ABSTRACT

Web based recruitment portal is a web based application that monitors the recruitment process of any organization online. It has the features that allow the user to apply for job online. When application is sent through the web portal, based on the requirement of the said job description, the portal screens the candidate and determines whether or not the applicant is qualified. If the applicant is not qualified, the portal rejects the application and returns a feedback to the user, else the applicant’s information will be sent to the portal’s database, where the administrator can access notify the applicant of a date of an interview. The web based recruitment portal is or should be recommended for every organization in their personnel department because it will ease the stress of the personnel managers and as well help them to select the suitable people to suit the position. This web portal will be developed using dream weaver platform and the scripting writing with PHP server technology. The database will be administered using mySQL.

KEY WORDS; Web, Recruitment, Portal, Application, Dream weaver, Database, mySQL, Server.

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

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.

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.

1.2.1 Solution

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:

a. It will ease the work of the personnel department of the any organization.

b. It will create more employment opportunities for our youths.

c. The government can also review and deploy it to other sectors.

d. Private individuals can also find it interesting
