Retrieval in existing e-recruitment system is on exact match between applicants' stored profiles and inquirer's request. These profiles are captured through online forms whose fields are tailored by recruiters and hence, applicants sometimes do not have privilege to present details of their worth that are not captured by the tailored fields thereby, leading to their disqualification. This paper presents a 3-tier system that models serialized documents of the applicants' worth and they are analyzed using document retrieval and natural language processing techniques for a human-like assessment. Its presentation tier was developed using java server pages and middle tier functionalities using web service technology. The data tier models résumés that have been tokenized and tagged using Brill Algorithm with my sequel. Within the middle tier, indexing was achieved using an inverted index whose terms are noun phrases extracted from résumés that have been tokenized and tagged using Brill Algorithm.
