How to rename user roles (Employer, Candidate)?

To rename user role, for example Employer, go to Appearance > Editor, you will see a style.css edit area (make sure you are using a child theme). On the right side switch to edit the child theme functions.php file, add this code:

<?php function jobseek_replace_role_name_employer() {
    return 'New Name';
add_filter( 'jobseek_registration_role_employer', 'jobseek_replace_role_name_employer' ); ?>

Accordingly, to rename a Candidate role (or other role), use the same snippet, but replace the "employer" with "candidate" word everywhere - one the first line, and in 2 places on the last line.
