Home → Credits
On this page the employer can see the price list in credits for the different services on the website, the current number of credits he has as well as purchase more credits. The credits system makes easier the use of the different paid services on the website. When the employer is interested in using a particular service like posting a new job ad, making this ad featured, browsing the database with jobseeker resumes he wouldn't redirected every time to paypal (or using any of the other payment option) but directly pay with credits. The employer can purchase as many credits as he think that he will need for a selected time period (the prices for the services in credits are set by the administrator from the back office).
Home → Sub Accounts
The sub accounts can be used by the employers to create additional accounts associated to their main accounts. The employers can limit the access of the sub accounts to just some selected pages, for example only to the pages for posting jobs on the website (but for example not the ones related to payments, credits etc.) The page "Manage your sub accounts" in the employers admin space can be used by the agents to add new sub accounts. When creating new sub accounts, the agent has to enter the Username, Password, Name,
Email and Phone of the new sub account user.

From this page the Employer could modify the password he uses to access his personal administration space. After the password is modified, the employer will have to login again with his new username and password.
Home → Messages

Profile → Contact Persons
The contact persons functionality provides the ability for the employer to manage a group of persons in his company responsible for handling the job applications. The employer could add multiple contact persons (with different names, emails and phone numbers) and then assign a different contact person for each job ad he posts on the website. The employer could choose then if the jobseekers should apply only through the website or contact directly the contact person assigned for this job (and send the job applications and any included files to it directly to the email of the contact person). The list of the contact persons could be managed from the Profile -> Contact Persons page.
Profile → Logo
A company logo added to a job ad detailed view page could help the jobseekers easily identify the company and the employers to better represent their corporate image.

the first one is to choose the available job package that the employer would like to use in order to post his ad (after the ad is successfully posted the total remaining ads in the selected package will be decreased by 1)
the second step is to enter the job ad details (category, job title, description etc.) The Job Ads -> New Job Ad page should be used by the employers for posting new ads.
Job Ads -> My Job Ads
On the My Job Ads page, the employer could review the list of his current ads, modify them or view the list of the jobseekers applied for them.
Job Ads → Packages
In order to be able to post new job ads, the employer should have at least one package with at least one job ad remaining in it. From the Jobs Ads -> Packages the employer could choose the package(s) suiting the best his needs in terms of ads included, the validity of the job ads (defined in days) and its price. After a package is selected and the employer has clicked on the Buy button, the available payment options for this job package will show up. The selected job package will immediately appear in the list of the employer's packages but his status will be "Pending Validation" until a payment is done and it's approved by the administrator. Once the package is paid, his status will change in "Validated" and the employer will be able to use it in order to post new job ads.
Job Ads → Expired Ads
After a validity of a job ad expires (the validity depends on the job ads package used and the expire time set for it in days), the job ad will be no more visible on the website and it will appear on the Expired Ads page. That means that the job ad will be not automatically deleted whenever it expires but simply deactivated with the possibility for the employer to reactivate it at any time from the "Expired Ads" page and make it visible on the website again. When renewing an ad, the employer is charged in the same way as posting a new ad – the total number of ads in the selected package is decreased by 1. If no valid job ads package is available, the employer should purchase one.
Job Ads → Banners
The administrator can define multiple banner areas on the website. On this page the employer can upload a new banner and make it link either to his job ads posted on the website or to an external link. The employer is charged for posting a banner in credits (the administrator can set different prices in credits for the different banner areas, depending on their position, size in pixels of the banners etc.)

This page provides functionality for the employer to approve the job applications for a selected job ad. In order to view the applications, the employer will have to select fist the job ad from the drop down menu on this page. Then on the page listing the job applications for the selected ad, on every line/job application there are links "Approve" and "Reject" which should be used to approve/reject the job ads.

This page offers the possibility to the employer to browse the database with the jobseeker resumes (with some simple search options like searching by the jobseeker first and last names). Every time an employer opens the page having the detailed information for the jobseeker, his resume and job preferences, he is charged a number of credits (the price for seeing 1 resume set by the administrator).
Jobseekers → Search
On this page the employer can search for jobseekers in the website database with jobseeker resumes. The employer has the option to search in the spoken languages by the jobseeker, his work and education history as well as basic text search.
Jobseekers → Search (Final Result)
The jobseeker final result page shows all the available information currently stored for the jobseeker in the website database. Every time the employer loads a final result page , he is charged a number of credits set by the administrator for seeing one resume. (the employer can see the full price list in credits for the services offered on the website as well as purchase more credits on the Credits page in his admin).
The credits represent a way to simplify the employers payments and instead of making multiple small payments (when posting jobs or make them featured or post banners or search in the database with jobseeker resumes) to allow them to purchase a number of credits corresponding to their budget and then use them to pay for the different services offered on the website. The credits pricing can be set by the administrator from the Settings->Pricing page in the main administration panel. When setting the credits and the pricing the administrator can set:
the price for 1 credit, so for example if the price for 1 credit is $0.50 then purchasing 60 credits will cost 60 * $0.50 = $30
the minimum and maximum number of credits that can be purchased (if the user tries to purchase a number of credits, which is lower or higher than these limits set, the system will automatically adjust the amount of credits to the minimum or maximum allowed number)
the price if credits to make a normal listing featured (the featured listings show up always on top of the search results and with a different background) The price in credits for posting banners can be set when creating the banner areas and they can differ depending on the selected banner area and the types of banners supported in it (which can be different in size, number of banners in the banner area and its position on the front site template). If the administrator/website owner would like to run a completely free website, he may run off the payments and credits system from Settings- >Configuration Options, by setting the value of “FREE WEBSITE” to “YES”. The logged in users can always see the number of remaining credits they have at the top right corner of their admin space. To purchase more credits or see the history of the purchased credits, the logged user should go to the Home->Credits page in his admin space.
To purchase credits, he needs to click on the “PURCHASE CREDITS” link on that page and he will be redirected to the next step allowing him to enter the amount of credits and also select his preferred payment option (the payment options accepted on the website can be configured by the administrator from the Settings->Configuration Options page in the administration panel). At the bottom of this page, the user can also see the price list in credits for the different services on the website, set by administrator.
The CREDITS PURCHASE HISTORY AND INVOICES link, leads the user to a new page showing him the history of the credits he purchase and also a link for each credits purchase, letting him to generate automatically an invoice for his payment.

The employers have also the possibility to upload their logo – it will show up after on their website at the place of the default logo.
