The problem: Many UH computer science and engineering students want to learn about internship and job opportunities, but currently they must wait until a company decides to visit the campus or send out some sort of announcement. There is no efficient way for students to understand the “landscape” of internship and job opportunities that might be available in the future, so they can prepare for them now.
The solution: The Company Connector web application provides a new way for local and non-local companies who want to recruit students from UH to make their (potential) opportunities known to students. At the same time, students can create profiles on the site with their interests. The site can match students to employers and vice-versa.
Instead of sending out announcements each year, a company can create a page in the site that lists:
Students who visit the site can create a profile with their interests (skills), preferred geographic location, and link to their professional portfolio page.
Admins can monitor the site for inappropriate content, and create new categories of musical tastes, capabilities, and goals.
Note: if you choose this idea for your final project, you cannot name it “Company Connectro”. Come up with a different name for your final project.
Some mockup pages include:
Whether or not the following bullet points list all pages or not, the completed use case should show an end-to-end scenario of using the system.
After implementing the basic functionality, here are ideas for more advanced features:
