Job Shadowing experiences are difficult for students to get. For example, often times pre-med students will try to contact as many doctor offices as they can to land a job shadowing opportunity and this approach is often time consuming and doesn't yield results.
What it does
Professionals who are willing and eager to have students job shadow them can register on our platform. Students who are looking for opportunities will be matched to professionals who are working in the field they want to get into.
How we built it
We used Glitch.com and used HTML and CSS to design the website.
Challenges we ran into
We wanted to create an algorithm that will match the students to the professionals using their responses but since we have no experience in Java Script this was too difficult to do within 24 hours. Glitch also kept crashing through out the night which made it harder to code.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're proud that we were able to create a website in such a limited amount of time. We're also proud of how we were able to communicate and work on this remotely.
What we learned
We gained a better understanding of HTML and CSS. We also learned how to code collaboratively since we are used to coding individually.
What's next for Job ShadowX
We want to gain a better understanding of Java Script to make the website more interactive and we want to implement a algorithm that will match professionals to students based on their responses.
