Abstract This study was undertaken majorly to design and implement an online examination system for staff recruitment. Specific objectives of the study are: To identify the structure/characteristics of an online examination system for staff recruitment, To identify the benefits of an online examination system for the recruitment of staff, To find out the challenges/disadvantages of the adoption of online examination system for the recruitment of staff. Concerning methodology for this study, the data used for the development of the research was gotten from the internet, textbooks, and articles. The contributions of other researchers on the subject were examined so as to gather relevant information. The case study also provided useful information for the development of the system. System analysis has to do with examining a system in order to understand its step by step operations so as to identify its benefits and areas of limitation that require improvements. In the existing system, the staff recruitment was still manually achieved, the average results and grading were manually computed. The problems of the existing system include time-consuming, errors in computation are very common, inefficient, reports of results cannot be easily retrieved. In the proposed system, staff recruitment for the case study will be carried out effectively on the internet in order to save time and also to bring fairly to qualified candidates. This study will bring to light the relevance of adopting online examination system for employee short-listing or e-recruitment system and the need for its adoption by the organization.
