An opportunities page allows students to quickly navigate through a series of job opportunities (tailored to their interests). They can apply to jobs with a single swipe, hide jobs, or save to review later. Users can set up a CV, including previous work and activities and accomplishments from their time at university.

Web Portal

A web portal can be accessed by businesses and university staff, to advertise positions or review applications. The app collects feedback from both the employer and the employee which translates into rewards and achievement badges.
