How to Setup an Automatic Feed to Post Job Openings to WordPress

  1. Log in to WordPress
  2. From the navigation menu, select Appearance and then Widgets
  3. Drag the RSS widget from the available list into a sidebar so that it displays on your page
  4. In the RSS Widget, add the following:
    • RSS feed URL  into the field “Enter the RSS feed URL here:”.  In this example, we are using the demo client RSS feed of http://client.hrservicesinc.com/downloads/rss/clients/569.xml
    • Give the feed a title.  In this case, we used “Apply to Our Openings”.
    • Select how many jobs to display
    • If desired, you can also select the “Display item content?” and/or “Display item date?” checkboxes to display more information about the job opening.  (If you do not select these checkboxes, only the job title and location will be displayed.)
    • When finished, Select the Save button
  5. Next, view your blog to verify the layout and the content
  6. If any changes are necessary, return to WordPress’ Appearance Widgets to make the modifications.
