We chose Joombah over the competition first because of user reviews, and second because of its interface both for end users and administrators. We are quite happy with our choice.

Customer support continues to be helpful, always courteous, and VERY patient with my questions.

Pros: Works out of the box if you are doing a standard job board. Setup was quick and easy - even for a newbie. Also, being able to choose whether or not our members receive this tool for free or if they pay-as-they-post gives us the ability to grow without having to purchase new software.

Cons: You can't change a field from drop-down to text-only without being more experienced. We would prefer that the City field be text only because no database can have all the possible cities (although Joombah does come close and has been diligent about updating their databases).

A+ Customer service - I trusted the other reviewers and they were right! I have never experienced such timely responses for the several questions this newbie had about this component. In my opinion they went out of their way to answer all of my questions quickly and professionally (even when it was not their software causing my problem).

We are using this extension in free mode to help our membership during these difficult financial times - offering job posting for free to companies in an effort to get our members working again.

I have been doing HTML website design for over 10 years. I have been working with Joomla for only 2 years and since Joomla and the components do most of the work for me, I still consider myself a newbie.

Joombah is simply amazing! We were originally shopping outside the realm of Joomla for a PHP based career program. (My boss has an irrational fear of Joomla due to some less than stellar classified ad and employment extensions used in the past). Once I came across the look and feel of Joombah, it made me realize they have set a new standard for the types of extensions that should be more common for Joomla.

The install was easy. Once we were completed, we were thrilled!

Best of all, the CUSTOMER SERVICE ROCKS! In fact, I started in the forums and ended up having one-on-ones with the developers who customized a module to work around our server's limitation! I have never seen this kind of service, even with several thousand dollar maintenance contracts!!!!!!!

You cannot go wrong with this extension!!!!!!

You won't believe what a great service and professional team this is, had a few adjustments I needed for this package and it was perfectly understood and quickly adjusted.

Wow, thank you

I only hope you guys are busy with some other great development work I can consider integrating into one of our projects.

Thank you so much.

First off dont even look any farther if your looking for a job board in joomla. I am not a coder I am not a programmer and I hate purchasing extensions or components that require me to be either of those things to make what I purchase operable.

When I buy something i expect it to work like this. I download to my computer I upload to my website and it works nothing else. No bugs to fix no support no nothing. If you hear from me I generally am pissed off and want my money back.

This was not the case with Joombah Jobs. I originally spent the $105 on the Jobs Basic becuase I figured the higher price tag meant a better product. That couldn't have been a more wrong assumption. Where Jobs Basic lacked Joombah Jobs excelled in EVERY Category including support.

Like EASYBLOG Joombah Jobs appreciates my/your business and when a problem did arise they stepped up to the plate and immediately resolved it. Even though it wasn't their fault. It had nothing to do with their code or product it was my hosting company with some htaccess.file. Once fixed Joombah Jobs has worked outstanding.

It is very sleak & lightweight. It comes with a small price tag & a alot of top notch Support. It is very customizable and is ready out the box. You do not need any coding knowledge or programming skills. Download then upload then let your customers use it. Very easy very nice and exactly what i was loooking for.

And a side note since paypal is so quick to shut down merchant accounts or freeze accounts I wanted a job board with a google checkout plugin and this comes with moneybookers, googlecheckout, & a host of toher paypal alternatives. I wish it had alertpay, but it has everything else. Very nicely down and well thought out extension.

I dont write reviews unless the coder deserves it by going above and beyond and the admin at joombah jobs deserves all of our support as they actually know what the public wants in a product.

Thank you admin I truly appreciated your time, help and product. Your competitors dont stand a chance as long as your around.

Well it certainly took me long enough to get around to posting my review, but all i have to say is that this is the one to choose if you wish to have a flexible, robust and high quality recruitment app. Really, i cannot give Joombah enough kudos, i did try a few other options prior to using Joombah, but it is well worth the cost for a good product. Great job Joombah Team on the recent upgrade to 1.3.

Excellent component with flexible possibilities!
1. Work with base of the Countries/States/Cities for not ENGLISH-SPEAKING users is extremely unsuccessfully realised.
2. Very high cost and rare releases. Releases leave more rare, than expires 6-mounth membership. For example, at me membership has expired on July, 26th. Version 1.3 left on July, 25th. But with the notice on the new version I have received the letter on July, 27th. Very unpleasantly also it is insulting.
It seems that the company has specially postponed letter sending. Petty! Has decided not to renew a membership!

Thanks for your review and for using JoomBah!

1. As I searched through our forum, I have asked if you have added the Countries/States/Cities to the language file. Had you added them to the language file, it would have appeared in non-English text. For your reference, it was posted on 28 Mar 2011 (thread #2142)

2. We are so happy about our development team who has released over 18 versions (including betas) in just 9 months and this cannot be rare. The release notes are at,installation;change_log/

Actually we do not intend/decide to postpone the release our extension based on the expiration date of our members and in fact it is tiresome to track them as we have thousands for subscriptions. It's our practice to send Newsletters on Monday as we did for this release as well. We also had issues sending bulk Emails on Saturday due to our webhost's limitation.

I'm sorry, we do not have any intention to insult our members. We will be happy to see you back.

Thanks for understanding and your review.

I am using the 1.23 beta version and I cannot fault this component or its support. Its a delight to use as a business owner. I am not a developer, yet I was able to easily integrate this into joomla and jomsocial, having never used Joomla before. And that's amazing!!

Any issues and the developer has provided me a solution within hours of my post, during their business hours and provided in a way that I can easy edit the code having never done this before.

I have tested all other job solutions for joomla and non joomla ones, and nothing comes close to meeting my requirements as an already established professional job service for the film & TV industry.

If you are building a professional system, then the very minimal cost for this component of $110 for 1 years support is not worth mentioning. (you can buy 3 mths)I would not want a component of this calibre to be free, as it needs to be supported. it is growing in functions and if its free the developer could not support it at the rate they do.

Thank you for providing such an advanced, yet easy to use system.

Great product and excellent support! All questions were answered very quickly. First time user of Joomla/Joombah and I was able to have the site up and running very quickly. Easy to customize. Overall great product!!!

I must disagree with @musti751.

Firstly the information you gave regarding the $110 is incorrect. You can choose to pay for support membership (3 month or 6 monts only). Your usage license never the info.

Secondly, the support is fantastic. All my questions (4) excluding 9 pre-sales questions were answered within one working day (excluding weekends).

I must agree though that this is the best, fully featured joomla jobsboard out there.

I purchased some other compnents, but all of them fell short at the end.

This product is brilliant, fully featured and very well supported and well worth the small membership subscription for support if you need it.

Keep up the good work!

i'm quite experienced J! user and i've built more than one J! web site.

* it has great features
* it has more than one buying options

* it's 110$ (yes. it's 110$ if you want to use it for one year)
* support is terrible. I've sent a support request one week before but they did not replied my support request yet
* You can not fields to search forms including job search form and resume search form. their search forms are fixed
* This component comes with limited templating options. Editing the colours is quite difficult
* You can not use J! modules with this component. for example, You can not add a login form to this component

I was expecting more from a component which i've paid 110$
Owner's reply

Thanks for your review.

Thanks for appreciating that our component has more features and payment gateways.

You have mentioned that it is $110 for a year, we never force our member to go for one year plan, and we don’t have one year plan in first place.

About the support, I searched up and down, left and right in our support forum at with your username and there isn’t a single post from your end. Can you please provide us the thread link you posted in our forum?

To edit search forms and CSS, our support team would have supported had it been raised through our forum.

Login modules need not be inside the component and it can be any where positioned in the template.

If you require any assistance/support, kindly raise through our forum.

This is the 4th recruitment component I've paid for. I installed it 2 days ago and have played around with it quite a bit since then. Every time I look I find something else that makes me realise that this is a very, very good product. At $35 it knocks the socks off the others I've tried in terms of price and the level of functionality. I've not needed the support forum but a look through a few pages worth of posts shows that the developer is very responsive to support requests.

I have to say that this component is far too cheap for what it gives you. This is much more than I would expect. If it had been $150 I would still have thought it was good value.

Restores my faith in open source!

This entire component and it's myriad of add ons loaded up as smooth as butter - I did the typical developer fiddle to see if I could work it out ... but when I used the instructions it was a dream to set up.

Very cleverly written and really in touch with employment consultants, lots of flexibility - and merges fabulously with jomsocial too ... Can either be a chargeable solution or just a header hunters system

I don't know how you guys can do this for the price ... thanks very much and I for one will be watching out for your future developments!

Nope and they don't know me from Adam!

I have never felt compelled to write a review but after trialling quite a few Job board extensions I found JoomBah a no brainer.

The support via their forums is quick and very good.

If you are looking for a clever Job extension I wouldn't bother looking any further than this it's really great.

This Component works perfectly right out of the box and it's features are exactly spot-on.

I had to make a few minor adjustments to suit my needs(changing State to Province etc.), and the support I receive from the Joombah team is very professional and very fast.

Brilliant Component, Brilliant Support.

Don't be confused from the price of this Component ($35.00 ). This is a great component. Your website is ready to go after installation.

Great Component and Great Support.

Thank you for this !

I have been searching JED for the last few months to come across a Job Component that is perfect for my website. I tried almost all the Job Components available but none were even remotely close to what I have been looking for.

Finally I am glad that I came across the perfect solution. This component is highly configurable (even though it works perfectly out of the box) to your websites requirement and is actively developed.

There may be one of two minor shortcomings (which component hasn't?) but with prompt support that I received, its more than a deal.

Even some of the best components you will find develops over a period of time. For a component as new and fresh as this one, the features that it provides is already impressive. We just have to see how soon it makes to the Elite Club of components - it has the definite potential in the near future!

I have to say that I was very impressed by the quick response by the builders of this component when it came to updates and trouble shooting. I have purchased quite a few components, some have never contacted me by email to update me on new or improved product, or bugs. This is a shame, customer support is the most important part of continuing support. With continued development, and improvements to this component it is worth the money I paid.
Just my thoughts.
