Story Behind01

Remember the last time when you looked for a job in the newspaper? You may hardly remember that! That’s because Human Resource Management industry has taken a big step forward adopting information technologies over the last decade.

Job portals and messengers allowed HR professionals to look for prospects far beyond their city or even state. Sadly, but sometimes a tech gap between Recruiters and Prospects occurs to be too big.

Resume Lift is aimed to fix this by offering a comprehensive platform. It simplifies all aspects of modern job search. Resume Lift provides free resume building tool and valuable career advice from experts, that greatly increase chances of getting a job.

Resume Lift consists of two parts:

Website and Resume Management interface

GBKSOFT

The Website is a simple and clear landing page. It is built with one goal in mind: onboard users and forward them to the resume builder itself. For this purpose, we put a simple call to action button and three triggers that play around targeted audience pains.

GBKSOFT

Resume Management interface can be accessed through the Account Tab or by clicking Build You Resume button on the Website. From here a user can access any function of the platform.

We put a quick access bar in order to streamline user flow. It holds the most important features of the platform including paid options:

Resume Builder03

Step 1

You can choose the design of your resume and then fill in general information about yourself: Name, Career and Sub-career field.

Step 2

We used an information block as a basic structural unit. Each resume can consist of as many as ten blocks. During the second step, you can edit these blocks as well as information within those blocks by using various customization options.

Step 3

Your resume will be automatically processed by the system and saved in your account upon completion of the editing stage.

A free account allows users to store only one resume at a time and export it only in .txt format. Upgraded version allows users to export their resumes in all popular formats: Adobe PDF, MS Word, and Rich Text.

Resume Lift also allows building resumes on top of existing templates. You can choose one of many templates and customize it with your data. After choosing the specific template the system will bring you to the resume editing stage. From here the workflow goes exactly the same way as if you were editing a new document.

Ask an Expert05

This feature serves two purposes at once: monetization and search engine optimization of the platform. Ask an Expert feature allows users to communicate directly with recruitment experts and consult on their issues. Yet, this feature is available only for upgraded accounts.

On the other hand, free users can also benefit from Ask an Expert feature and get valuable information on job search matter. For this purposes, we added a filtering section, which will greatly improve user experience and discoverability of the content.

As long as users ask new questions this page will gradually grow to the profound knowledge base which will provide a positive impact on SEO performance of the platform.

UX & Design

General style07

We were informed that a large part of platform's targeted audience has previous experience in the creation of their resumes using Google Doc templates. Therefore, we advised our client to use the same Material Design that is used across all Google’s services.

You may notice that basic UI elements and the overall system behavior mimic Google’s ecosystem. This was made on purpose in order to draw additional audience and facilitate their transition to Resume Lift.

The other great thing about Material Design is that it focuses on multi-platform flexibility and dynamic UI, which comes in handy when you think about your mobile users.

Development 08

We decided to develop Landing Page first and then turn all our attention to the Back end of the service - Resume Management functionality and Resume Builder specifically.

+100 hours

It took us about 100 hours to get done all front end tasks, which gave our client some time to work on content and copyright materials. Meanwhile, we get to the development of the backend.

+4 months

We’ve managed to shorten the most intense development part roughly in half thanks to our previous experience in development of Template Builders. As a result, we finished the project in 4 months.
