Hi, I am thinking about making a job board based web site for photographers where employers can post their jobs and job seekers can email their resumes and details to the employer.
I am gooing to use joomla. Employers will have to register and pay a small advertising fee to post their jobs ad and seekers will have to register to email employers.

A few questions to help me plan the site.

*What steps would you take plan the site?
*How difficult do you think this project will be?
*What problems might I come across when site goes live.

any other advice would be great.

has anyone here tried this.

Yes, I've done this with a health related job board. My site is more than just a job board though. The job board has been the hardest part of it all. Employers don't want to pay for ads when they know there are no visitors/traffic. Job seekers don't find much value in your job board if there are few or no jobs on it. You need both, jobs and job seekers. That's why I have made my job board free for now. I'm building traffic based on the other content I offer to my visitors for the given field. When my traffic gets high enough, I will charge for job postings. For now I make a little from AdSense and affiliate marketing. Hope that helps. Good luck.
