Inspiration

Because of COVID-19, a lot of people become unemployed due to the necessary lockdowns. We wanted to help match those who are unemployed to small businesses that might need their assistance. It benefits both parties as it is a fast way for employers

What it does

Using Google Cloud and Google's Direction API, we were able to filter possible employees that are close and ready for the job. Their contact information and resume will easily be shown to the business owners and the owners/managers will be able to look and decide to contact the possible employee.

How we built it

Using Flask and Python, we were able to create a dynamic website that shows all the possible job listings on the website. Flask also helped with account management with users and separation of services between the employers versus the possible employees. All data was stored in an SQLite3 database. Bootstrap and CSS were used to make the front end of the website look better.

Challenges we ran into

Time constraint was a really big challenge since our idea was a lot to do considering our experiences. Two of the teammates were also first-timers in the hackathon community.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Designing the backend was an achievement since it took a lot of effort. The use of CSS and other technologies to make the front end better was also an achievement as it took a lot of time.

What we learned

The architecture of server-side code was an interesting topic to get experience on and it was definitely fun, to say the least.
