Furthermore, I managed a contract illustrator to produce 20 illustrations for our initial communities and created illustrations myself for blank states. Beyond the product, I also designed the marketing page and a variety of marketing assets for our launch

Jumpstart Profile Creation & Profile Redesign

Redesigned the profile creation flow for our candidate users. Our old flow was designed for students specifically we wanted to broaden it up as apart of our strategy to acquire industry users. Beyond just broadening it, I touched up our sign up flows and created more intuitive form selections.

As apart of the same industry initiative, I also redesigned our profiles to be more broad and inclusive. This included interviewing recruiters to understand what information they need to make a decision. Through a survey, we also discovered that our old profiles were worse than the resume to candidates because we were missing fields so this redesign encapsulated that. Therefore, with the profile redesign, we worked on what a recruiter sees, what another candidate sees and how a candidate would edit their own profile
