Started With Execution
This status is like your confirmation to the mentor and OysterConnect.com that you have started working on the project.
Completed - Pending Mentor Approval
When you have completed the project deliverables, you should update your Live Project status from "Started With Execution" to "Completed - Pending Mentor Approval". Once you do this, the mentor will be asked to approve your request. At the same time, the mentor will also be asked to leave a KSA rating (Knowledge, Skills and Aptitude score) and a skill recommendation for you. Once he/she leaves the recommendation, your certificate gets generated instantly and you will receive a notificaton for the same.
This status is set automatically by the system once the mentor approves your completion request. You will receive an email once the mentor approves your completion request.
Not working on this project anymore/Dropped
If you are not working on a project you were selected to, you should update your Live Project status from "Selected" to "Not working on this project anymore". This tells the selection system that you are available to work on other projects.
Why should I keep my Live Project Status Updated?
The OysterConnect.com proprietary Selection Process does not give preference to students working on 2 or more projects. This is keeping in mind that you have a full academic schedule as well. Hence, it is important to keep your profile on OysterConnect.com updated to indicate how many projects are you actively working on.
Moreover, your certificate processing will start only after you have indicated that you have completed a project and the mentor has approved your completion request, leaving you a KSA rating and skill recommendation.
