    Question Copied this post to here Script question

    Post moved to this location 7/3/02

    Hello, this is my first post here and it may seem naive to some of the pros here.

    I operate a small employment website created and maintained in Frontpage that is hosted elsewhere.

    As we grow we keep adding items to the site.

    At this time some of my employer clients want to be able to view resumes posted at the site.

    What I need to do is this.
    1. Have a form where the resume can be posted online by the user.
    2. The means to have the employers view the resumes and search by category and maybe 2 or 3 other key words.

    I don't have a clue about CGI, PERL or ASP. I do use FrontPage forms now for an online application but that information is e-mailed to the client when the user hits submit. I know the resume stuff will have to work different than Frontpage forms.

    As a secondary issue, If someone can help with this or even do it we can't pay but will give you accolades, a banner ad and credit on our site, which incidently is an Internet Top Ten with about 350,000 visitors this year. Or we can pay you when we get rich and famous.

    Anyway, thats a side issue, can anyone give me some ideas on the resume setup.

    Thanks

    7/3/02 I checked with our host today and the current setup on our account is PERL/CGI

    1. Have a form where the resume can be posted online by the user.
    This can be done by writing a script that's very similar to the script used for guestbooks.

    Go to http://www.htmlgoodies.com/primers/perl/perl07.html for a step by step means in which you can accomplish this.

    2. The means to have the employers view the resumes and search by category and maybe 2 or 3 other key words.
    Once you have this basic script, you can expand upon it by creating another script that reads in the keywords and searches through the datafiles that you create with the code.

    Also, forego the code where you automatically display all the information in the datafile (unless you want ALL the resumes to be displayed on the page when an employer searches).
