Adds job listings and allows visitors to search, register and apply to jobs on your WordPress site. Job applications can be customized and triggers can be added to perform actions based on applicant responses.

Requires a CATS Applicant Tracking System account as most of the functionality relies on their publicly available API. All jobs on the listings page are pulled in from your published jobs and use the job applications that you create. All visitor job applications are sent back to CATS which fires email notifications and adds them to your database.
