DESIGN THOUGHT PROCESS
Indeed.com is a top job search portal. While most of its contemporaries such as Dice, Monster and Glassdoor job portals have a user friendly, modern looking website; I was quite surprised to see a really ancient looking, eye sore website design of Indeed considering that millions trust and use this website for both job search and job posting.
PURPOSE OF RE-DESIGN
To present an aesthetic, modern, trustworthy outlook of Indeed Job portal.
GOAL OF PROJECT
The goal is to redesign user experience so that it is engaging, frictionless & efficient right from the beginning.
The following are 4 important issues I chose to address:
1. Purpose of the Homepage and Job search result page
2. The central idea around which rest of the information is presented
3. Any redundant information/functionality; in particular
4. To ‘visually guide’ users to essential zones of the webpage
Eg. ‘Upload your resume’ and ‘Employers post job’ are repeated twice unnecessarily and positioned randomly across the website. It is definitely not great to see their Logo in the middle of their website that serves no purpose and takes up too much place.
