Wireframe Design Flow UI Design

Project Synopsis:
Search411’s objective is to match make companies and job applicants quickly and efficiently while saving cost. Our goal is to address these age-old headhunting problems – matching & qualifying a candidate. To achieve this goal, we need to match an applicant with the most suitable job by creating a holistic professional profile for applicants. My role as Senior Visual Designer is to digest and translate a set of complex solutions visually and create a wireframe for the mobile app developer.

The mobile app is designed for job applicants to help them to not only upload a resume, but to create a complete professional profile. The interface must be simple and easy to follow; the applicant can manage their profile efficiently.

Throughout my wireframing process, I was having the constraint of limited space, huge amount of data input and difficulty finding a way to organize the applicant profile. Building an applicant professional profile can be very complex and time-consuming due to large amount of details such as skill levels, specific work & intern experience, traits important to a position, interests, etc that need to be captured. The interface must not be intimidating, able to capture a basic set of profile and help cultivate a habit to frequently revisit to enrich their profile. The menu and flows must be optimized to fit all rich text information into a tiny screen. I spent time to plan the flow, find ways to cut down the data input time; choosing the right buttons and locations. Other solutions include applying complementary colors to categorize applicant profile. The clean fonts and simple graphics also helped to organize the information.
