Many job applications on the Web provide only simple Boolean comparison using only basic information requirements (i.e., degree, age) for searching and matching jobs to candidates. The net effect is too many 'hits'. We showed that personality is an important factor for the hiring process and satisfaction of employers and employees. In designing better filters for searching and matching a job application on the Web, we considered this factor with general job requirements and then combined it with our matching process. We have tested our model using data obtained from applicants who applied for jobs with a company in Thailand. The results show that we are able to give a better match than that achieved using basic qualifications only.
