Create a product that would help employees at enterprise level companies discover career opportunities and create a plan to get them there.
This project was completed at Ignite.
Functioning in 1-week sprints, we conducted user interviews, built prototypes, and ran experiments to test various unknowns. The main questions we were looking to address in this initial discovery phase were:
We received a strong enough signal from each of these tests to move forward with the next phase of product development.
We are currently rolling out the third iteration of Wayfind. After completing a short onboarding process, users are given career recommendations based on their personality, background, and areas of interest.
Each role card is scored relative to the user's personality, education, experience, and skills.
Clicking on a role card reveals more information about the role as well as an in-depth score breakdown and possible career paths. We want to give the user enough data to determine if this role is a potential fit for them, now or in the future. Breaking the score into intrinsic and extrinsic measures gives the user a more realistic sense of their compatibility with a role regardless of readiness. We want people thinking not only about their next job, but about planning their future career path as well.
Once a user has identified a role that they like, Wayfind will walk them through the process of creating a plan to get there.
