An online recruitment system recommends jobs for a candidate according to his profile and can also act in reverse, recommending more qualified candidates for a particular job. Defining which variables will be used impacts directly the recommendation quality so that, when using the most important variables, we have a better assertiveness in the process. The goal of this work is to select the most important features of an online recruitment database using feature selection techniques. More specifically, we used the algorithms of Mitra, SUD and ACA to perform feature selection. The datasets used were derived from the original dataset assuming three distinct scenarios: the dataset containing the attributes related with the jobs' features; the dataset containing the bag of words of the description feature of the jobs; and the dataset resulting from the union of the two previous ones. The features' subsets selected in each of the above scenarios had their performance evaluated in a clustering task. The results obtained in each scenario show a performance gain of the clustering process when feature selection is made over the original data. Also, it was observed that the jobs' features result in better performance than the other two cases.
