JobBoardHQ overview

What is JobBoardHQ?

JobBoardHQ is a cloud-based, mobile-ready job board software which allows associations, recruiters, corporations, and entrepreneurs to setup their own custom-branded job board. The platform supports job scraping from other sites, eCommerce and recurring billing, custom content, email marketing, and more.

With JobBoardHQ’s dashboard, administrators can view all job board activity, link out to corresponding pages, and generate board activity reports. Custom pages, content, and forms can be created using the WYSIWYG custom content editor. Basic customer relationship management (CRM) capabilities enable the management of employers, with users able to track invoices and accept payments via wire transfer, check, or credit card. Job seeker registrations and activity can also be tracked. eCommerce and recurring billing functionality allow administrators to create custom subscription packages and periodically charge customers to generate a consistent stream of revenue.

For employers, JobBoardHQ provides a range of job and applicant management tools. Employers can post jobs to the board, pay for top listings, manage applications, track message histories, add company profile pages, search the resume database, and more. JobBoardHQ’s job seeker features include interactive job maps, job search, and automated job alerts. Job seekers can also create and manage their resumes in multiple formats, with support for PDFs, Word documents, and other file types.

From time to time (after going live with JBHQ) we have had a few small customer issues come up, and once they were presented to the staff, we discovered that many times they already had a solution in place, which means that they have a number of features already in place that were not documented. Whenever JBHQ didn’t already have a solution in place, they were very open to finding a solution, and if necessary, they would consider additional programming. For example: we have a customer who wanted to manage more than one account without having to logout and back in every time. JBHQ had a solution in place

Pros
A large number of features and functions that were very close to the functions that we already had with our original system. Plus I really liked that we could customize our pages, so we were not locked into a cookie cutter design. JBHQ staff is very knowledgeable about the industry standards, and the necessary steps involved for the best SEO (Search Engine Optimization).

Cons
I like that I can login (Emulate) any user, however, if I want to make a simple change to a job posting, even correcting the spelling of a single word, I first need to emulate the user. So corrections can be done, but it takes extra steps. I just wish that there was an easier way for quick access to the postings on the site

Admin Review of Job Board for Ministry Positions

Overall, we really love JobBoardHQ! It has saved us and churches precious time and resources. The reception has been overall pretty good from the users. Customer service is excellent and helps us quickly. If there is a glitch with the website, The rep is always quick to help and figure out the issue.

Pros
I like that it provides independence to many churches trying to fill leadership positions. Instead of having to wade through resumes we used to send, they can now receive resumes directly from individuals who want that position and know they have applied. It cuts out the middle man and is so much more convenient. Our job board has been really successful!

Cons
Sometimes there is confusion for those who are computer illiterate. Some churches have dually registered as a job seeker and employer, which causes error in their account. I think they do this, since register as job seeker is at the top of the page. We often have to tell churches to scroll down to register under the employer section. Another issue is that they don't realize they need to put a city with their account name. They try to put First Baptist Church, plain and simple. This of course won't let them register, because there are many First Baptist Churches, and someone has already taken that account name. We have to explain that to them at times. Also, there is a box for a requisition code when filling out job positions. I am not sure what that is for, but it has confused some when preparing the position info to post. I just tell them to leave that box blank. Can this be removed? What is its purpose?

Pros
The team at JobBoardHQ have been great for us. They are super helpful and responsive. When we have trouble or need new features created, they are open to hearing feedback, and try and help us solve problems. If you're looking to build a speciality, passive job board it is a great option.

Cons
Pretty basic functionality, limited ATS ability. CMS isn't super user-friendly; could use more drop and drag features.

Being a membership organization, one of the key benefits is for our members to post career opportunities on a site with high traffic. Since our switch, our site traffic has been up considerably, and our members have never been happier.

Pros
JobBoardHQ stepped up in a big way by meeting our complex business requirements. They easily integrated with our database, and seamlessly transitioned our organization to an incredible feature-filled career platform. The customer service second to none. Our project managers and developers have shown experience and detication to make their clients happy. The administration of the product is rich with customization which meet most business needs. JobBoardHQ has incredibly competitive rates and packages.

Cons
I don't have much to complain about. We were looking for a job platform that had a powerful map feature for easily searchable listings. While their map feature wasn't as powerful as others that we found, I believe that their strengths outweigh this weakness. In the future, I fully expect them to explore improvements here.
