I am interested in starting an online job board. What would be best - to buy or to build a job board software?
I already purchased a domain to start a free US job board. I am very confused about whether I should buy or build a job board software initially. I have seen several vendors selling job board software between $160 - $400, and I have used 2 free trails. They are fine for a start-up, but I want to hear advice on whether to buy or build as I am actively looking to start immediately.
Please advise me with the best way to move ahead. Thank you.
Yes, I'm with Jennifer on this one, there are scripts available for you for free that you can utilize without the need to buy one. Joomla extensions being one option.
There are also plugins for Wordpress like "Job manager" and "Osclass job board"
Finally if your hosting panel is cPanel and you have Softaculous available within it, you can install Jobberbase directly from there without the need for an external CMS:
This one deserves a look: http://www.joomlart.com/joomla/extensions/ja-jobboard
It works on a Joomla platform. I've used a lot of Joomlart's templates and extensions and been happy with them.
