UNHack Challenge 7

Proposed by BEST (Artem Solovey)

How to create a system for University students to identify career opportunities based on their digital portfolio?

Challenge Summary:

Our University experience is much more than just going to class. We meet new people who can change our careers, participate in events that give us new perspectives, and get involved in things that matter to us. While we do all of this it is hard to keep track and store these experiences in a meaningful way. Wouldn’t it be great if everything you do in class and outside of class was documented in a personal portfolio that you can share with future employers, reflect on in the years to come, and have specialized jobs suggested for all the unique things you do.
