This paper presents and elaborates about a mobile application being developed for a Higher Education Institution with the aim to get timely notifications of events, without missing the deadlines and receive job/internship opportunities on time floated by the Placement Team. This application has features for notifying and registering students for any upcoming college event and also makes it possible for the alumni to register themselves in the app so that their work/career profiles can be recorded. Both alumni and Placement Team can add any new internship and placement opportunity, visible to other users only after the admin validates it. There are many technologies available for developing any app that is cross-platform compatible; one such technology is flutter framework. Flutter is an open-source UI software development kit (SDK) used to develop cross-platform applications for Android, iOS, Linux, macOS, Windows, etc. We used flutter SDK for the frontend, NodeJS for backend, and MongoDB for database. A prototype is presented in this paper showing the main features of the application. The results of a preliminary study with the application are positive and reveal that students are excited to use the application and they will use the application on a regular basis when it becomes available.
