Application Methods

The Application Methods add-on allows selecting different job application methods on per job basis, users can enter one or more emails to which job application notifications will be sent, an URL to which the Apply Online button on job details pages will redirect or if you have LinkedIn integration configured to allow users to apply using LinkedIn.

To use the add-on download it using the link at the bottom of this article and install from wp-admin / Plugins / Add New / Upload panel.

Applications Method for Administrator

When creating or editing job posting from wp-admin / JobBoard / Jobs at the bottom you will see section “Application Methods”

You can see here three options:

  • Apply  Online form
  • External URL
  • LinkedIn


Apply Online Form

This method will display the application form. Applications will be sent to all listed e-mails. You can add how many e-mails you want. It looks like in the image below.

External URL

This method will display the apply button, which redirects the user to an external page where the user can apply. It looks like this.


If you want to use this method, you must go to wp-admin/(WPJB)Settings/Configuration and find LinkedIn and you must add your API Key/Secret Key, and when you write this key’s you must slide under and select Allow applications from LinkedIn

Application Methods in the Frontend

In the frontend users posting a job can also take advantage of the Application Methods, in the [wpjb_jobs_add] form the Application Methods will look and work similarly as in the wp-admin panel.


You can download this extension from the Client Panel.

  1. Is there a way of customizing the text that appears on the button that links to an external application site?

    Currently it says “Visit Application Site” and I would like to customize that to say instead “Apply Now”.
