    Hi all,

    I'm trying to figure out a way of importing job listings from various websites into my own wordpress site.

    I'm using WP all import currently, but can't figure out importing from URL.

    I would be extremely grateful if someone could suggest a better method / plugin I can use to achieve this?

    Many thanks in advance!

    You cant import directly from a Job listing site. You will have to scrape those data and save in a file and then you can use with wp all import.

    You can't directly import them.
    Use a data scraper to convert all the data into database format (xls, cvs) and import using the plugin
