A university-wide job portal for young professionals
Duration: 4 weeks
Context: University Course (Human Computer Interaction)
Tools Used: Figma, Miro,
Role: Usability Testing, UI/UX
Work experience is such a numbers game. The more you have it the better. For our HCI sprint, we chose to look at consolidating university resources.
But our quick research showed students are more invested in their lives outside of school. Hence we focused on work experiences
Mapping the various personas, and exploring our career placement team, informed our strategy.
We created a university specific job portal, that focuses on internship and freelance gigs for students of all disciplines.
We conducted simple tests to get usability feedback from fellow students. As time permitted that is as far as this project was taken.
See the entire project below
"Four years is a long time to not get an opportunity to test your skills in the industry."
This was a shared notion between all the primary research we conducted within our university. Students wanted opportunities, wanted to see how the industry worked and if their education was actually helping them
So, we set to make that happen.
