The fourth step in the guide to the WP Job Manager plugin will show you how to add a job type to go alongside your job listings.

Step 1) Login to the WordPress Dashboard.

Step 2) Choose Job Listing -> Job Types from your Dashboard’s sidebar to reach the job types page.


Step 3) The left-hand side of the page is where you add a new job type. Here, you can enter the name, description, parent (if the job type falls under another category and is a subcategory) and the slug (the URL friendly version of the name). Once completed, click on the blue button marked Add New Job Type.


Step 4) On the right-hand side of the page, your job types are featured, and from here, you can edit, copy and delete them according to your wishes. Each category has a job count too, so you can keep tabs on what jobs are still available in each category, in which is the most popular.


Step 5) When jobs and job types are created, they are featured under Job Listings -> All Jobs. From here, you can view all the details, from the type of position, the position itself, the date of posting (and who posted it), the expiry date of the posting and the status (active/unactive/position filled).


The next step of the guide will focus on How to Manage, Edit, and Arrange Job Listings in WP Job Manager.
