MetPlus

MetPlus is a non-profit that aim to help the people of Detroit, and hopefully Michigan, to find a job that suits them. The vision of the client is to create one application(PETS) that would allow the users to find the a job and for companies to find employers.


Public Employment Tracking System – P.E.T.S

The PETS system is a web platform where the Job Seekers and the Companies can find each other. The platform will try to match all the skills of the Job Seekers and the skills needed by the Companies creating a pool of possible Jobs or Candidates.

Goals

  • Help Job Seekers to find their next job
  • Help Companies to find the more suitable Employer from the pool of Job Seekers
  • Make job application easier online and also when a Job Fair is in place
  • Allow the organization to better help and track the Job Seekers
  • Create a Pool of jobs that match the Job Seeker skills
  • Create a Pool of people that match the Skills of a specific job

Why PETS?

In the web currently there are hundreds of websites that allow you to post and search for jobs why do another one?

  • The client want to ensure the job offers are legitimate.
  • The client currently help people find jobs and needed one application that would allow him to organize better the search.
  • The client currently help people that do not have a Resume or that are not tech-savvy  and the non-profit will fill all forms and help them search for a job that matches their skills. For this task it is better to have a backend were they can store all the information.
  • On Job Fair's sponsored by the client or by the State, the client wanted to allow a easier connection method between Job Seekers and Companies. To archive this Job Seeker would just need to go to the Company stand and give their email and the Company would be able to take that person into consideration
  • The client wanted an platform that allowed him to track the Job applications, to better understand if the Job Seeker is trying to get a Job that we cannot have and also to ensure the answer from the Company will be as swift as possible
Could this be archived with other tools? Maybe using more then one tool we might archive this, but the idea is to have it all centralized in a way.
