I have to develop a site like http://www.monster.com with these standard set of features:

  • Users should be able to register, login, create their profile, upload their resume and photo.

  • Site Admin(s) should be able to post jobs. All the users whose profile matches the posted jobs should be notified of the new job.

I have one year experience in PHP, but haven't used any frameworks (CMS) up till now. I looked at WordPress, Laravel, CakePHP, Drupal, Joomla, etc. but couldn't decide which one to choose.


I think you can use WordPress for these specific features (all you mention are already developed in this CMS or can be easily implemented with a plugin or some basic knowledge of PHP).

  • Thanks for your reply Zistoloen. I'm new to WordPress. I know only how to use it but don't know how to customize it. Can you please suggest me how to get started. – bhargavg Jun 13 '13 at 15:33
  • It's hard to explain you how to customize it. Now, you know you can use WordPress for your website, so get's started. – Zistoloen Jun 13 '13 at 18:29
