Job Board Application


Client: Simpson Strong-Tie Company, Inc.

Project completion date: February 2003

Approximate time to complete: 2 days

This project involved...

  • Dreamweaver MX
  • Hand-Coding HTML
  • ASP/VBScript
  • Database connectivity

The most often updated feature on this client's websites is the list of jobs available at Simpson. The previous design of this feature involved a static detail page for each job opening, which had been cut and pasted from the Word document sent out internally as a "job announcement." A summary listing page was also maintained that listed all the jobs available with hyperlinks to each of the detail pages.

In order to reduce the amount of effort required to accomplish the maintenance of this job board, I developed a database connected ASP application.

The new design consists of a Microsoft Access database and two ASP pages. The data for each job opening is stored in the database, which provides a simple interface for editing. The first ASP page is a summary page which displays the job title and geographic location of each of the openings. Each job in the list is hyperlinked to a second ASP page which generates a detailed description of that job, its data being drawn from the database.

Note: This application has since been removed by my successor and replaced by static HTML pages.
