After graduating from school, many young people are still undecided about their
occupational career. Some of them already have concrete ideas they wish to accomplish,
or they aim to start a successful career in the industry. Hungary’s largest
mentoring organization has been founded to support ambitious graduates with such
ideas and aims. The members of the mentoring organization include successful CEOs
and entrepreneurs, eager to help young graduates accomplish their goals.
Smartphones have established in the digital market for over a decade and are
among the most important technical devices. As a result, software only optimized
for desktop computers is becoming more and more obsolete for everyday users.
In my thesis, I have created an Android-based implementation of an existing
web-based platform, supporting the pairing of mentors with the most appropriate
ambitious graduates. In particular, I designed and developed a user-friendly modular
Android application, which is based on state-of-the-art technology.
The release of my application was announced on a mentor conference, which resulted
in more than 70 new installations within a week after the conference. Since
then, my application has successfully replaced the previous web-based solution and
became the primary contact platform of the mentoring organization.
