2. Problem Statement
Happy go get them recent graduate looking for a
1st job needs a way to apply to different job
offers because applying is tiring and confusing
3. Most pratical idea
On the job training during University – the idea
is to give students the possibility to actually try

job” and all the stress

site is very clear
What could be improved? (-)
• Not clear that it isn’t an internship at
the end of the course
• It’s limited to the companies already
“explored” by the universities; This list
should be constantly updated;
• When are students supposed to start
this “professional” experience? During
the course? After?

offered by the University?

7. Written Reflection
What did I learned by testing the prototypes?
What would I do next if I were to continue working on the project?
First of all, I realised that my sketching abilities are not as bad as I thought; Also that
without some text it is very difficult to convey an idea simply through sketching.
The ideas were well received and some interesting questions regarding their
viability and day to day implementation and maintenance were raised
I would should one of the ideas (probably the “Jobee House”), so I could do a more
extensive research among the students and collect their feedback in order to improve
the idea and the prototype, making it presentable to Universities and companies.
Afterwards I would go and talk directly with possible partners and see what their
feedback, questions, ideas and suggestions were.
