A Website for North South University Department of Career and Professional Development Services (CPDS) Presented By, Naieem Khan-041 079 044 Raihan Ahmed Dip-062 284 042
Introduction • Every year around 500-600 students graduate from North South University; after graduating they seek for an internship and ultimately a secured job. • To help in this NSU has CPDS . However, CPDS has to process around 150-200 resumes every semester . • Since they do not have a dynamic web page; perform their tasks manually. So, in order to work efficiently they need a dynamic website.
Introduction (Contd.) • Purpose: • Create an automated system, which is more dynamic, autonomous and extremely user interactive for NSU CPDS • Scope: • Dedicated website to provide all essential job lists and career functionalities • Extra Features: • Student registration, student survey, seminar sign up, workshop sign up, job list search etc will be included
Inspiration towards this project • We have been inspired to create a website for CPDS by looking at the growing dependence of graduate students on CPDS for internship and job opportunities. • This website will help to keep the student resumes updated. • Student resumes will be able to reach various companies on time. • Want to reduce the hassle of making hard copies of resumes.
System Overview CPDS will be able perform the following tasks using this website: • Career Workshop/s on IMPORTANT issues like, “Resume/CV Writing and How to Prepare the Best Cover Letter” • Internship Orientation • Recruitment • Corporate Presentations by Companies like, grameenphone, Standard Chartered Bank (SCB), British American Tobacco Bangladesh Ltd (BATB), MGH Group, MaerskSealand Bangladesh Ltd, Eastern Bank Limited, BRAC Bank, HSBC Bank, bracNet, Westin Hotel etc. • Providing career services • Career Counseling for fresh graduates • Making Graduate Survey • Finding International Opportunities (for placement)
System Overview (Contd.) Students of NSU will get the following facilities from this website: • Students completed over 80 credits can register. • Students who completed over 80 credits will be able to post resume for part-time jobs. • Student who completed over 100 credits will be able to post resume for full time jobs. • Updating resumes. • Uploading resumes as a word/pdf file. • Signing-up for upcoming workshops and trainings. • Attending a graduate survey. • Searching for part-time and full time jobs using a search engine. • Applying for international intern exchange services (AIESEC). • Applying for on campus jobs: Department based part-time jobs, jobs in Information Services (IS) department • Getting information about the top employers.
Technology Considered • Browsers: Internet Explorer, Mozilla Fire Fox • Front-end design: Dreamweaver, Macromedia Flash • Back-end design: My-SQL • Connectivity: PHP 5 using XAMPP
Challenges • The challenges that we are facing at present: • Designing the database (E-R diagram, Relational Schema diagram & Empty Tables) and State chart • Designing the state chart diagram, was not possible due to shortage of time • Choosing a standard format, design or template for the front-end • Integrating all the requirements, since the structure is huge
Conclusion • We hope that we would be able to build a professional website for CPDS • CPDS will be able to provide better services to fresh graduates and the students will be greatly benefitted from the website • By creating this successful website using the proper design architectures, we believe in future we will be able to create dynamic software. • By doing this project we hope to have a concise idea about Software Engineering regarding how to solve real life problems.
