Resume builder

interactive resume builder with smart suggestions

idea

The idea behind the resume builder was to create something that would be easy to use even for people making resumes for the first time. As it was being designed as part of an existing product there were design limitations, but it also meant that we would be able to use the wealth of data available and create a “smarter” resume builder.

With suggestions on what skills to add based on your desired job title, what words to use in summarizing your experience, and more.

design

As this project was part of an existing product, we had to deal with lots of UX and UI limitations, what elements we could and could not use. So for the initial iteration we decided to go for a functional design, that could handle all of the additional smart functionality.

In the end it turned out great, leveraging the recommendations engine, data visualization and conforming to design.
