Work Readiness Skills Tool
Brotherhood of St Laurence, Melbourne Australia, Jan - May 2018
I collaborated with three other students and members of an Australian nonprofit to build a web application that allows underpriviledged youth to assess their skills and identify industries that align with their talents. Our final report can be found here.
We used Node.js to build the web server and deployed it using AWS EC2. We used several other Amazon services including DynamoDB for data storage and Cognito for authentication.
Youth can assess their abilities in 10 key areas
In addition to coding, we conducted extensive research and focus groups with youth to help guide development of the tool, and user testing to determine how user-friendly the final product was.
