Effectiveness of Online Job Recruitment System: Evidence from the University of the East

Mary Grace G. Ventura and Rex P. Bringula

The purpose of the study was to develop an online recruitment software that would facilitate the fast and accurate selection of qualified applicants. The Modified Waterfall Model was utilized in the development of the software. The developed software was then evaluated by six groups of respondents to determine the effectiveness of the system in terms of performance, reliability, security, and cost-effectiveness. Descriptive statistics revealed that the software was effective. Analysis of variance showed that there was no significant difference in the evaluation of the six groups on the effectiveness of the developed online recruitment system. This indicated that the six groups of respondents had the same rating on the effectiveness of the software. It implies that the software would perform its function effectively by selecting qualified applicants within a shorter period of time. Thus, it was recommended that the system be adopted by the University. Recommendations to improve the software were also offered.
