Abstract: Online recruitment services have rapidly become one of the most popular types of application on the World-Wide Web. The award-winning JobFinder site ( is good example. It allows users to browse and search a large database of current jobs from a variety of employment sectors. However, like many similar Internet applications JobFinder has a number of shortcomings, due mainly to its reliance on traditional database technology and client-pull information access models, which place the burden of navigation and search on the user. To address these shortcomings the CASPER (Case-based Agency: Skill Profiling & Electronic Recruitment) project seeks to investigate the role of Artificial Intelligence techniques such as Automated Collaborative Filtering (ACF) and Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) as a means of providing a more proactive, personalised and intelligent model of information access.
