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 to 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”
1. USER RESEARCH
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.
Base on their response, I was able to create my Persona, gather some issues and recommendations to improve the user experience.
2. TASK ANALYSIS
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 move onto making high fidelity wireframes.
Here we have a few screens of some important features and improvements.
6. USABILITY TESTING
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.
