    A tip:
    Since there are so many job search engines already, the best thing would probably be to have a search engine that performs meta-searches by querying some of the existing ones.

    How to make a metasearch engine:
    To make a metasearch engine for jobs, find several existing job bank or job search websites and select a few you want to use. Look on the site or email the web authors for information about connecting with their database and permission to use their search engine with yours. If they give permission to use the search results but don't have a convenient interface, you can use a technique called "web scraping" to grab search results.

    Suggestions on design:
    I'd keep some information on how to connect with each website's database whether it be through web scraping or a more direct means. Also, there might be some gains in caching search results on your end.



    If you have problems making a user interface(ie. a JSP implementation), try making one and try to be more specific with your questions.

    Thank you very much for that suggestion. I think it's totally different from what you thought. I am doing a course project and it requires that I do everything from sratch which means I will be using MS SQL Server for my database and Microsoft Visual Studio to create my web application using either ASP.NET or JSP. So, everything's on my local machine and no referral at all. Can you suggest me techniques or documents or step-by-step instruction to do that? I really need this as deadline is approaching very, very soon. I would really appreciate it if you could help me out with this. By the way, do you have a good E-R Diagram for a job search system? Thank Q!
