    No more, I am waiting for your kind response.

    Thank you.


    So, are you essentially asking us to do your job application?

    So, please give me advice that how I could convince the client and get the job and complete successfully.

    Use your own experience and expertise. That’s really the only advice I can give. I’m not gonna sit here a write up a bunch of code on how to incorporate the features the client/employer is asking for.

    I just don’t understand what you’re asking for here TBH. I feel like you’ve just asked the community to do your homework. The only way you can convince the employer is by coding the work yourself based on your knowledge, if you can’t commit to what they’re asking for, this job isn’t for you.

    That may sound negative and in someway harsh, but it’s true.

    I’d like to understand your question a bit more in detail as to what you’re actually asking for. COde this up for you? Give you sources to relevant subjects and areas the employer has asked for?




    Hi JMD,

    Thank you for your massage.

    I just want to know that how I start the job if I get this. Which elements need to start the job? May I ask client to provide PSD file or images or anything else for this job?

    In fact, I just want to get a start up guideline as well. Thank you.


    ^ this. It’s pretty well explained what the client wants. You need to learn how to incorporate each block in to building a final product. For starters, by the sounds of what this “person” is asking for, will require the obvious HTML & CSS, but the use of Javascript and PHP too.

    They’re practically asking you to build an entire live site from scratch.

    I don’t mean to be patronizing or horrible in anyway, but the sample site they have provided you with is a pretty poor example to give you. I don’t even think it’s been updated in almost three years. (Judging by the footer — 2005-2010).

    First off, the entire content of the site is made with HTML tables and the majority of the CSS is written inline. (the stylesheet has a whole 30 lines…) I don’t even…

    Who is hiring you exactly lol?!
