Adding Online Job Applications to Website

I have recently been placed in charge of maintaining our company website which has been pretty easy thus far. Although the company is now asking if we can post online job openings and allow people to apply online. I am using Microsoft FrontPage as my web design software. How do you post an online application so people can fill out an application and have it emailed to someone in our company i.e. human resources email address? I can't even seem to be able to simply place a pdf job application on the site to just allow them to print it off and fax it back which would be a good start but they are really wanting to be able to have them fill out the application online and have it emailed to someone. Help. Can I do this with Microsoft FrontPage and if so How?

You would do it as a Form, but it is going to be a monster form, depending on how much you want them to send. Additionally, if you want them to be able to upload a resume, you are looking at additional issues.

Most sites that do this will write custom code and will have the data written to a file or a database, such as MySQL.

If you just want to set it up where people submit information via a form... that's pretty easy to do. You could use the script by Kalinga Athulathmudali. It's a very easy and nice php form mailer. If you want it all in a database, that's a little more work.
