III. PREVIOUS WORK:
3.1 Desktop Based Recommendation System for Campus Recruitment Using Mahout 
In this paper author R. V Patil, S. R Gadekar, P. P Chavan,V. G Aher proposed a Placement system using Mahout which helps in making the task of Training and Placement officer easy. It eliminates all the human intervention. To access this system all you need to have is an authorized login id and internet. You can access this system anywhere from your campus or outside campus with internet connection. There are two main authorized users of this system. One is student login and other is Administrator login. Students can access the system by authorized student login and TPO and TnP staff can access the system by Admin login. Students can upload their resumes, can check upcoming placement drives and can also get study material from here. The other access to the system is for Administrator. TPO and TnP staffs are two main users of this system. They can access and make updates to the data in the system. TPO can view the system. He can view all students resume. He can upload information regarding upcoming drives. He can also upload information regarding the companies which will be coming. This information can be helpful for the students. TPO gets the highest priority among both the users. He can access as well as update the data. TnP staff can recheck all the information filled by the students. They approve the correctness of the data. Our key element is Mahout’s Naďve Bayes Classification algorithm.
3.2 An Interactive Online Training and Placement System :
In this paper author Mr. Nilesh Rathod, Dr. Seema Shah, Prof. Kavita Shirsat proposed that OTaP system is an online application that can be accessed throughout the organization and outside as well with proper login provided. This system can be used as an application for the Training and Placement Officer (TPO) of the college to manage the student information with regards to placement. Students logging should be able to upload their information in the form of a CV. Visitors/Company representatives logging in may also access/search any information put up by Students. Computer based information system are designed to improve existing system. Whatever the information, TPO has to pass to the student and he or she can inform online. Improve accuracy in result. It has user-friendly interface having quick authenticated access to documents. It provides the facility of maintaining the details of the students. It will reduce the paper work and utilize the maximum capabilities of the setup and organization as well as it will save time and money, which are spending in making reports and collecting data. It can be access throughout the organization and outside as well with proper login provided. This system can be used as an application for college to manage the student information concerning placement. Also helps company coming for campus recruitment to see student details. Before coming for campus, company can get information about eligible students along with interested students.
IV. PROPOSED METHODOLOGY:
Once the student registers, other details such as academics, personal info, and other key information like technical skill can be updated. This updated information is then made in use by the system to generate a resume in Microsoft word’s “doc” format to enable editing it to extend more fields as per the student’s desire.
The administrator user, i.e. the TPO or the staff from training and placement department, can log in to the system with the same interface to the administrative panel to control and manage the data. The main screen consists of list of all the students in the database along with their academic details in the same table. With this table the user can filter out the list of the students meeting the required criteria by inserting the desired percentage. The search is powerful enough to filter out the student list with SSC, HSC and aggregate percentage with each field with different values.
The admin account can insert new question in test or add new test to the test set, like wise deletion of questions and test is also possible and recommended for time to time update to meet the changing requirement of the modern world. The question set is in MCQ or multiple choice formats, in which the student user has to choose an answer from the given options. Once the user clicks any answer, the answer is locked and the correct answer is highlighted instantly. The student will also be provided with an overview result of their answers at the end to study their weaknesses.
The training and placement portal provides a platform to share the technical notes from the teaching faculty and the training and placement department also. The admin account can add the technical notes like research papers, subject notes, question sets; the authorized student users based on their branch and semester can then access this notes.
Another feature of the web portal is the alumni records. A student becoming an alumni can update their information regarding their placement and package from time to time if required. This facilitates the training and placement department to establish a new communication link with the organization in which the alumni currently working. These alumni details can be update by the user themselves.
The report generation is a simple app developed with a simple PHP script with inclusion of Google chart API. The inclusion of Google script allows to easily build donut chart inserting the PHP variable in between for the values to calculate the graphical representation of the chart..
In the existing system, maximum work goes manually and it is error prone system, takes time for any changes in the system. The big problem lies in searching; sorting and updating of the student data and absence of notification method for giving information to student expect the notice board. The Training and Placement Web Portal System provides automation in all the processes. The system gets automated in the online registration all the user, activation and deactivation of the user, personalization to the user, resources to be provided online, communication between the users, online feedback, other setting option. The faculty can see the student information and will validate it, generate the student list based on the company criteria, company details can be provided to the user, searching and sorting can be done, and reports can be generated. Alumni data can be maintained. Overall, all the process of the training and placement department is automated. Quality assurance in teaching learning environment is a tedious process. No customized application is available for maintaining quality procedures in teaching environment. The proposed system will help college placement office to match the companies and students with higher precision and lower cost.
VI. FUTURE SCOPES:
The system has been designed at the maximum possible excellence. Still we accept drawbacks, as it is a human effort. The system cannot provide the SMS and email integration. It can be modified by simple plugin of SMS integration provided by the SMS gateway provider. The system can be made more users friendly. The program is coded in more structured manner so we can include future enhancement. There is scope for improvement of the system. Apart from these there is scope for generating many more features. This software can be extended easily without affecting the functionality. In the future, we can place the system on the cloud so the maintenance of the data can be reduced and provide more agility to the system. The traditional exam system will integrated with the Training and Placement Web Portal system so the student can take real time test and obtain result directly. There can be many more future enhancement and improvement in the Training and Placement Web Portal system.
