Improving your Recruitment Website - jQuery Modal Boxes

Posted By: Thomas Shaw, 10:55pm Tuesday 29 September 2009    Print Article

How many times have you been redirected away from the webpage you were viewing and then unable to find that webpage again?

When it comes to improving your recruitment website, modern web applications (such as jQuery modal boxes) allow us to interact with the user without the hassle of reloading the whole page or opening a new window.

This can drastically improve the users overall experience with your website because they are not redirected away from the initial webpage they were viewing!

We want to keep the user on the job advert page so they don't have to click through the search process again. As you can see with the examples below. We can use this for our login, refer a friend or application forms.

There are a number of jQuery scripts available including Facebox, Lightbox, Thickbox, nyroModal, jqModal, SimpleModal, etc.
