Student Athletes at WPI (Worcester Polytechnic Institute) generally establish great connections with their current teammates; thus, while transitioning out of college and searching for jobs and internships, connections with former athletes and alumni are great resources for finding opportunities for work. Currently, these connections are facilitated by the team's coaches. In general, alumni working for companies that have positions open reach out to the coach and the coach forwards the opportunity to their team. An application specifically designed for helping make connections between former and current WPI Athletes would help create a tighter community and empower our students to get access to employment opportunities. The goal of this MQP is to create an athlete-oriented web networking application named Goatconnect to help student athletes on the football team get access to employment opportunities.
