Online Job Recommender System

Aman Jha, Lalit Purbia, Ranveer Singh Ranawat


Dealing with the enormous amount of recruiting information on the Internet, a job seeker always spends hours to find useful ones. To reduce this laborious work, we design and implement a recommendation system for online jobhunting. In this paper, we contrast user-based and item-based collaborative filtering algorithm to choose a better performed one. We also take background information including students’ resumes and details of recruiting information into consideration, bring weights of co-apply users (the users who had applied the candidate jobs) and weights of student usedliked jobs into their commendation algorithm. At last, the model we proposed is verified through experiments study which is using actual data. The recommended results can achieve higher score of precision and recall, and they are more relevant with users’ preferences before.
