Problem Background
Our project revolves around empowering high school students to make well-informed career choices by bridging the knowledge gap. Through our user-friendly platform, we provide virtual training opportunities, foster engaging discussions, offer mentorship possibilities, and keep students informed about relevant meetups. We've embarked on a journey of understanding our users through interviews and refined our platform iteratively.
"How can we effectively inform individuals about the diverse range of global opportunities and empower them to make informed decisions when selecting their career paths?"
Pain Points


Lack of Direction:

Many individuals, including high school students, lack clear guidance on how to achieve their career goals and what steps to take. They often struggle to determine the best path to pursue their aspirations.


Unclear Roadmaps:

Even if someone has a career goal in mind, they often lack a clear roadmap or actionable steps to reach it, leading to uncertainty and frustration.


First-Rate Materials

We have strict standards when it comes to what we produce and never compromise on quality. This is especially true when it comes to the first-rate materials we use. Our customers deserve the highest level of products on the market, and we work tirelessly to maintain those standards.


Inaccurate Career Assessments

Common methods like career quizzes and aptitude tests often provide inaccurate results, leaving individuals with misleading information about their ideal career paths.

EdJourney is a personalized career exploration app that helps users uncover career opportunities, offers tailored guidance, connects with mentors, and provides valuable resources to make informed decisions about their career paths.

Diving Deeper in the Process
Formative Research
To empathize with our potential users, we chose to conduct user interviews. Once we had a clear idea of the problem our target users were facing, we brainstormed as a team and came up with potential solutions to solve the problem. Out of a pool of ideas, we finalized 4-5 ideas, combined them to create a single solution and created user flows and information architecture for the same. tell this in a better ways
After conducting in-depth interviews with a diverse group of participants, including a high school student, two college students, and a working professional, our research unveiled the very real challenges people face when seeking career guidance. 
What we found was that individuals often turn to online courses in their quest for direction, only to discover they receive information on 'what' to do but not the crucial 'how' to achieve their goals. Our insights shed light on a significant gap in guidance and practical solutions for those navigating their career paths.
Not all high school students are deeply concerned about their career paths. I realized that I enjoy front-end work more than data structures. Exploring different paths is key to discovering one's preferences.

To fully explore the landscape of possibilities, we engaged in three intensive brainstorming sessions. During these sessions, our primary objective was to extract the very best ideas from our team members. Subsequently, we translated these insights into refined screens and meticulously crafted user flows to create an optimal user experience.
I wanted to ensure that I considered all the significant aspects of our problem statement when choosing solutions. We are planning to provide solutions to our users where they can connect with mentors, have training sessions to get real-world experiences, get informed about meet-ups, have segments for particular professions and have a community to ask any questions related to their careers as it addressed all the problems that primary and secondary research suggested the target users are encountering while also being economically, socially, and technically feasible.

We created the high fidelity in Figma to accurately represent the final application. This allowed us to ensure that our design met the users' needs and that the users could use the design effectively. We used a dark theme user interface since dark UI is gentler for the eyes than blue light.
