Final Project Report



     With the advent of the gig economy and a record 36% of Americans now being involved in it, the time is now to bring college students into the fold and provide companies and small businesses with highly-specialized, low cost labor for short term tasks and projects. For students, the most important motivation for working while in school is getting experience in their field that they can market to future employers when seeking full-time employment after graduation. This is advantageous for companies because they can offer in-field work to students without having to pay for normal consultancy prices. We want to provide a platform to connect these two groups together to provide value for both students and companies. Our platform will act as the mediator between the two parties, hosting jobs available from companies and student profiles, and handle all payment and work submission processes as well as messaging. We plan to use modern web development tooling to help us make this platform as engaging and interactive as possible.
