Resume Manager lets you setup a lightweight resume posting site, built upon WP Job Manager. Being shortcode based, it can work with any theme (given a bit of CSS styling) and is really simple to setup. The admin UI is very similar to WP Job Manager, listing submitted resumes and allowing admin to approve, edit and delete.
The resumes shortcode outputs resumes in a list, proceeded by a search/filter form which is ajax powered (results are shown instantly). Access to resumes can be restricted using WordPress user capabilities.
The resume submission form collects the candidates name and contact information, websites, education and employment. If the user has a LinkedIn account, this can also be populated automatically. The candidate can add as many items of education and experience as they want, including notes, name, dates and position/qualifications. After submitting the form a preview is displayed. The preview matches the appearance of a live resume. Submitted resumes can be edited or removed from the candidate dashboard, if the candidate is logged in.
Apply to jobs with resumes
Jobs which have an email address for the application method can be applied to through resumes. A form will be displayed prompting the user to choose a resume on file and input their message which will then be emailed to the employer. The employer will also get a private link to view the online resume on-site. Logged out users, and users with no submitted resumes, can be prompted to submit one and apply to the job after the resume is submitted.
Single resumes show all the collected data and also show a “contact” button which employers can click to view the email address to contact the candidate. You can restrict who can view resumes and contact data user WordPress user capabilities.
