Due to overwhelming data on social networking sites about jobs and candidates, it becomes a time-consuming task to generate a match between candidates and employers. Moreover, recruitment of a candidate, who has no work experience called as fresher, poses a two-way problem. Firstly, the candidate due to a lack of experience is not able to decide upon a job among various opportunities which could utilize his/her maximum potential, whereas the employer does not get any past referrals for the candidate to help in the process of recruitment. The proposed study addresses this problem by assisting both; a fresher with a recommended list of job openings which could interest him/her and the employer with a recommendation list of freshers which can be relied upon for the job. The study is assessed and validated with a series of experiments using real data from a social networking site, LinkedIn.
