MIS 333K, affectionately known as "Killer K", is one of the hardest classes in the MIS major. Students take on a semester long group project with a list of requirements that few groups even come close to completing. Groups pull all nighters as the deadline approaches, hoping to finish as much of the requirements as possible.
Longhorn Recruiting handled the entire university recruiting process. Some of the recruiter functionality included creating job applications, inviting students to interviews, and creating block room reservations for their interviews. Some of the student functionality included applying to jobs, scheduling interviews, and getting email notifications based on hiring decisions.
What we did
We were given a large set of sample data that we needed to parse and ETL into our Azure database. I had to quickly learn VBA to extract tons of data from multiple data sources. We built Longhorn Recruiting on the ASP.NET framework, used the Entity Framework for our object-relation mapping, and Identity to handle user management. We used Bootstrap to create our entire UI, and all application logic was written in C#.
This project was one of my favorite things about the MIS degree and will forever remain one of my core college memories. My group and I worked really hard throughout the semester and were very proud of our final solution. We ended up securing 6th place out of 33 teams.
