About this Project:

Our project addresses the low youth employment rate and helps first-time job finders with creating resumes, finding applicable jobs, and connecting businesses with eager individuals. We first came up with this idea when we saw many of our peers (including ourselves) struggle with finding jobs and also having no knowledge of how to create a good resume for a job. Our app has evolved as we conducted surveys and gathered information to see the user needs and if the people would like to have a job during their time in school. We first had the app to only connect companies to users and see if the user is interested in the company through their profile page. However, through our research and surveys we added more functions to our app like having the ability to make a resume, accessibility changes, and more. Our app can be accessed both online and on cell phones and it will be primarily built out of html,Css,java script, and some python. When the user first opens the application they will see an option to resume or create a new resume and a dash bar that transports the user to either their profile, inbox, or search bar. If the user does choose to create a new resume they would fill out questions and after finishing the questions, we would put the answer together and form a resume. The user would also be able to connect themselves with business through the search feature.

This is such a unique project and a very helpful one too. I know from experience that it is hard to make a resume and find the right job at such a young age, but I know this will help others as well.
