Stake employment and networking

Postby tjallred » Sun Sep 07, 2008 2:45 pm

I have been given the task of figuring out a way to help our Stake employment specialist manage all of the jobs searching info in the stake. He wants to create a database of people looking for a job in our stake along with all the stake members and where they work/what they do. He basically wants to help facilitate getting people together. He's already had members of the stake fill out forms that include the type of work they do and whether or not they would be willing to help with resumes and stuff. I actually think the information is invaluable that he's collecting, but how does he facilitate things without having to just remember everything?

We've considered a "LinkedIn meets Monster" style website, but I'm aware of the rule outlawing locally-sponsored sites.

What other options can I consider? Maybe an Access database? What if I created a website that only he could access?

Are there any plans for the Church to develop anything that will fill this need?

Although not official, there is a project early in the works that we may get the community involved in helping us developed called "Talent Storehouse". I'm not sure what the current status of that project is but I'll see if I can find out.

I may be interested in contributing to something like this if necessary. I'm a java/php developer.

Visit http://tech.lds.org/wiki for information on projects we will be soliciting help with. We just announced HT/VT application and two more projects are soon to be added.
