PIC staff match students and employers based on available opportunities and student interests and skillset. However, staff did not have a formalized digital system for matching, making it difficult to maintain equity in the student pool of applicants as well as operationalize the workfow.

With my help leading the design process, the PIC created an online application for high school students interested in getting a job through the program. The application asks students about job/career interests and previous work experience. The application launched in early 2019 and reached over 400 students within a month.
