Looking for a job is not fun and can be very time consuming if you are dealing with different career portals. They’re all looking for the same results; however, the difference is how they collect the candidate’s information.

In the past couple of years, I’ve been getting feedback from friends and family members about poor experience when they were looking for a job online. Lately I decided to put it to the test and started my journey to look for a new career.
I started out using a few popular websites and soon enough I was getting discouraged. So, I decided to create a dynamic user dashboard for all job hunters out there. It’s called “iHawk Career.”
To start, I prepared a simple questionnaire based on my findings and past feedback. I reached out to 16 people to interview and talk about their challenges when they were looking for a job.
Based on their responses, I was able to create my Persona, and gathered some issues and recommendations to improve the user experience.
Now I was able to come up with a few deliverable solutions and at the same time renovate existing features.
I don’t start any project without sketching first. I spend a long time drawing on the paper or on my iPad whenever I’m on the road and a new idea comes up.
After whiteboarding and throwing away a bunch of approaches, I moved onto making high fidelity wireframes.
Here we have a few screens of some important features and improvements.
Participants will perform tasks and information will be collected to identify problems or issues with the interface and why these issues arise. The goal here is to make sure the client utilization of a product meets the desired user experience.
