I currently use the free JobList component as it suffices but I'm considering the full version for a more comprehensive featured site.
I use it for posting vacancies for the recruitment side of my business. Many years ago I paid a developer around $150 to create a very simple component to allow me to do this, so to have a free component that does more is excellent.
It's also refreshng to see an active support forum as I nkow if I invest my time and effort into populating and using the component it will be updated as required as and when Joomla evolves.
Verdict: Top work.
We have come across a few minor things that needed to be fixed and the support team was quick to fix everything. We have been blown away by how responsive the developer has been. It has been the best money spent on the whole site.
The extension itself is great for what we needed. The Twitter plugin is a huge help to us and eliminates that extra step of posting a job and letting people know about it. JobGrok does it all for us.
We are a website that allows job seekers and employers to find and post festival jobs, internship, and volunteer opportunities. The features that JobGrok provides are the key to the success of our website.
Bottom line, best product out there for job postings. We tried the other free versions made by other developers first and they nowhere compare to Job Grok.
Well done, JobGrok! And Thanks!
Only think I would like to know is that is it possible to create custom categories for job listings rather than the general ones provided in the component.
I can't say enough good things about Tri State's responsiveness and dedication to the success of this product. Even though it is already ready for prime time, I am confident it will continue to mature because of the developer's commitment. I only wish all Joomla developers were this committed. BRAVO Tri State. We love ya! Your software is worth every penny.
When I was having problems with their site and getting the information I needed, within an hour of sending them an email with the problem, they responded, wanted to know what happened and most importantly, wanted to know where the process of me having a positive experience with their website appeared to go wrong. This was a staircase of steps above the status quo in customer relations. It is obvious they wanted to not only solve a problem, but they also wanted to know how they could fix and IMPROVE ON a problem that could be hindering others as well.
I strongly encourage others to consider this vendor in your choice-making.
The jobs look nice on the site and the additional module allows me to display current positions on pages other than "Current Vacancies".
The only thing I had trouble with was with my choice of WYSIWYG editor - the window isn't big enough to fit all of my choice of editor in making it a little difficult to edit jobs.
Overall, a simple and elegant solution to a common requirement in many websites. Well done.
If you need something like this, check it out. It really is farging great.
I needed some very specific things to get things right witin my template, Bob was on the ball, want can i say but support A1. I was that impressed with the Employment litings componant, I also use the employment listing module and the employment application form.
Its perfect for sites that want to list very specific job opportunities either within their company or within a niche industry/company. Again perfect and much more is in the future works.
This should be highly rated! Nice work :)
I guess my only gripe would be if you could add an 'Apply Now' feature on the listing, which links to the application form for the other component.
I really wish I could take credit here. Instead, I'll recommend "Mastering Joomla! 1.5 Extension and Framework Development", this has definitely been a huge help.
My one critique would be that it's not easy to use as a quick reference, I usually end up flipping through the pages to find what I need to know.
