Each of us has had a friend recently inquire about how to build a resume and a personal website. While these two tasks may seem simple at first, creating both of these things is daunting and time-consuming. We also wanted to incorporate this idea with improving women and non-binary student engagement in tech-related recruitment.
What it does
Our website provides a resume and a personal website generator as well as important interview tips, study guides, and a quiz to test your knowledge.
How we built it
We used node.js and express.js for our back-end and HTML and CSS for our front-end. We convert user responses to a JSON object which is then processed into a pdf/HTML file.
Challenges we ran into
We were challenged by connecting the front-end to the back-end as well as compiling user information from an HTML form into a personal JSON object.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of being able to launch our project onto Heroku so that it is available for everyone to use!
What we learned
We learned how to collaborate on a GitHub repository quickly and efficiently. We also learned how to generate new files from user input.
What's next for RoseStart
We are planning on making more quizzes to test the user's knowledge, adding more personalization to the website generator, and adding a sign-up system so that recruiters can hire based on user's personal websites and resumes.
