THANNHAUSER modified: Create a 'member profile to job match' web app
UPDATE: We have selected Joomla 3.1.1 as the CMS for this web development and are considering JomSocial 3 as the 'matching service' social networking application. Skills are therefore refined to JomSocial configuration and development.
DESCRIPTION: This Web App will allow retired professionals to create a brief member profile (or autofill from Linked In or a similar service) which later can be expanded with more details such as a youtube video clip introducing themselves and showing their work. They will identify their skillset (predictive dropdown?), their availability (calendar), their location (gmaps enabled) and their rate (hourly, daily or fixed project price). Our clients will be companies of various sizes who need to easily fill gaps in their workforce for various durations (similar to oDesk?). They will select a set of skills, location, approximate duration and rate limit. The returned search will list in order of ascending or descending rate and/or by positive recommendations (e.g. five star system based upon # of likes). They can then contact the selected member to go through any further processing (outside of the system). The web app must be optimised for tablets and smartphones and be able to protect the data in various ways.
