Unemployment in the present day Nigeria resulted from different misgivings and lack of direct approach to by those concerned to tackle this problem. There are very few jobs compared to the large number of citizens up to the age of being in the labor force. In recent years, subsequent governments and corporate bodies have one way or the other tried to device a means of reducing the instances of unemployment, some being successful to some extent, and other cases having efforts and huge finances being wasted due to lack of proper management, supervision and low productive system of operation.This research project is dedicated to providing a new system that would solve the problem of linking a large number of unemployed individuals to firms, companies, institutions or government agencies that are in need of employing people for one reason or the other. This project has an its case study. The National Directorate of Employment (Owerri Secretariat). It is an agency formed by the Federal Government with the sole purpose of employing as many unemployed individuals into the labor force.This research work, right from its inception is dedicated to greatly solving the problem of errors prone to the manual method of collecting, managing and storing of data as well as distributing processed information. It introduces an electronic means known as Automation, a process that entails the use of the computer and its accessories to manage data and information at a more efficient and effective rate. This would be achieved by introducing an Automated Employment Directory for Labor Assignment System, hence the project topic: “An Automated Employment Directory and Labor Assignment System”.

SUMMARY, CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATION
Employment directory is a database of individuals which provides a list, usually in alphabetical order, of people’s names, contact address, telephone member and other personal information pertaining to a particular group of individuals known as applicants. This directory in its entirety also contains the curriculum vitae (C.V) of individuals grouped under different sections such as job seekers, short listed candidates for an interview or qualified persons designated an employment status, as the case may be.
The directory on its own enables an individual to conduct his/her search with little or no difficulty since the data he/she needs has already been formatted in such way the individual can access it with little or no skill at all. They usually stored under headings and are stored alphabetically. Technology has evolved in recent times to a level where competition between existing systems and a new design are accessed and compared on the basis of reliability, compatibility, output design, speed and efficiency, not to mention sophistication. Globally, people are mostly interested in systems that can match any standard found in the international market. This project, however is designed to assist employment agencies in their bid to connect firms or organizations in need of some qualified individuals to fill up vacancies in their establishments and also to help the public to be well informed of such vacancies, hence the choice of the National Directorate of Employment as the suitable case study for this research project.
1.1 PROJECT BACKGROUND
This project is based on the gradual process of completely transferring the manual procedure of both managing and keeping track of information and data related to employment delivery. It is a project totally dedicated to the use of computes otherwise known as automation, to provide a faster, more reliable and accurate process of managing information that is greatly essential in the provision of employment by agencies working for the government or contracted by private bodies.
Computers these days are gradually being introduced into every sector of our daily lives and its use in managing database cannot be over emphasized computers have come a long way to replace human limitations such as the ability to perform series of repetitive activities without easily getting weary or entirely bored. It has saved human energy and performs its activities/functions much faster than the average man.
The few mention advantages and merits of automating (computerizing) certain activities over the usual manual way of carrying out similar activities, necessitated in making the researcher to propose and design a new system, which will entail the gradual change from the existing system of manually managing data to an automated system of the same procedure. This will culminate in the use of the computer to:
Process the data into information
Store the information and
Access the information at any given time and place whenever the need arises.
Although risks cannot be entirely ruled out when using an automated system, they are however minimal and highly reduced to the lowest level when qualified personnel are left to manage and administer the system.
