Empowering Aspiring Professionals: Stand Out, Kickstart Your Career, and Find Mentorship for Success


The Product

Starjob is the go-to platform for first-gen immigrants and college graduates, offering career mentorship, cultural integration tips, and job opportunities. Fuel your career growth with expert guidance and valuable resources for success.

The Project

The problem

Immigrants and college students with no work experience lack a place to jumpstart their careers, find a mentor, and land their first job.

The goal

Design an app that will:​

  • Provide access to mentors in different careers

  • Improve the job search and labor integration of new/foreign workers 

  •  Provide resume, portfolio, and interview critique services.


Empowering Career Growth and Cultural Integration through Mentorship

Understanding the user

I conducted user interviews where most interview participants reported feeling overwhelmed looking for a job and anxious because they were not sure how the process works in their new country. The feedback received through research made it very clear that users would be open to having a mentor to help them feel integrated into the culture and guide them to find a job with an easy-to-use tool.

Competitive audit

1. Provided access to users who are visually impaired through adding alt text to images for screen readers.

2. Use of icons and text to help make navigation easier.




Users shared that the app made them feel confident applying to job offers. One quote from peer feedback was that “Starjob app makes me feel secure and positive from start to that I’m qualified for what I love to do.”

What I learned

While designing the Starjob app, I learned how important it is to create all screen sizes to have the best experience for the users.

Next steps

1. Conduct research on how successful the app is in reaching the goal.

2. Add more educational and guidance resources for users looking for jobs and to prepare them for future interviews.
