Career development is the lifelong process of managing, learning, work, leisure and transition in order to move towards a personally determined and evolving preferred future for the youth. The increasing level of unemployment in developing countries is becoming a source of worry for government and societies at large. The inability of most graduates to secure a suitable job in their area study is a problem many have faced in recent time. In this project, we proposed an enhanced web based model for youth empowerment and career development which is an automated model that will automatically select qualified and certified candidates into the appropriate field of study. The Object Oriented and Design Methodology was used to analyse our findings because of its usability nature and to organize the interaction of the objects within the new system. The MinHash recommendation algorithm was applied to classify candidates using content based filtering approach with candidate's work experience, the behaviour-based approach was used to test candidates profile details to determine suitability to job allocation of a suitable position in candidate career prospect. Our results showed efficiency in Time Complexity especially in areas that involve speed in access validation of unemployed youths and speed in processing application of an unemployed youth, with values for the evaluated parameters to be 10 and 5 seconds respectively as compared to the Existing System values of 22 and 25 seconds respectively, which further implies that our proposed system outperforms the existing system. In addition, the new system automatically matches and provide screening model to job applications from qualified candidates and the results show that the rate of successful job testing and assignment can be significantly be improved with the most qualified and suitable candidate being assigned the appropriate job which matches his/her course of study, thus streamlining the random selection and producing higher quality output thereby reducing unemployment in the labour market. This work will be beneficial to young graduates, to Government, and any other organization that deals with youth empowerment.
