We are students from Temasek Polytechnic who are currently studying the Diploma in Financial Business Informatics. We are going to go through our Student Internship Programme in one year’s time and we are starting to look for internship openings. However, we saw a report regarding a skills gap in the accountancy and finance sector despite a huge amount of professionals available in the accountancy and finance sector.
What it does
Therefore, we built FA Hub to tackle this issue. FA Hub is a mobile application that allows individuals to find jobs from the accountancy sector, and also sign up for training programmes that can upgrade their skills and competency inside the accountancy sector. Also, training vendors and companies are able to advertise their programmes and job openings in the app so that users are able to take notice of what is happening.
How we built it
We used Ionic 4 to build a webapp, and used Google Firebase to store the necessary information into the database.
Challenges we ran into
Due to the lack of knowledge about the accounting role, we faced difficulties in identifying what kind of training and duties is expected of an accountant.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Even though we have a short time to create our product, we still managed to consult our teachers and conduct research about our topic. We are proud of creating an app using the skills that we have learned from school which is the framework we used, Ionic 4.
What we learned
We have gained insights of how we can use technology to help the accounting industry identify the skills of an applicant. Also, having only 10 days to complete our project, we learned how to manage our schedules better now.
What's next for FAHub
We plan to finalise the app and make improvements to enhance it. If possible, we would like to publish this app and set up a startup company of our own after we complete our studies.
