For this contest, we are looking for a design for the family practice industry (nurses, doctors, office managers, etc). It's very important, however, that we're able to use the same basic template in order to create the job boards for the other industries we have. Each site will have it's own unique color scheme and header area. The rest should stay consistent between sites.
Homepage elements (listed by priority):
• The homepage needs to appeal to two distinct audiences – job seekers and employers. So the homepage needs to be divided in some way so that each audience type self selects itself by gravitating to an area of the homepage where content is relevant to them. Whereas many job sites focus mostly on the job seeker, our split is more 60/40 in terms of focus on the job seeker versus the employer. We want to appeal to both parties because job seekers create the site traffic and employers are the customers that generate the revenue.
• Top header area that will contain the website url (FamilyDoctorJobs.com) and provide individual flare for the site.
• Main call to action for Job Seekers – Sign up for Job Alerts
• Main call to action for Employers – Post a Job ($249 for 60 days)
• Secondary call to action for Employers – Complete an online profile (FREE!)
• Search area – should have keyword search input box, additional optional filters by US State
• Recently posted jobs – Job title only, for maybe the top 5 recent job postings. Job titles should be clickable links. Should have a clickable call to action in this area to view more jobs.
• Twitter feed – As can be setup through https://dev.twitter.com/docs/embedded-timelines
• Below the fold, and not conflicting with the actual content, Google Adsense image ads (any size Google offers, as free space allows) – http://support.google.com/adsense/b…wer=185665
Sample Content Page – Job Details (listed by priority):
• Job Title
• Job Description (assume 4-5 paragraphs)
• Location (city, state)
• Salary (in US Dollars)
• Date Posted
• Main call to Action – Apply to this job
• Secondary call to action – Suggested Jobs – 3 other jobs similar to this one with Job Title and Location (city, state), where Job Title is clickable
We may not need a top navigation, given the limited number of functions on the site. However, these are the main categories. Leaving it to your discretion as to whether or not a traditional navigation needs to be included.
• Employer Profiles
