The aim of this research is to integrate analysis through case studies on how knowledge sharing could be implemented successfully. Furthermore, this study also will clarify a conceptualisation that provides a new understanding of the relationship between unemployed graduates and the human capital concept. This paper used web documentation for the research technique, and an interpretive approach was used as the research paradigm. Two online recruitment agency sites were analysed thoroughly, and a qualitative analysis was made on them. The connections show how knowledge sharing can be used as a medium to help unemployed graduates to get jobs through online recruitment agencies. An online recruitment agency can help fresh graduates to find good jobs because most of the agencies have thousands of corporate clients. High quality candidates must have good soft skills, problem-solving skills and employable value-added skills to get the best jobs. This study will look at how far online recruitment agencies can better assist new graduates to get the best job for them. The findings will be expressed as qualitative results from the two online recruitment agencies researched as the case studies for the paper. From these case studies, the findings will contribute to the ongoing study on how to implement knowledge sharing among undergraduates after they finished their studies.
