With the number of people looking for work online or thinking of changing their career rising, there has been a growing demand for employment and career focused websites. To help meet this growth, job and employment specific WordPress themes are being created that are perfect for displaying career advice or posting listings for vacancies either internationally, across the country or locally in a specific area.
The emphasis for any job posting site should be on the content and the design needs to be as clean and minimalist as possible. Over the top job site WordPress themes with elaborate designs and complicated layouts detract from the main focus of the text and what is required in term of qualifications and experience for certain positions.
In addition to this, responsive job site WordPress themes have an added edge over the rest. With millions of us now using mobile technology on a daily basis, tablets and smartphone’s have become one of the main methods of accessing job listings on the move and an employment WordPress theme that is compatible with these devices will be much more popular than one that isn’t.
The fundamentals of a WordPress theme for job sites should be as basic as possible. A clean and easily accessible layout combined with simple search features, neutral colors and a straightforward way for employers to submit their vacancies and have them displayed.
This is why we have put together this list of 19 of the best job and employment WordPress themes that are currently available. They include both premium and free themes so that everyone can find a theme to suit their needs and their budget. Because WordPress themes can look mightily different when up and running than they do from a screenshot, we have included a link for a live demo for each theme so you can see exactly how it will look when operational.
