The Job Blog

After taking over a similar, abandoned domain, our team began The Job Blog project. The goal was to create a website that provides information and resources related to HR. It is targeted to two main audiences: HR personnel, and individuals at any point in their career process. Whether someone is looking for a job or currently employed, or they work in Human Resources, The Job Blog is a way to learn and stay up to date on HR topics, ask questions to solicit advice or answer questions others have, and communicate with experts or other employees in similar situations.

The website was started from scratch using a lightweight theme and a simple, content-focused design. The two main areas of the site are the blogs and forums. The forums were created using a well-tested plugin that allows users to create accounts to post topics and comments to share experiences with other users. This plugin was configured to integrate with the theme’s layout and architecture. Using tags and categories, separate blogs were created: one for Careers (those employed or seeking other jobs), and one for HR personnel (anyone that works in HR). The ability for different authors and reviewers to post articles was also added to demonstrate subject expertise.
