I am a total newb when it comes to web development. My business partner and I would like to launch an employment website for communities in our area and we are wondering if it will be possible given our limited budget (we are students.) I was wondering if
any developers or free lancers would be kind enough to weigh in on the number of hours and cost that may be involved in adapting the job site starter kit for our purposes:
This list is by no means exhaustive. I am sure there will be many other features/details that will need to be added or modified. I am just hoping someone could give me a ballpark estimate regarding how much this adaptation would cost, and the number of hours
of work it would require. Thank you so much for your time, the help you provide people is truly a wonderful service.

It depends on developer, it could be $1000 and $10 000.
Also have in mind that "Give us a very high google ranking when people search for jobs in our area" is not one task, it requires maintenance.

I agree. I would--on the low end--go about 3 grand for a good core with admin capabilities, sql db, flash, .net development...on up to 6-7 grand. It really depends on how fluid you want the interaction and whatnot. Search engine ranking is based on myriads
of factors and not just submitting a site into Google (and money is not necessarily the major factor, but it is for sponsored links). As stated, search engine optimization begins with the development of the site. Developing a site is easy, but if your site
is not indexable very well (ie Flash-based sites or flash navigation), then you may have some difficulty with SEO.
