    Hello,

    I am creating a company that provides both website design and development. I am now in the proccess of interviewing designers for the design department of the company. The way I have decided to do this is by holding a contest. The object of the contest is to create the best design for the needs of the domain the company will use (www.phperfection.com). The winner will be offered a design job at PHPerfection.com. For every design you create PHPerfection will take 10% of what the design cost and give the designer 90% of the design job cost. Here are the rules:

    1) Your design will not be used unless you are choosen as the winner of the contest.

    • Any previous work references

    4) If choosen, you agree to slice images as either JPEG or PNG format and code w3c verifiable XHTML Strict and CSS up to four sub-pages and up to two client-side pages for no less then $50USD and no more then $100USD.

    isn't it illegal to ask the age of an applicant?

    No. If the job requires you to be age XX+, how would the employee know if you're that age? The minimum age for Burger King is 15. How would they know if you're at least 15 if they didn't ask you?

    FYI - That information is based on New Jersey, USA.

    FYI2 - I will consider all applicants regardless of age provided they have a design that is appealing and meet all the requirements.

    Thank you.

    they ask "are you legal age to work in new jersey"
    not "how old are you?"
