Capstone Project Idea?

Veteran

David Roman Raleigh, NC

Using public data, what are questions that would be good to answer/investigate for a capstone project [that would be of interest to large employers]?

I'd be incorporating Microsoft Power Apps/BI and SQL Server.

David,

I would offer something in either the block chain and/or cryptocurrency domains as those areas seem to be screaming hot these days where a lot of pent up opportunity would appear to exist. That said, I do not know enough about either to suggest a specific question or question set.

John Moline maybe able to help with that

Good luck and happy hunting!

Most employers are very interested in the labor market - how they can attract talent. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics has publicly available data. In addition, it might be possible to get some anonymized data sets from Indeed, LinkedIn, or Monster.com.

Hi David,

Thank you for visiting ACP AdvisorNet! When it comes to finding a capstone project, I have several tips from my own experience choosing a topic:

- Look at your available sources before settling on a topic. Make sure that you will have enough information available to be able to really dive into the topic.
- Look at job listings in companies and positions that you are interested and work backwards from there. Which topics allow you to showcase the skills they are looking for?
- Choose something that YOU find interesting. You’re going to be spending a lot of time on this project, and it really shows when the writer is passionate about the subject.

You should also feel free to reach out to the many Advisors that we have in the Community section of ACP AdvisorNet. Many are available to message and are happy to help!

I’ve included some resources below that may provide some additional ideas / tips for your capstone:
