ProjectSet connects students with employers for remote project work, and provides them with an online workspace and tools for collaboration, execution and evaluation.
We do not actively match students to projects; however, we notify and encourage all students with relevant skills and interests to apply to each new opportunity. This way, we present a sizeable and relevant choice of candidates for the Employer to select the project team from. We help the right set of students and Employers to find each other.
Employers selects a project team primarily by reviewing and comparing online profiles of all applicants to the project post. Employers also have the option to message or interview specific applicants before finalising their selection.
In addition, Employers can also invite specific students and/ or mentors to join the project simply by filling in their email ids.
A student can withdraw her/ his application to a project before she/ he is selected by the Employer join the project team. However, a student cannot withdraw from a project team once she/ he has been selected by the Employer. In unavoidable circumstances, students are encouraged to speak to the Employer and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org; we will do our best to help.
We notify students immediately on their selection by an Employer. We email an Onboarding document to the team members with their contact details and guidelines for accessing the Project Studio (the online workspace for the project) as well as a suite of valuable training, tools and templates. We notify the Employer to connect directly with the team and kick-off the project.
Project teams can revise project scope and timeline at any point, with approval from the Employer. The project team has access to all tools and features during the extended duration of the project.
Employers, and/ or their nominated mentor, review and comment on the interim deliverables from students teams (through either online messages or online meetings) one or more times during the course of the project. This also help students to course-correct, where needed. Finally, employers offer each student a formal, structured feedback on completion of each project.
On conclusion of a project, the project team selects the final documents (deliverables) that need to be archived for future reference (these documents are uploaded and accessible to project team members on their dashboards). Subsequently, the Employer records feedback for each member of the team and terminates access to the project studio (online workspace) to formally mark the closure of the project.
An Employer can terminate a project anytime. However, we strongly recommend Employers to post only confirmed projects that they are sure to undertake and discourage withdrawal of projects, notably ones for which students have already been selected. Premature termination of projects adversely impacts Employer’s reputation among the student community. ProjectSet does not refund any fees paid for projects that are prematurely terminated.
