About the Project

Description

Actually one of the most unprotected segment right now is the recent bootcamp graduates. Unlike the recently laid off, most of them could not apply for unemployment benefit as they were not previously working fulltime and they were focusing on the rigorous bootcamp. Now, after graduating, they have used up all their savings to pay for bootcamp classes and was hoping to get a job after they graduate but the market is no longer the same. Usually how most of these graduate get their foot in the door is by getting discovered from attending career fairs and networking events, as they don't stand a chance applying online on traditional platforms. Without Covid it was already hard enough for them to get discovered and noticed compared to a 4yr degree program graduate. And now with in-person networking events and career fair gone due to Covid-19, its near impossible for them to get the visibility they need towards a job. We are creating a platform specially to help them get discovered by companies. Already talked to many people, companies and bootcamps, it is a real problem without a solution at the moment. In fact it is such a big pain that several companies and bootcamps have even reached out to us organically through our initial beta signup ad which was originally meant for the job-seekers.

Already have almost 1000 candidates signed up that need placing in companies. Have companies and bootcamps reaching out to us for help. Need help completing the platform and placing them.

Biggest need: Experienced senior engineers, Product Managers(Agile/Scrum ideally)
Tech stack, MEAN/MERN : Mongo, Express, Angular/React , Node
