In the area of Human Resource Management, the trend is towards online exchange <br> of information about human resources. For example, online applications for <br> employment become standard and job offerings are posted in many job portals. <br> However, there are too many job portals to monitor all of them if someone is <br> interested in a new job. <br> We developed a prototype for integrating information of different job portals <br> into one meta-search engine. First, existing job portals were investigated and XML <br> schemes were derived automated from these portals. Second, translation rules for <br> transforming each schema to a central HR-XML-conform schema were <br> determined. The HR-XML-schema is used to build a form for searching jobs. The <br> data supplied by a user in this form is now translated into queries for the different <br> job portals. Each result obtained by a job portal is sent to the meta-search engine <br> that ranks the result of all received job offers according to userĀ“s preferences.
