Design And Implement An Online Recruitment Portal


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


1.1 Background of the Study

On-line activities have a recent past replaced virtually every form of transactions. This is because of the advent of the internet’s which provide a globle network connection for all such activities. With this technology, many institution have their ten lades spread across the globle. In line with this trend, job search activities and job providers need to join the band wagon of the globle community in shearing their their information across internet. The project work is base on the nation .

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 price, information, databases, and entertainment. Portals provid a way for enterprises to provide a consistent look 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 website need to be created so that client can access their desired information directly.

The sudden increase in the number of recruitments enroll in each school has transcended the manipulation of the existing system used by the school administrators and this prompted a lot of problems which encompass the inaccurate computation of students result by the staffs on the account of non-availability of adequate number of computer systems for the computation. This is a very ugly development.

Also, it was very complicated to observe when the enrolment of students should cease since there was no efficient system for the estimation of enrolment ratio to give a signal when the enrolment tends to move beyond the projection. All these and more are encountered due to the debilitation of the prevailing system used. It was very difficult to point out students who cheat in the course of examination as attributed to the non-standard measure used in the supervision of the examination.

The school complained seriously on the unnecessary stress encountered while making the recruitment enrollment manually.

1.3 Objective of the Study

The practical objective of this work is to design and implement an on-line recruitment portal, one of the most important objective of this project is to contribute to academic research work while the subsidiary objective include;

  1. To help employers to post their job offer on-line and their vacant job positions
  2. Providing the possibility for job seekers to build their curriculum vitae (CVs) on-line, look for new job opportunities in industries and organizations, get E-mail notification of interesting job vacancies and apply directly through the website.
  3. To help organizations attract, test, recruit, employ and retain qualify staff with minimal amount of administration.
  4. To reduce or totally remove the malpractice that goes among the recruitment agents or personnel managers.

1.4 Significance of the Study

  1. If this prototype is fully developed it will be very useful in many areas such as;
  2. It will ease the work of the personnel department of the any organization.
  3. It will create more employment opportunities for our youth
  4. The government can also review and deploy it to other sectors
  5. 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 used as the major development tools. 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 research all forms and database designed followed the pattern of the manual means by the employer of labour.

This project was deployed using a local server 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


This refer to the process of attracting screening qualified people for a job at an organization or firm


A web refers to a vehicle for accessing and sharing of information


Is a computer or program managing access to a resource or service in a network.


A web application that is designed to represent a ton of information in a concise and centered way there by making the internet easier to use e.g., etc


Ontology in computer science and information technology is a formal representation of the knowledge by the set of concept within a domain and the relationship between those concepts.


This is loosely defined as data about data. It is concept that applies mainly to electronically archived data and is used to describe the definition structure and administration of data file with all contents in context to ease the use of the captured and archived data for further use.


(Structured Query Language) is a database computer language designed for managing data in relational database management system (RDBMS) and originally base upon relational algebra. It scope include data query and update, schema creation and modification, and date access control.


This is designed to offer an organized Mechanism for storing managing and retrieving information.

Chapter Five

Summary and Conclusion

5.1 Summary

At the end of this research work, several lessons were leant. These include among others, how web pages can be hosted on the internet.

Again the primary aim of this work was achieved, which is the design of a recruitment web portal.

5.2 Problems Encountered and Solutions

There were several problems encountered in the process of this design. The most important aspect of the problem was the aspect of information gathering. It was very difficult to for me source information for the relevant thing that I needed to do.

Finance was another important aspect of the work that rendered everything almost impossible.

5.3 Suggestions for Further Improvements

I would rather here suggest that anybody wishing to repeat this work should dwell more on incorporating sound into the system. Higher programming languages such as java, .Net, etc may be used for future development.

5.4 Recommendations

I will strongly suggest that more time should be allocated to school project. This will go a long way to helping the student involved to truly participate actively in developing his work.

Another important suggestion is financial support. Government and agencies should come to the aid of the student carrying out such project work as this financially. This can only be possible if the school will link the student to such agencies and governmental institutions.

5.5 Conclusions

Web portals are essential aspects of the internet that provide temporal link to vital information resources. This project work has been able to implement one for job recruitment exercises.
