How to create Social Job Portal like Linkedin using WordPress ? [Solved]

You need a site like Linkedin?

BuddyPress Job Manager

BuddyPress Job Manager

Well there you can find a lot of Job Sites, But why Linkedin is different ? Because It is Social.

In WordPress, creating a job board is much cheaper and easier to get up and running. Here is one of the most popular plugin “WP Job Manager“. But It lacks social features. Well in WordPress there is another popular plugin called “BuddyPress“. It is used creating Social Networking Sites. If We are connecting both plugin then we are done.


How to Connect!! Thank god there is a plugin in WordPress for It. It is BuddyPress Job Manager. It’s free too 🙂

It is very simple to use. It follows normal installation.

This very simple like other wordpress plugin:

1. Upload the plugin to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
2. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress

Well there is a pro version for it too. BuddyPress Job Manager (Pro).

Try it out and create your own job board with social features integrated !!


  1. You helped me a lot to figure out which plugin to use for my next project (which will be something similar to LinkedIn), now I only have to find a good plugin that will allow users to login/create account with their social profiles form FB, Twitter, Google or why not even LinkedIn. Any suggestions?
