Inspiration 💡

Have you ever been rejected after an interview wishing you knew what went wrong or what you could have done better?

All of us have failed interviews in the past only to have little memory of how they went and ways to improve. We even attempt to record our interviews, but don’t have the intention of reviewing them afterwards. Prior to every interview, we open up the same documents to prepare, and without a central location to find past information about companies or positions, we become more overwhelmed and disorganized. As first-year university students, it is daunting to approach the interview process with little guidance, and constant rejection is demotivating for everyone. Therefore, we created Intelliview.

What it does 📁

Intelliview is a comprehensive platform that stores job applications, past interviews, and advice for students to effectively prepare for future interviews at their dream company.

Our framework encourages meaningful progress for improvement with every interview:

  • Record and transcribe your live interview questions and answers
  • Reflect on your responses and jot down your next steps
  • Revamp your approach and prepare for your next interview with organization and clarity

Intelliview makes it easy to navigate through applications featuring a kanban board and simplifies the interview process to increase actionable insights and reduce recruiting stress.

How we built it 💻

Intelliview was first brainstormed and designed in Figma. After creating the prototype, we developed a responsive web application. The backend is built using Python along with the Google Cloud API in order to record and transcribe audio during interviews. Flask integrates the code to the front-end, where the platform is displayed on web pages created using React, HTML and CSS.

Challenges we ran into 👊

It was our first time working with recording audio in Python, so it took more time to configure its functions and integrate it onto the front end. There was also a learning curve with the new tools that we incorporated in our project, such as Flask and React, but we built upon each other’s past experiences and strengths to ensure everyone was making progress.

Accomplishments that we're proud of 🏅

As university students, we’re proud to have created an accessible all-in-one platform that we can all benefit from, especially as virtual interviews are becoming more prevalent. We’re excited that our final project has a strong UI design, as we effectively delegated the tasks to prioritize design and have each team member work on their own component based on their strengths.

What we learned 📚

Throughout the hackathon, we became more knowledgeable about working with recordings, transcriptions, and connecting the back-end with the front-end. It was interesting to see how various languages and frameworks were used together to create the final project! We also learned how to work efficiently as a team and use Git for collaboration.

What's next for Intelliview ➡️

Developing more features! We hope to build the backend of more web pages and incorporate more features, such as filtering for positions and searching within transcripts, for interview prep to be even more effective. We’d like to create a community and introduce collaboration between users, where they can share interview questions and do mock interviews.
