Please check:

The article explains this. Please check the code on: Example: Adding the category to the base URL. When I remove the ‘job’ in the following code, the job listings are working fine, but the rest of my website returns in a 404 error (also after saving the permalinks).

$args['rewrite']['slug'] = 'job/%category%';


$args['rewrite']['slug'] = '%category%';

   // Abort if post is not a job
   if ( $post->post_type !== 'job_listing' )
       return $permalink;

   // Abort early if the placeholder rewrite tag isn't in the generated URL
   if ( false === strpos( $permalink, '%' ) )
       return $permalink;

   // Get the custom taxonomy terms in use by this post
   $terms = wp_get_post_terms( $post->ID, 'job_listing_category', array( 'orderby' => 'parent', 'order' => 'ASC' ) );

   if ( empty( $terms ) ) {
       // If no terms are assigned to this post, use a string instead (can't leave the placeholder there)
       $job_listing_category = _x( 'uncat', 'slug' );
   } else {
       // Replace the placeholder rewrite tag with the first term's slug
       $first_term = array_shift( $terms );
       $job_listing_category = $first_term->slug;

   $find = array(

   $replace = array(

   $replace = array_map( 'sanitize_title', $replace );

   $permalink = str_replace( $find, $replace, $permalink );

   return $permalink;
add_filter( 'post_type_link', 'job_listing_post_type_link', 10, 2 );

function change_job_listing_slug( $args ) {
  $args['rewrite']['slug'] = 'job/%category%';
  return $args;
add_filter( 'register_post_type_job_listing', 'change_job_listing_slug' );
