FoDRA — A new content-based job recommendation algorithm for job seeking and recruiting

Abstract

In this paper, we propose a content-based recommendation Algorithm which extends and updates the Minkowski distance in order to address the challenge of matching people and jobs. The proposed algorithm FoDRA (Four Dimensions Recommendation Algorithm) quantifies the suitability of a job seeker for a job position in a more flexible way, using a structured form of the job and the candidate's profile, produced from a content analysis of the unstructured form of the job description and the candidate's CV. We conduct an experimental evaluation in order to check the quality and the effectiveness of FoDRA. Our primary study shows that FoDRA produces promising results and creates new prospects in the area of Job Recommender Systems (JRSs).
