Job Search with Avionte Staffing Software

If you’re already an Avionte customer you’re probably aware that they offer the ability for job seekers to search your job listings online.

For example, if I use the following link I get a list of job results which looks like the following.

Creating a Job Search Kiosk

Next, we need to get the job search results on a kiosk so we can make them accessible to the public.

This can be easily accomplished by using KioskSimple to securely run your Avionte job search website from a kiosk.

KioskSimple runs in Microsoft Windows, so you’ll need to use a PC or tablet running Windows.  If you need help selecting a device please don’t hesitate to contact us.

In the next section we’ll cover how to configure KioskSimple.

Configuring KioskSimple

In this section we’re going to cover configuring KioskSimple to load your Avionte job search listings.

First, you’ll want to download the free trial of KioskSimple.

After you run the installer, select the desktop icon for configuring KioskSimple and you’ll be greeted with a quick start wizard.  It’s REALLY quick, I promise.

Simply enter your Avionte job search listings website (for example “https://ksr.aviontego.com/portals/Portals/JobBoard/JobSearch.aspx?CompanyID=KSR“) and click continue.

That’s it for the configuration!

Close the KioskSimple configuration tool and use the Start KioskSimple icon on your desktop.

While KioskSimple is unregistered, you’ll need to select the option to Try the Demo.

Finally, select the option to run KioskSimple in Test Mode so you can quickly test your website.

Your job listings website will load within in a few seconds.  After you’re done testing press ESC and you’ll be prompted to enter a password.  While KioskSimple is unregistered, any password will work.

While in Test Mode you can also simply reboot the device and Windows will load normally.

When you’re ready to deploy your job listings on a kiosk for use by the public, you’ll want to select the option to Lockdown Kiosk and configure some basic security options which we’ll cover in the next section.

Kiosk Deployment

In this final section, we’ll cover securely deploying your kiosk running your job listings for use by the public.

Remote management is a great way to remotely administer and monitor your kiosks.  We’ve had a great experience with LogMeIn Pro and TeamViewer and recommend either product to our customers.

Lastly, you’ll want to configure KioskSimple to run in a secure manner.  In most cases, this simply involves changing the default password of “kiosksimple” to something more secure and restricting the webpages users can visit.

To change the password for exiting KioskSimple visit the section in the configuration tool SECURITY->SECURITY SETTINGS and set the new password under the section Exit KioskSimple shown below.

Finally, save your settings and close the configuration tool and you’re ready to run KioskSimple in Lockdown Kiosk mode for deployment to the public.
