    Question Careers and Work Experience

    Hi All,

    We've been asked about a database to look after work experience placements, careers consultation meetings etc...

    Does anyone have any recommendations please?

    Thanks

    what do you mean you have been asked about a database. What is the criteria to be applied?

    The careers & work experience co-ordinator needs a database where she can log:

    - All placements offered
    - All employers offering placements
    - All students in the school (SIMS link a bonus here)
    - Link students to placements
    - Generate mail-merged letters/forms

    She has an old clunky solution written for WinXP but it's not great... Does anyone have any other suggestions, or know of 3rd Party solutions?

    could always take what she has, convert to MySQL and knock up a PHP page for her.

    I would do it but for the following.

    A) - Time is lacking
    B) - I would charge for such a thing at a rate of 45 per hour spent on it
    C) - It would need hosting and testing for you to approve which would be tacked on in costs
