Online job matching tools to support HR functionalities in organizations is increasingly becoming popular. Fast and efficient employment solutions for disadvantaged groups are especially important since they are a part of social inclusion. Employment process of disadvantaged groups is different than regular job finding processes because these individuals may not have physiological, cultural, economic, technical and/or political resources to reach the candidate evaluation process. Even if they can reach to this process, they can be discriminated because of the prejudices. This might end up with sub-optimal solutions since the disadvantaged individual may be forced to find employment not relevant to their qualifications while the employers may face skills shortages. Solution to this problem requires new approaches to employment process. The objective of this paper is to make a process modeling of the existing employment systems for the disadvantaged people and suggest possible improvements to these systems.
