Youemploy was initially intended to be a volunteer opportunity during my 2nd university year, however my team managed to integrate this site into our coursework for extra credit. After the project was submitted our 4 man team became 2 - myself and Mark Lang. Our time was paid for and we were able to continue development with a few possible launch dates.
The site itself was built from the ground up with our own custom php framework. It is a modular framework complete with dbal, sessions, events, plugins and a templating engine called RML. The style of the site was prototyped by myself using Adobe Photoshop and then manually re-created using CSS/HTML, though this was only a temporary measure while functionality was built. The style would eventually be redesigned using Twitter's Bootstrap framework., with a view to becoming responsive.
youemploy.me was due to launch in June 2012 and was later archived in October 2013.
