This research work focused on the development of Automated system for employee recruitment screening, a case study of civil service commission, Uyo. This study was necessary because the existing system of screening qualified applicants for employment is time consuming and there is difficulty in retrieving information of applicants that have passed or failed the employment screening process. To overcome these problems, an automated system for employee recruitment and screening is developed. The system screens employees based on the defined requirements for obtaining the employment such as the academic qualification and years of experience. Also, needed reports about applicants that are qualified for recruitment can be presented when needed by querying the database. The software design methodology used is object oriented analysis and design and the programming language used is Visual BASIC 6.0.

An employee recruitment screening system is a system that processes the application of applicants so as to determine eligible candidates for employment. Screening and recruitment of employees forms a core part of the central activities underlying human resource management. It forms an important part of the work of human resource managers – or designated specialists within work organizations. It has an important role to play in ensuring worker performance and positive organizational outcomes. It is often claimed that selection of workers occurs not just to replace departing employees or add to a workforce but rather to put in place workers who can perform at a high level and demonstrate commitment.

Every organization seeks to employ the most suitable staff in order to move the organization to the next level or to beat-up the ever increasing competition in the business world. The problem is how to get the appropriate person for a particular post or job considering the large number of people that will apply for a particular job offer. Screening makes it possible for the personnel management unit to select the best applicants from a large pool of applications.

  3. Manual system of screening employees is very costly and also time consuming, due to the time wastage on sorting applicants’ resumes.

These problems are always present and need solutions in the process of recruiting and selecting personnel. It is in view of this that this study is conducted to develop an automated system for employee recruitment screening.

1.3 Aim and Objectives of the Study

The aim of the study is to develop automated system for employee recruitment screening. The following are the objectives of the study.

  1. To design a computerized employee recruitment screening system.
  2. To design a system that can be used to screen out qualified candidates for recruitment based on academic qualification and position applied for.
  3. To design a system that will maintain a database of recruitment records for easy short-listing of employees that meet screening requirement.

1.4 Significance of the Study

The significance of the study is that it will provide an automated system for the civil service commission to utilize in screening of employees. It will help organizations solve the present challenges they are facing in handling recruitment. It will also save them time and cost of recruiting. In addition, other scholars seeking for valuable information on the subject will find this research material relevant.

1.5 Scope of the Study

Summary, Conclusion and Recommendation

5.0 Introduction

This chapter presents the summary, conclusion, constraints of the study and offers useful recommendations.

5.1 Constraints of the Study

In carrying out the research work, some challenges were faced that limited the study such as:


The time given for the completion of the research work was too short hence the researcher had speed up the research work to meet up and this has an impact on the study.

Limited Materials:

Few materials were found pertaining to the research area and this limited the bulk of the literature review.


The high cost of textbooks, internet browsing and transportation to different libraries to gather materials stood as a constraint to the research work.

5.2 Summary

The purpose of employee recruitment and screening is to decide who will be employed. It is impossible for the selection panel to do its task without a well-prepared job description and person specification. The essential criteria in the person specification should form the basis of the selection. The criteria should not under any circumstances be changed at the interview stage.

It has been revealed that the computerized method for recruitment and screening is more accurate and time saving than the manual method. It is therefore imperative that organizations should automate their recruitment screening process to be more effective

5.4 Recommendations

The following recommendations are offered based on the findings of the study;

  1. The civil service commission should replace the manual system of employee screening with an automated system.
  2. Civil service should employ the services of computer programmers to develop customized applications to handle the recruitment screening process.
