Abstract: Prediction is a conjecture about something which may happen. Prediction need not be based upon the previous knowledge or experience on the unknown event of interest in the future. But it is a necessity for mankind to foresee and make the right decisions to live better. Every person does predictions but the quality of the predictions differs and that differentiates successful persons and unsuccessful persons. In order to automate the prediction process and to make quality predictions available to every person, machines are trained to make predictions and such field comes under machine learning and later on deep learning algorithms. Various fields such as health care, weather forecasting, natural calamities, and crime prediction are some of the applications of prediction. The researchers have applied the field of prediction to see whether a model can predict the employability of a candidate in a recruitment process. Organizations use human expertise to identify a skilled candidate for employment based on various factors and now these organizations are trying to migrate to automated systems by harnessing the benefits of the exponential growth in the area of machine learning and deep learning. This investigation presents the development of a model to predict the employability by using Logistic Regression. A set of candidates was tested in the proposed model and results are discussed in this paper.
