Full Project – DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF ONLINE JOB PORTAL
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Technology is constantly changing, Society as we know depends on this fact. That which we take for granted today would have been the stuff of science fiction as little as fifty years ago. In the early years of the twenty first century, it is computers and the Internet that have captured the public imagination, and found their way into not just the working environments, but increasingly into the domestic spaces. In this modern society, if we are not capable to cope up with these changes than we are not going to stand or survive anywhere in this technical world (Odiagba, 2004).
Today there is no place for errors, so as to make a system more effective and efficient we need such technology where error prone chances must be least. In the scenario of this project, we are required to develop a web-based application on Job Portal Management System. In this time of recession where everyone, is either experienced or fresher, is in search for a job. This job portal can prove to be very helpful since it allows users of different profile to upload their CVs, search job on the basis of their qualification.
Every user can access through user id and apply for multiple jobs at a time. Viewing available jobs, or applying for the job at the agency can be done for which jobseekers has to go to the agency and check the available jobs at the agency. Job seekers check the list of jobs available and apply the job. Then the agency will show available jobs for the job seeker for his qualifications and then updates the jobs database. The developed Job Portal management system is web-based which Requires Employee Registration & Profiles, Job Search, Employer Registration & Profiles, and Subscription Option for both Employee and Employer etc. Employer can add Own Profile and post jobs and Job Seeker can Search Jobs based on Geographical Area (Country, State, and City), Qualification, and Company wise or on the Basis of Experience and Expertise wise.
On-line activities have in recent past replaced virtually every form of transactions. This is because of the advent of the internet, which provides a global network connection for all such activities. With this technology, many institutions have their tentacles spread across the glob. In line with this trend, job search activities and job providers need to join the band wagon of the global community in shearing their information across the internet. The Project work is based on this notion.
A web portal, also known as a links page, presents information from diverse sources in a unified way. Apart from the standard search engine feature, web portals offer other services such as e-mail, news, stock prices, information, databases and entertainment. Portals provide a way for enterprises to provide a consistent look and feel with access control and procedures for multiple applications and databases, which otherwise would have been different entities altogether.
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Individual websites need to be created so that clients can access their desired information directly. Applicants were required to search through print and visual media for opportunities, most times this jobs were limited to the applicant’s location. Application were submitted using the conventional methods which weren’t effective and efficient based on loss of document during transits and many more. The old system approach was tedious and requires much effort and resources, most times Employers need to advertise the vacancies and sort all applicants’ details, conduct selections procedures based on qualifications.
The use of metadata and ontologies will enable to model the company organization and to relate these concept to the information.
1.3 OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
The practical objective of this work is to design and implement an online recruitment portal. One of the most important objectives of this project is to contribute to academic research work while the subsidiary objectives include;
- to help employers to post their job offers online and search their database to find people who best suit their vacant job positions.
- providing the possibility for job seekers to build their curriculum vitae (CVs) online, look for new job opportunities in industries and organizations, get e-mail notifications of interesting job vacancies and apply directly through the website.
- to help organizations attract, test, recruit, employ and retain quality staff with minimal amount of administration.
- to reduce or totally remove IM that goes amongst the recruitment agents or personnel managers.
1.4 SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
If this prototype is fully developed will be very useful in many areas such as:
- It will ease the work of the personnel department of any organization.
- It will create more employment opportunities for our youths.
- The government can also review and deploy it to other sectors.
- Private individuals can also find it interesting
1.5 SCOPE OF THE STUDY
This project will go as far as deploying web technologies in the implementation.
Dreamweaver will be use as the major development tool. Database connection using MySQL will extensively be covered in this work.
Studies were carried out in the various institutions that conduct interviews and recruitments. The scheme used is closed tag to the information collected at the point of this research. All forms and database designed followed the pattern of the manual means by the employers of labour.
This project was deployed using a local sever, which runs on a stand alone Pc and not deployable to the internet.
1.6 LIMITATION OF THE STUDY
The study was limited by several factors, of which some posed serious constraints towards the development of the project. One of the major drawbacks was due to financial incapacitation. This is among other frustrations such as program failures during modular construction stages.
In ability to procure personal internet access for uploading made it difficult for the deployment at testing stag.
Again was the distance and availability of research materials. It was absolutely difficult to source most of the important information needed for this work. For instance, collection of information that helped me to develop the forms and database was another serous issue.
1.7 DEFINITION OF TERMS / VARIABLES
JOB/RECRUITMENT: This refers to the process of attracting, screening and selecting qualified people for a job at an organization or firm.
