DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF AN ONLINE JOB PORTAL
CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION
Technology is constantly changing, Society, as we know, depends on this fact. That which we take for granted today would have been the stuff of science fiction as little as fifty years ago. In the early years of the twenty-first century, it is computers and the Internet that have captured the public imagination and found their way into not just the working environments but increasingly into the domestic spaces. In this modern society, if we are not capable to cope up with these changes then we are not going to stand or survive anywhere in this technical world.
Today there is no place for errors, so as to make a system more effective and efficient we need such technology where error-prone chances must be least. In the scenario of this project, we are required to develop a web-based application on the Job Portal Management System. In this time of recession where everyone, is either experienced or fresher, is in search of a job. This job portal can prove to be very helpful since it allows users of different profiles to upload their CVs, search for jobs on the basis of their qualifications.
Every user can access through user-id and apply for multiple jobs at a time. Viewing available jobs, or applying for the job at the agency can be done for which job seekers have to go to the agency and check the available jobs at the agency. Job seekers check the list of jobs available and apply for the job. Then the agency will show available jobs for the job seeker for his qualifications and then updates the jobs database. The developed Job Portal management system is web-based which Requires Employee Registration & Profiles, Job Search, Employer Registration & Profiles, and Subscription Option for both Employee and Employer, etc. An employer can add their Own Profile and post jobs and a Job Seeker can Search for Jobs based on Geographical Area (Country, State, and City), Qualification, and Company wise or on the Basis of Experience and Expertise wise.
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
The aims and objectives of the application are to develop a system in which job applicants and recruiters can communicate with each other. An Online Job Portal is an application where the job seekers can register themselves at the website and search for jobs that are suitable for them whereas the employers register with the website and put up jobs that are vacant at their company. The Online Job Portal System is a package to be used by agencies to improve the efficiency of the business. The system provides job catalogs and information to members and helps them decide on the jobs to apply for. The Admin and employers can keep the jobs catalog updated all the time so that the job seekers get the updated information all the time.
SCREENSHOTS OF THE APPLICATION
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
Applicants were required to search through print and visual media for opportunities, most times these jobs were limited to the applicant’s location, Application were submitted using the conventional methods which weren’t effective and efficient based on loss of document during transits, and many more. The old system approach was tedious and requires much effort and resources, most times Employers need to advertise the vacancies and sort all applicants’ details, conduct selection procedures based on qualifications.
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
The purpose of the study is to solve and develop an online Job Portal where applicants easily find jobs and employers can find suitable candidates for the jobs.
SCOPE OF THE STUDY

Chapter Two reviews the related literature under the following sub-headings: Online Job System, the review of the site, Implementation of the new mode of searching and applying for jobs, etc. Chapter Three handles the System Methodology Analysis and Design as follows: Introduction, the User Interface, Hardware and Software requirements, user documentation, system backup, system maintenance, etc. Chapter four is concerned with the system implementation and programming. Chapter Five comprises of summary, conclusion, and recommendation.
LIMITATION OF THE STUDY
During the cause of the research work, I encountered different challenges –
Unavailability of Study Materials- had slight problems with finding materials to use and carry out this project, had to source outside the school library. Time- combining my academics with this research work was a major limitation since the semester has many- school activities.
