1.6 SCOPE OF THE STUDY
1.6.1 Existing System with Limitations:
The current system is a manual process. Here Job Provider has to give advertisement in Newspapers or take the help of consultancies etc. It will take a lot of time to screening the resumes and conducting the test.

1.7 LIMITATION OF THE STUDY
The study was limited by several factors, of which some posed serious constraints towards the development of the project. One of the major drawbacks was due to financial incapacitation. This is among other frustrations such as program failures during modular construction stages.
In ability to procure personal internet access for uploading made it difficult for the deployment at testing stag. Again was the distance and availability of research materials. It was absolutely difficult to source most of the important information needed for this work. For instance, collection of information that helped me to develop the forms and database was another serous issue.
