Creation of an Internet-Based, Jobs-Networking Application in West Philadelphia, Using Global Information Systems Software

  1. 1. <ul><li>SmsEP (Short Message Service Employment Networking Program) </li></ul><ul><li>Designed to address spatial mismatch between job-seekers in West Philadelphia and employment opportunities in the metro area. </li></ul><ul><li>Also addresses the lack of essential services such as banking, childcare and grocery stores in the study area. </li></ul><ul><li>Not a solution to the digital divide, but an alternative source of essential information. </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>Web-based resume and employment interface for job-seekers </li></ul><ul><li>Data stored in an online relational MySQL database. </li></ul><ul><li>Job-seekers create and maintain a resume and set of personal preferences. </li></ul><ul><li>Job matches based on information submitted by job-seekers. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Resume edit/entry form </li></ul><ul><li>User-input data is editable by job-seekers at all times. </li></ul><ul><li>Skill categories based on a survey of existing employment databases such as monster.com and careerbuilder.com. </li></ul>
  4. 4. SmsEP Project MySQL Database
  5. 5. <ul><li>Web-based profile and job-listing interface for employers. </li></ul><ul><li>Data stored in an online relational MySQL database. </li></ul><ul><li>Employers create and maintain a profile of their company. </li></ul><ul><li>Job listings are created and edited by employers online. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Employer profile entry/edit form </li></ul><ul><li>Profile data is editable by the employer at all times. </li></ul><ul><li>Profiles are accessible by job-seekers who have been matched with a job offered by the employer. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Job-Listings offered by an employer. </li></ul><ul><li>All listings are stored in the relational database and tagged as either ‘active’ or ‘closed’. </li></ul><ul><li>Listings are matched to job-seekers based on the job category and key-words entered by the employer. </li></ul><ul><li>The location of the jobsite is used to determine transportation routes for the job-seekers who are matched with the job. </li></ul><ul><li>Job listings are editable at any time by employers. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Job-Listing edit/entry form. </li></ul><ul><li>Listings are entered and edited by employers via an online form. </li></ul><ul><li>Job numbers are generated by the database dynamically. </li></ul><ul><li>An archive of old job listings is available to employers if they choose to re-open a listing that has expired or been closed. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Administrative view of job-seekers </li></ul><ul><li>Program administrators can view all participating job-seekers. </li></ul><ul><li>Administrators have the ability to ‘block’ users from the service who have either found employment or violated a program policy. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Administrative view of employers </li></ul><ul><li>Program administrators can view all participating employers. </li></ul><ul><li>Administrators have the ability to ‘block’ users from the service who have violated a program policy. </li></ul>

  13. 13. Philadelphia Metropolitan Area Public Transportation Network
  14. 14. Service and Asset Locations in Philadelphia County
  15. 15. <ul><li>GIS Routing Model </li></ul><ul><li>Model calculates route between job-seeker and job-site based on the Philadelphia street network or public transportation network. </li></ul><ul><li>Directions are output by the model as .txt or .xml files. </li></ul><ul><li>Locations of services (e.g. banks, grocery stores, childcare centers) along the routes are also collected by the GIS model. </li></ul>
