I'm currently building an online recruitment platform for temp roles and looking to see if I can build it myself without a technical co-founder for the present time. A user portal for job seekers to access available work and resources and a business portal for employers. I've tried membership plugins like Member Press but they don't have the capacity to build user dashboards. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
I recommend going custom for this stuff. When you start adding plugins for relatively small customized features you end up with a huge mess that will be hard to maintain and could cause bugs in unrelated areas of the site. Creating something like this will be relatively easy with some basic WordPress PHP.
