Design And Implementation Of Recruitment Portal (A Case Study Of Nigeria Civil Service Commission Enugu)


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 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.

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;

  1. To help employers to post their job offers online and search their database to find people who best suit their vacant job positions.
  2. 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.
  3. To help organizations attract, test, recruit, employ and retain quality staff with minimal amount of administration.
  4. To reduce or totally remove IM that goes amongst the recruitment agents or personnel managers.

1.4 Significance of the Study

  1. If this prototype is fully developed 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 youths.
  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 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


This refers to the process of attracting, screening and selecting qualified people for a job at an organization or firm.


This refers to a vehicle for accessing and sharing of information.


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 thereby making the internet easier to use eg.,, etc.


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


This is loosely defined as data about data. It is a 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 based upon relational algebra. It scope include data query and update, schema creation and modification, and data access control.


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

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.
