Website to be developed to promote my business; I’m a corporate recruiter in the tax field. The website shall be directed to potential clients and tax candidates/job seekers.
I will expect the web designer to create an original look and feel of the site, which is user friendly, and demonstrates a professionalism of my business.
The site will include an RSS feed to collect news articles, a sign up page and a place to display my monthly newsletter.
In addition, I will expect the designer to incorporate Search engine optimization features and add reasonable security measures to prevent the website from being hacked into by intruders.
Attached is a sample home page from another recruiter’s website I like. This is only an example of a look I like; it’s not to be copied. The web address is: [url removed, login to view]
The features of this webpage I like are that it is broken up into sections and tells the user quickly what they must do. It is professional and sharp looking on most browsers.
I will expect the web designer to create an original look and feel for the website, which allows visitors to easily understand and navigate through the website.
Within the website there will be pages that only can be accessed, depending on which section is clicked on, through Employer or Job Seeker. The Newsletter and Contact Us pages can be accessed from anywhere on the website.
For Employer section the pages will consist of: About Company, Client Services (which has 3 pages within it, Process, Retention and Guarantee)
For Job Seeker section the pages will consist of: About, which is what I call ‘Why Use Company’, Service (which has 5 pages within it, Our Process, Career Advisement, Resume Critique, confidentiality and then a link to the Newsletter Sign-up).
There’s a newsletter sign up page, once completed the information is automatically emailed to me, preferably in a text format to paste on an excel spreadsheet. Within this page there is a link which will allow the user to see the current Newsletter. The newsletter must be setup so I can easily format it each month within the website. See attachment of sample newsletter page and newsletter.
There is a Tax News section which has the latest articles about tax events. These news articles are to be fed in by an RSS feed or the most efficient means possible. I’m attaching a picture of a rough layout on what I’m looking for. I can supply a list of sites with tax news, but have never used these sites to obtain news events in the past, so I’m a little uncertain about how this feature should work.
Attached is a sample view of the Contact Us page.
There also needs to be an Administrator sections where I can make changes to the website.
In addition, I will expect the designer to incorporate some search engine optimization features and add reasonable security measures to prevent the website from being hacked into by intruders.
Although I have several images that I have found on the internet that I like, I’m also looking for the web designer to supply and advise me on this area as well since he or she will be coming up with a color scheme as well.
All text is already written and will be supplied to the designer to be inserted into the website.
**What I expect from designer/programmer when working with me on this project:**
• A deadline for final completion of project, I’m looking for about 30 to 60 days from start date
• Understand that some aspects of website are subject to my opinion that cannot be expressed until a product has been developed, but I will do my best to minimize your time and effort.
• Any meetings by phone that needs to take place must be requested on any business day with a 24 hours notice.
? Meetings shall take place at an agreed upon morning time, I’m on EST
? Meetings shall last no more than one hour unless agreed to prior
• It is up to the developer to create a report from the meeting within 48 hours on what was discussed, including changes or new items and post report to Rent-A-Coder website so I may sign-off on changes or new items that will go into effect.
• Each item discussed needs to be assigned a code for easy reference and allow for clear communication.
