Together, we prioritized features according to the need they were addressing, it's severity and frequency. This helped the team narrow in on the product direction, MVP feature set and possible roadmap of future additions.

USER RESEARCH

Over the course of this project we ran 3 rounds of remote user testing, recruiting a minimum of 6 participants for each round. The focus of the user testing was ensuring usability of our key task flows including: initial on-boarding, searching for jobs, applying, and uploading documents. Small portions of each session were used to dive deeper into users job search behavior and identify new opportunities. 

I created a prototype that was continuously updated and grew in fidelity as we progressed. Research findings and design implications were presented back to the product team after each round.
