Abstract
In Kenya, youth unemployment rate is 80% of the unemployed population. These are people between the ages of 18 to 35 years. In most households where parents are working, it is very hectic to get a reliable and suitable household employer to take care of their homes when they are away working. Linking the unemployed population to prospective employers in the informal sector is therefore very necessary. This write up gives details of a job listing user friendly web application, created to connect the two parties (working parents & unemployed youth), easily and reliably. The application builds on techniques that have been employed in existing solutions. The uniqueness of the application is the fact that it uses google maps to locate vacancies and job seekers who are using the application. Development and user testing were conducted to evaluate the usability of the application and to make sure that the application meets the listed requirements.
