The customer will be able to create their CV on the website, make payment and be directed to a page when they can download their CV. They will also be given login details so they can view, download and edit their CV.

Once they have filled in their personal details they will be asked to add/edit/remove any of the below and they will be able to organise them how they choose.

1. Please indicate cost and reliable timeframe to completion.
2. Use a MySQL database, php, asp or dotnet coding.

I received the above request at 5.30pm yesterday from a new, potential client. This is the first time I have been contacted by them so they have (most probably) asked other developers for quotation also, so this is a speculative bid.

I do not have the time to code this myself as we are developing a couple of online web application for ourselves, but do not want to loose the chance of adding another client to my portfolio to whom I may be able to make future sales.


I created some sample page to show the client and confirm the interpretation of his specification. It is available here:

The application needs to be built in PHP using a MySQL database. The code must be well commented to allow easier updates in the future.

The client has already taken out an account with Cardsave, which appears quite straightforward to link with
