Next SmartJobBoard release is launched and ready for download. In this new 2.4 version we’ve significantly improved the software and added a few new complex functions. These features will be great advantage for international and niche oriented job sites.
Below I’ll describe the most important functions of the new release.
Resume Visibility option
Job seekers can choose whether his resume will be visible to all employers or only to selected employers or to all employers except the selected ones.
It’s useful in case job seeker doesn’t want his resume to be visible by some companies. E.g. the one where he currently works. Or he might chose to provide access to his resume only for particular list of companies.
Admin can turn on templates highlight mode in admin panel (Edit Templates section). When this mode is turned on the system will display the site front end with edit icon near each template displayed. If you hover mouse over that icon, template file name will be displayed. If you click on that icon, template file will be opened for editing.
User can make Boolean search by including Boolean operators, such as AND, OR and NOT into the search query. This function is useful for advanced users who need to make complex searches.
Multi Currency System
Multi currency system is an great advantage for international job boards, or for job boards in countries with several currencies. Admin can add unlimited number of currencies to the system and set exchange rates. Currency list will be displayed to user for salary field, and system will automatically convert salary value to the default currency.
Notes for saved listings and applications
User can add his personal notes for saved listings for later review. Employers are also able to add personal notes for applications received. This function is useful when there are a lot of applications and saved listings. It should help user to organize his data.

After a few months of work with designers and HTML coders, we’ve finally finished integrating new design for our web site!
We’ve choose green and grey color scheme, since these colors are nice and not aggressive. The logo we choose includes green leaf, which also makes positive feeling.
Hope everyone will like new design. If you have any comments or suggestions, please leave it here.
SmartJobBoard team announce translation partnership program launch.
SmartJobBoard constantly seeks to translate its software to new languages. To accomplish this we invite native speakers of different languages to participate in our Translation Partnership Program.
Please see details here.
Rather much time has passed since we released anything new. And this is because we were doing our best to include most innovative and requested features to our system to release version 2.3. There weren’t many improvements and modification in the system core, so this version is quite stable in comparison with previous one. We’ve also added a new template which at our opinion designed more professionally then previous ones, so there will be more choices for look and feel of your site.
Traditionally in this blog I’ll describe most useful and innovative functions that we’ve added. Please also visit our change log to see the full list of new functions.
Private messaging system
Well I guess everyone have already got the main idea based on the head line. This system allows job seeker and employer to send private messages to each others. They will see these messages in My Account section. The main advantage of using this system for communication between site users is that they will not know each other contact details. E.g. for some reason job seekers might not be willing to show his email, phone number or other contact information, but still need to communicate with employer to know some information he’s interested in. Using private messaging system he’ll be able to do that.
Banner Ads Module
Almost any web site owner needs to place banners on his site. After many requests from our customers we’ve finally added banner module which allows administrator to add image or flash banners and display them in different places on the site.
Search by company section
This function allows job seeker to search companies registered on site. It gives better visibility to employer profiles and more ways to search jobs for job seeker. This function also includes alphabetical index which simplifies the search.
Priority listings are displayed above the average search results and market with different color. Site administrator can charge users additional fee for placing priority ads. This gives you more options in monetizing your online service.
Also don’t forget to visit our demo page to view these features in action!
