We're looking for some help

C3 needs some freelance help in two areas. If you are interested, please drop me an email or comment. Be forewarned, I publish all comments that are on topic/not spam. So if you don’t want your phone number or address blasted to the world, don’t put them in the comments.

First, I’m looking for someone to help me with a Microsoft Access database. We need to track our inventory. We have newsletter, pins, bracelets, brochures, etc. in our office and we’re getting a lot of requests for materials for health fairs, doctor’s offices, exhibitions, etc. I need for our Office Administrator to be able to record when something is requested, have it automatically deduct from the inventory count, track what items she has sent out and to where, and handle re-orders. Microsoft has an inventory tracking database here that is very close to what I want. I just need it customized for our use. I don’t know enough about Access to make it worth my time to do it myself, but I know exactly what I want. I just need someone who can make it happen.

Second, as I mentioned before, I’m having trouble time management-wise cranking out our newsletter on my own. We’ve already published two issues, one last Fall, and one this Winter. I need someone who is very comfortable in Adobe InDesign CS2 and can take the previous issues and current copy and give me a Spring newsletter on a tight deadline. Use of Acrobat 7 Pro is a plus for review PDFs. Some revisions I may be able to do, some I’ll have to farm out. I’m looking for someone with production skills first, design second.

  1. Why not go with MySQL and an online (PHP) application to track inventory? It could eventually grow into something people (even those who borrow items) could use, etc.

  2. Hi Judi – what’s your deadline for the spring newsletter? I might be able to help you out as March is a somewhat slow-er month for me.


  3. Thanks, Keri. Someone else beat you to the punch and we’re all set for the Spring issue. But I’ll be in touch if we need something else and thank you again for taking the time to post!
