How-To: Setup your own job board using Jobskee

JobskeeSetting up your own job board these days is now a breeze. Thanks to Jobskee, a simple open source job board that let’s you setup your own job board easily.

But first, why would you need your own job board? Because it’s expensive to post to commercial job boards! One ad can cost you between P2,500 to P5,000 and would only last you maybe 30 days. With this investment, you can setup your own job board that you can use again and again and your only additional cost is hosting it every year (cheaper that one job ad.)

What is Jobskee?

Jobskee is an open source job board simple enough that everyone can use it.

It was inspired by some of the best job boards online: We Work Remotely, Authentic Jobs and jobberBase.
