Opportunity analysis project

  1. 1. The A-Team Idea: Help simplify the process of working abroad Solution: Job portal that only contains jobs willing to hire foreigners & a service that solves immigration issues
  2. 2. What we did Surveyed both NovoEd students and mentors • We believed NovoEd students were ideal starting points to target since many are international students and would probably like to enhance their learning, skills, and experience by working abroad • Some were interested in working abroad (job seekers) • And some were interested in hiring employees (employers)
  3. 3. What we learned • The value proposition wasn’t clear enough and there were questions about our uniqueness • Job seekers liked the look, design, images and the map view navigation • Job seekers would be interested in living and working abroad and thus interested in our idea • Job seekers would pay to solve the immigration issues to working abroad but will not pay to use a search portal to find work abroad • Employers sample size was too small to draw significant conclusion (more inquiry would be needed)
  4. 4. Sample Snapshot of Survey Results
  5. 5. Interesting Insight Question 13 – What steps would you take if you were to look for work abroad? Answer – Most popular steps: 1. Pick a country you want to work in 2. Search for a job 3. Determine if you are legally able to work in that country 4. Apply for the job Possible implication – Where people work may be more important than what work they do
  6. 6. What we may do next • Because our survey sample size was small we would need to continue researching and inquiring • Our challenge going forward would be for employers to value our work enough to give us the time to provide valuable feedback • Developing a functional prototype would be on hold until we gain greater insight to both job seekers and employers – Understand their needs, wants, desires, motivations, problems, challenges, etc.
