Make it in the North puts the north of the Netherlands on the map. Their mission is to make the labor market in the three northern provinces more international. And they want to make the North an (even) more attractive place to work. Make it in the North shows what the north has to offer and which innovative companies operate here. The platform built by ICIT contains vacancies, career events and everything else that is happening in the north.
Keeping international in the region
Many of the (international) students who study here usually leave the region after their studies. Make it in the North wants these students to stay in the region. This by presenting the labor market in Friesland, Groningen and Drenthe in a unique way. This is an ideal way for the talents to find work, but regional companies can also internationalize more and make the North stronger.
A catalyst in the north
The wish was a platform where these two parties come together. A platform that acts as a catalyst to get buzz in the north. Where vacancies, studies, news and events come together. ICIT has set up a platform in a Symphony framework by means of new techniques such as Angular and GraphQL. This allows companies to easily put themselves on the map and share their vacancies.
And they literally put themselves on the map. The developed system puts companies and vacancies on a map, making it easier for applicants to search for suitable jobs by location. In addition, companies can start a simple application process through the automatically generated application form. If a company already has this on his or her own website, it is also possible to link to it.
Full development with an Agile approach
At ICIT we have worked hard on the first phase and are proud of the result that is online at www.makeitinthenorth.nl. Make it in the North will carry out their mission with the platform and the first events and applications have already taken place. Because ICIT works ‘Agile‘, we continue to develop Make it in the North together and many more features will be added in the future, so that they can achieve their goal even better.
