Time is the most valuable thing in the world. With so many job posting sites, it is quite easy to lose the track of time while applying. Such a long term repetitive work also causes exhaustion. To allow a student avail all the opportunities available to them, we have developed an app that will do all of the hard work.
What it does
The app requires minimal user interaction. A user only need to enter their details, resume, and set their preferences. When they click that SUBMIT button, it takes all that data and applies to the jobs that align with the user's liking.
How we built it
Our team used Python for backend and utilized Angular for frontend.
Challenges we ran into
There are so many job boards available. It was quite difficult to pull data from such chaos. However, the main challenge was figuring out the application procedure. Although the job applications require similar information, the way these take input varies a lot. Our software engineering skills, our expertise in algorithms and data structures, and our problem solving capabilities helped us tackle this challenge.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
As students, we know how troubling and frustrating searching and applying for jobs can be. With the help the help of this app, anyone can do job applications in a breeze. We are glad that we have developed such a platform.
What we learned
We learned how to categorize complex data for simplifying tasks in chaotic environments.
What's next for Job seeking and automatic applying application
We would love to see this on mobile platforms. Nowadays, people spend most of their time on their phones. Being on mobile platforms would allow us to serve a broader user base.
