Union of Manufacturers and Businessmen of Armenia (UMBA), on behalf of associated companies, act as “buyers” of the e-recruitment services. Universities, will be in charge of providing “public contents” (graduate CVs). Firms and business organization involved in testing activities will be provided with username and password for accessing the system and download CV (up to 30 CV) according to their specific needs. At the end of the pilot, an ad hoc questionnaire to firms involved will be useful to evaluate system’ efficacy and collect suggestion for service’ ameliorating. Armenian National Student's Association through 1 focus group, will involve at least 10 students in assessing DB system.
