Go Fetch Jobs is a plugin meant to help job boards getting fresh content using simple RSS feeds or API’s. It can be a great tool for new job sites struggling to have new content and visitors. It’s also a great way for established job sites to have regular quality jobs added to their site.
Since Go Fetch Jobs imports jobs directly to the jobs database, imported jobs are seamlessly integrated with “regular” jobs added by job listers or recruiters. It’s an alternative to API’s used by some job aggregators that will only pull and displays jobs stored on their remote database.
It has the ability to import not only the basic data from RSS feeds but also meta data like the job location, job company names and logos, on selected RSS feeds.
Additionally, with Go Fetch Jobs installed you can fully automate your job imports using automatic schedules using your saved import templates (premium plans only). You can put your site in full auto pilot and keep it fresh with quality jobs, every day.
Below you’ll find more details on the available features. Note that not all features are available in the Free version. To find which features are available on each available version please check the Features page.
Just pick your favorite job site, look for the jobs RSS feed, paste it directly to Go Fetch Jobs and instantly get fresh jobs in your database!
The UI is simple and provides tips and descriptions about each option and how it works.
To help you quickly getting 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, including big sites like jobs.theguardian.com. An RSS builder is also provided for providers that allow customizing the RSS feed.
Easily categorize bulk job imports with job categories, job types or Go Fetch Jobs auto-assign the best ones based on the job title and content. Custom fields values and expiry dates/job duration can also be filled with default values.
Custom RSS Builder (premium only)
For existing RSS providers that allow customizing their feeds, Go Fetch jobs provides a handy RSS feed builder that allows you to customize the feeds without leaving your site. Just choose your keywords and preferred locations (if available) and see the RSS feed being built in real time.
The import process will import the following information from each RSS feed:
- Job Title
- Job Description
- Job Published Date
- Link (external link)
Other Fields (not always available):
- Job Company
- Job Location
- Job Company Logo
Additionally you’ll be able to optionally add more details to each bulk of jobs being imported:
- Set job type and category
- Set as featured
- Set default values for custom fields
- Set expiration date/duration
- Set jobs author
- Specify a max limit of jobs to import
- Specify a date interval
You can control and customize your job imports setup and save it as a template. These templates, beside simplifying future imports, can be assigned to automatic imports, available through schedules. You can create unlimited schedules to automatically and regularly import jobs. Just specify an existing template, the schedule recurrence and watch your site being refreshed with new jobs on a regular basis.
For further control over the jobs being imported you can filter jobs by a date interval, keywords, and limit the number of jobs to import.
Schedules (premium only)
Schedules are one of the most powerful features in Go Fetch Jobs since they allow you to automatically import jobs on a regular basis (daily, weekly or monthly) using an existing import template.
On each schedule you can further limit the jobs to import and assign them to a particular job lister.
Schedules are a great way to keep your job site fresh with new jobs!
