uToronto students develop platform to help student job seekers

April 13, 2012

A new patent-pending platform created by a pair of University of Toronto computer engineering students pledges to take students' social networking and learning skills and turn them into possible job leads. CoursePeer is a social academic network and talent management platform through which students can connect, share knowledge, get help and assist others, and get career opportunities delivered to them based on their activities. Professors can use CoursePeer to manage classes, interact with students to answer their questions, recommend their contributions, and monitor the statistics of their courses. The program is already active for students and professors, with the component for employers to launch this fall. CoursePeer will allow employers to post job openings and receive smart suggestions for suitable candidates. uToronto News
