Built with several tools, most notably:

What does this app do?

The primary motivation of this app was to streamline the job search process for graduates, students, and others seeking entry-level jobs in the tech industry. There are several job board sites out there, and I personally found it difficult to navigate between them to find suitable jobs to apply for. I hope that as I continue to develop this app and add more sources that I can help job-seekers break into the tech industry easier.

Future Goals

There are several features that I aspire to add to this application, most notably:

  • Add several more external job sites
  • Implement advanced filtering techniques (e.g. filters based on locations, job types, etc.)
  • Add futher interaction with user accounts, saved jobs, lists etc.

The current deployed application is definetly the minimum viable product and as such these features offer several routes to expand and develop the application further. If you want to be involved in anyway, please dm me and we can discuss development!
