I have been requested to assist with the setup of a database for a new program at our client called the "Job Training Center".
The function of the program is to collect information from employers as to what job openings they have. They will also collect information from individuals as prospective employees for these job openings. Then they will match up employers with the best fitting prospective employees.
So my question is what database software would be recommended for this purpose? I cannot even think of how to word their needs in a manner conducive to using a search engine. Those results usually just return database programs for managing employees as an employer, which isn't really what they need. I am leaning to Microsoft Access 2010 right now but that is mostly because they already own that software. If there is some software that is better designed for this use then I would like to look it over for a possible recommendation. Their budget severely limits them in the short term but I can always make a long term recommendation and just use Access for now if need be.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
