Disrupting the gap between student and employment


The Project

The way university attendance is managed is stuck in the paper age. From signing into lectures, checking your timetable, applying for jobs or taking advantage of exclusive offers. Signin follows university life and builds up a living profile for the student to use to apply for internships and grad roles.


I’m currently Head of Design, overseeing all things creative in the ambitious startup.


The premise

Relying on regular applications tests and printed CVs, employers may miss out on their potential best hires by only focusing on the cold hard facts when reviewing applicants. Signin adds only the classic CV by following the student through their university life, building a profile that’s more well rounded.


Following University Life

No more wrongly missing lectures because the register wasn’t taken. Students can sign into their lectures through the app. This logs their attendance into their profile and allows them to access lecture material and reading lists through Amazon affiliate links.


Designing an accompanying employer’s dashboard

Using the idea of a Kanban board to make applicant handling more efficient and easier, I designed the functionality and visual design of an employment dashboard to be used by Signin’s exclusive roster of client employers.

Given the success across various universities and business in the UK and Australia during the validations and testing phases, Signin is evolving it’s design and app to launch a fully-formed student resource in the very near future. Watch this space!
