07 Feb. 2018 Case Studies
Searching and recruiting the best quality candidates has become more complicated in today’s time. Rishabh Software’s Online Recruitment & Job Portal Solution has helped the major employment service provider to connect both job seekers and companies on a single platform. The solution follows mobile-first approach and allows candidates to search for jobs in various categories like location, benefits by the company, type of work, available perks and more. The solution was built using Drupal 8 and also serves as a job marketplace powered by Drupal Commerce.
In today’s evolving and competitive environment, finding jobs and searching the right candidate is a significant pain area for companies looking to grow their team. Job advertisements on offline and online channels are gaining popularity with the growing mobile users. Many job portals, mobile apps, online employment exchanges, consultancies have emerged to solve the need, but companies are experiencing new challenges like saving time to assess the candidates, achieve cost efficiency, and to short-list qualified candidates in limited time. Our Europe based customer was facing a similar challenge, and Rishabh Software proposed to develop an engaging job portal using Drupal 8 that delivers a unique user experience by connecting employers and job seekers on a single platform. The portal will be using mobile first approach and is built using Drupal 8. We also developed the portal to address the companies to post job advertisements targeting the right candidates, and minimize the time to search.

The portal was developed to serve three primary users – Portal Administrator, Job Seeker, and Companies.
