DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF WEB BASED RECRUITMENT PORTAL

Postgraduate

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.

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.

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.
