have tried indeed and again i dont see where the rss feed is for me to copy it.

    can you advise – or create an interface that can help with getting the info.

  • Rawat

    Can this plugin be used in jobapp child theme? and can we set the external link open in new tab?

  • author
    Bruno Carreço

    @zulogogogo, you can find Monster Jobs RSS feeds in this page: http://jobsearch.monster.com.hk/rss_index.html.

    Note though, that monster don’t seem to provide a way to refine the RSS feeds. You can only get job RSS feeds from their pre-set list of categories.

    As an example, LinkUp does provide a way to refine each feed: http://www.linkup.com/b/web-design-jobs-in-new-york.html?sort=r. You can see the ‘Job Search RSS Feed’ link on the right sidebar.

    Anyway, in a future update, I’ll add some additional tips on how to setup feeds for some providers. Thanks for the suggestion.
