I will shortly be updating the downloads area with ResumePress and would love to get some feedback.
Link can be seen here;
First of all I must appreciate your dedicated efforts to come up with amazing & quality themes.
I just spent few min with resumepress and looks fine ..
If I understand right , this theme is meant for job seekers to have their resume online right ?
Usage is job seekers can publish their resume url whereever they want and also employer may find their resume url either search on website or search engines ..
1. How to generate revenue ?
2. I am planning for job locating service for job seekers, for which I need to charge for working on each resume. In my case how can charge for job seekers who need job locating service. ?
3.In resumepress, is employer able to communicate through site message system ?
4.Is resumepress features for finalized or are still in works ?
Thanks again for your efforts
ResumePress is a online community theme for WordPress that lets visitors built online resumes to share with clients, employers, friends and family. Each resume has its own unique website link so users can share their resume links online and bring traffic to your website which could then convert into new members.
With ResumePress, a visitor signs-up for a free (or paid) account and can create one or multiple online resumes. Resumes can contain portfilo content such as Google maps, PDF files, images and videos.
The website admin can create multiple membership packages (free and paid) limiting access to different content depending on membership levels. You can charge visitors to create resumes and limit the how much content is displayed on the resume page.
Theme featured are not 100% and suggestions are still welcome.
Resumepress features will be all related to job seekers and not for recruiters/employers right.? Is employers need to register to contact employee ? If not, many can send spam.
I feel there should be a paid membership for recruiter/employer to communicate with resume poster. It will avoid many junk/spam/promotion e-mails to job seekers.
It'e better to have various levels of paid memberships both for resume poster & recruiter /employer..
I appreciate feedback from many so that this theme can evolve to amazing theme
I think one of the biggest things is an ability to connect LinkedIn to the resume, especially offering an import feature. So it auto populates fields from LinkedIn account. It saves people time.
Maybe an ability to add a video, which is becoming very popular in online resumes.
I have a question and/or request: Is it (already) possible to level subscriber/reader access per page/category and/or request membership+payment for: 1) all access 2) certain categories 3 ) other levels? In that case it also can be used for large internal companies or job agencies with more than 1 location. LA dep. can only see resume's for LA area, Boston, Boston area etc.
I tried to work with directory and classified as a basic, but was to limited. (specially with my knowledge)
--- What I include below was already discussed in another thread.
However, I believe this is the correct place to post it. I apologize for any confussion. ---
A "Re-Connect" feature similar to the one used by LinkedIn?
Some kind of interconnectivity between collegues to turn it social?
Looks good but you need to change the "community theme" on the front page... It's not Facebook! When I saw community theme I thought WOW Great! He's making a buddypress type community or something like that...
Also, you have a few typos: Under theme features - on the first line - it says: visitors built online resumes
Then the last sentence says: You can charge visitors to create resumes and limit the how much content is displayed on the resume page.
Hope this feedback helps...
This is great Mark I will definitely be implementing it.
Is this possible: have a free listing option available, then if someone/employer likes what they see in the resume, they then need to "purchase" the full details to contact the job seeker?
Here is what I observed in my last four months of job searching:
Job searchers are not keen on paying a fee to post a resume. They will however pay for a subscription that lists new job postings and employment events and news.
Job searchers use LinkedIn extensively to network but they don’t include a full resume in their profiles. They also don’t publish personal information to avoid spam, harassment, stalking, and solicitations from recruiters who want to lure them away from their current job. I agree with Mark’s comment about having a paid membership for employers and recruiters to communicate with resume posters.
Videos are popular so being able to add them is important.
Job searchers, employers, and recruiters all like to share information via social toolbars.
This is a wish: It would be nice to have a widget similar to the featured stores in coupon press. Instead of stores it would feature employers and recruiters and we could charge them a monthly membership fee for a spot. This would help both the employers and the job searchers.
I think it's important to show the last login date of the employee and if the resume is still valid or not.
Nothing more frustrating for employers to send dozens of emails to employees who already found a job or are not searching any more (auto expire)
