Go Fetch Jobs (for WP Job Manager)

Description

Official site / DEMO site

Instantly populate your WP Job Manager site with jobs from the most popular job sites and/or job aggregators. This handy plugin fetches jobs from RSS feeds and imports them to your jobs database. Pick your favorite job site/job directory, look for the jobs RSS feed, paste it directly to Go Fetch Jobs and instantly get fresh jobs in your database!

To help you quickly getting fresh jobs from external sites, Go Fetch Jobs comes bundled with ready to use RSS feeds and detailed instructions on how to setup RSS feeds for job sites that provide them.

Easily categorize bulk job imports with job categories, job types, default custom fields values and expiry dates.

Besides the usual Title + Description + Date usually provided by RSS feeds, Go Fetch Jobs can also (optionally) extract and auto fill job companies logos, company names and locations, if that information is provided by the RSS feed.

It also comes with the ability to save import rules as templates so you can later recycle/re-use them for new imports.

FAQ

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.

Why do I sometimes see logo thumbnails from imported jobs in the backend but not in frontend ?

Since some of the logos pulled from RSS feeds are from images stored on CDN’s they cannot be stored as native WordPress featured images in the media library.
This means that if your theme does not use the default WPJM the_company_logo() function to display jobs on the frontend these logos will not be displayed. You’ll need some custom
changes to be able to do that. I can help you on this if you need it.

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

Only the Premium plans provide this feature through the Smart Assign option. In the Free version you need to choose one category that will be assigned to all jobs on each bulk import.

How do I activate my premium plan after purchase ?

After your purchase, deactivate the Free version and download and activate the premium version. Under Go Fetch Jobs > Account, click ‘Sync’ or the Activate Plan button.
If the premium plan is not activated immediately please try again later since it can take a few minutes until the server is updated.

I like this plugin. It is easy to use, fast. You can get easily the jobs from WP Job Manager plugin populated. If you work on the development of jobs website this plugin is pure gold and saves you time. Thanks for this plugin!

I don't often rave about how things should be done, but if you ever want an example of a great plugin and fantastic aftercare you get it here. functionality and user experience are great. It does what is is supposed to do very well. Post sales support really makes an effort to resolve issues first time. If I could add a 6th start I would.

Exceptional support from Bruno on the development team. We were having problems with failed importations, for which he provided a fix to our database after being given admin access, and proactively pointed out a possible conflict with another plug in. Then when we were having problems with the importation of a particular job feed (which was the error of the creator of the feed, and no fault of the plug in's developers), he provided us with some custom code to eliminate the troublesome field from the import process. Both within a couple of days. Above and beyond support if you purchase a full license. Highly recommended!

Go Fetch Jobs is the perfect aggregator for my job board business. Any questions I had, Bruno and his team helped me. They even upgraded the plugin to meet my job board needs. I recommend this plugin to any job board looking to fill their job board consistently and correctly. Great plugin!! Nate
