Suitable use of Alfresco? Job candidate tracking/workflow

  I'm working on a proof of concept demonstration of Alfresco for my employer. So far I'm having a great time with Alfresco but I'm having trouble coming up with a solution to one requirement: employment candidate tracking.

  We need to track a person from the time we receive a resume to the point at which we're done with the candidate, that is, hired or not hired (and the reason, such as "no openings", "not qualified", "rejected offer").  Associated with the person is their resume and any notes written by interviewers, managers, HR, etc.  My boss also wants to be able to see at a glance how many candidates are in the pipeline and where they are in the process ("interview scheduled", "awaiting response to offer", etc.)

  My initial thought was a custom content model and work flow, and perhaps a data grid to show the status at a glance.  Before I tackle this steep learning curve I'd like to get some feedback on if what I want to do is a good use of Alfresco and if so, am I approaching the problem the right way.

  As a side note, my normal job is as a Java web developer and I'm very familiar with Tomcat, Spring, JavaScript (including YUI), though I've no practical experience with rules engines.

  Thanks for any help!
