Abstract: 

In recent years, more and more job seekers have altered their job hunts from the traditional newspaper and hardcopy sources to the ever growing Internet. The online job searching websites provides job seekers with a “one stop shop” where they can easily search for specific job criterion, avoiding irrelevant materials, as well as employer information, and other career-related resources. In other words, job searching websites are a cheap, fast, and widely influential way for both job seekers and employers to connect with each other. This project was intended to develop a high-quality online job search application which would offer a common place for both job seekers and employers to exchange information easily and efficiently. What sets this web application a apart from most others is that it integrates many advanced features that are currently used by the most popular job search websites around, such as search or browse, post job openings, store and manage users’ resumes, apply jobs, save jobs, view jobs’ workplaces on Google Maps, and manage jobs on calendar, and RSS subscribe. Several unique features accommodating the job seekers with handy, intuitive and effortless ways to utilize the site such as fast search, advanced search, keyword tagging, job post rating, and recommend jobs. This site provides its users with the best features to effectively fulfill job placements.
