With an increase in recent years by employers to employ people on contracts rather than permanent employees the student has looked to develop a website that will provide both jobseekers and employers with an easy to navigate and user-friendly website which will provide them with the functionality that would be expected from a website of this type. With an online presence being such an important factor for both companies and individuals nowadays, it is also important to provide companies and individuals with websites and web applications related to their careers and staff employment along with the many other services provided online nowadays. The website designed by the student will look to provide an online service that will add benefit to both employers and jobseekers when it comes to contract work market by looking to provide necessary features such as below:
-Register an account
-Create Profiles and update them
-Search and apply for contracts
-Search and contact potential candidates.
The report presents the contractwork.ie website, which consists of a Graphical User Interface that the user can use to interact with the website. Data and information is stored on a MySQL database which is interacted with using PHP and SQL to store and retrieve data. This allows users to store necessary information and for it to be retrieved and searched where applicable. The report outlines background and aims of the project, requirements set out for the project, high level description of the design and architecture of the website, and outline of main functions implemented. Any testing, customer testing, and result from any evaluations are also highlighted. Finally the student has given their conclusions in relation to the project and any further developments or research that could potentially be undertaken in relation to the project.
