We created a python project that will be suggesting a career best fit for the user based on their personality traits and interests.
During our hackathon project planning session, my teammates and I discussed our educational backgrounds, career aspirations, and personal interests. One common theme that emerged was that, although we all had a strong desire to pursue careers in the tech industry, we were unsure about which specific domain would be the best fit for us. To address this challenge, we developed a career quiz that leverages users' interests to recommend potential tech career paths that align with their preferences and offer the highest likelihood of success. Our hope is that this tool will assist others who, like us, struggle to identify the best career path in the tech field based on their interests.
When the project is executed, it utilizes the ur program's preset skills and prompts the user to indicate whether those skills apply to them by entering "yes" or "no". After the user has provided their preferences, the program sorts through each career incorporated into it, and identifies the overlap between the user's preferences and the required skills for each career. Finally, the program produces a list of careers that align with the user's preferences and are deemed the best fit for them.
Our team utilized a user-friendly interface called RepLit to create a project in a programming language called Python. RepLit is a cloud-based development environment that enabled us to collaborate and build projects together in a single platform. With RepLit, we were able to easily share and work on their projects in real-time.
As freshmen, this was our team's first hackathon, which meant that we didn't have a lot of experience coding in the environment. This can be a challenging experience, as hackathons often require teams to work quickly and efficiently in a new setting. However, it was an excellent opportunity to learn new skills and techniques, as well as to collaborate with others who have different backgrounds and perspectives. By participating in this hackathon, our team likely gained valuable experience and knowledge that will benefit our in future coding projects.
We are really proud of creating our project using the skills we gained in our classes and finishing the project on time especially as it was our first hackathon project.
We learned a lot of new skills and how to code in different environment. Through this hackathon we were not only able to enhance our programming skills but also develop our critical thinking, problem solving, communication, and collaboration skills.
To develop our project even further we would like to potentially add algorithms that sort through the data collected through other web browsers to suggest potential careers to our users for more accuracy.
