UX Researcher and Designer -- I organized and implemented a series of over 20 user interview engagements with TFA regional staff across the country and compiled and analyzed the interview findings. I also led the product design through the creation of low to high fidelity wireframes, conducted usability tests, and worked side by side with the development team through the product launch.
Duration: 5 months
Teach For America is made up of 50 regions. Corps Members can be placed in any of these areas across the country. Every region has a varying amount of Corps Members and every region goes about their interview and hiring process in extremely different ways. The goal of the Hiring Fair Tool was to design a single solution that would adapt to differing regional use cases and practices yet still feel connected and unique to each end user and her specific needs.
A highly customizable schedule that can easily be adapted to regional preferences and practices while at the same time, still maintaining application consistency and functionality. My team and I focused strongly on the hiring fair set-up process because that would allow users a unique and customizable experience from the very start. The application provides a consistent experience across regions but through dynamic set-up preferences and a robust feature set, the tool feels extremely customized to individual practices.
