BigCommerce HR department found that more than 50% of candidates dropped their job applications while they proceeded to apply on our site, and they used external sites. If candidates apply through external recruiters, BigCommerce pays for it. We tried to find the best solution to improve our career page and encourage candidates to finish their application with our site.
Provided UX updates to the recruiting page that connects the best candidates to their ideal job matches and refines the BigCommerce job search onboarding process.
ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITY
We designed a new interface with the user-centered focus to improve job filtering and search for candidates. I researched other job applications and analyzed why our CTR on the career page was much lower than other pages. I needed to find the best practice to re-create the career page with minimum effort, the pain point, and then finally provide the best UX solution to the stakeholders.
UX DESIGN PROCESS
Most of the time, we have five UX processes; those are research & analysis, high-level concept, user flow, wireframe, and visual design.
CONTENT ANALYSIS & RESEARCH
Job Application Research: Analyzed our job onboarding flow and researched other job search sites, including Amazon Jobs, VMware, Doordash, Facebook Careers, Google, and Uber. I found useful findings and applied those findings to where we can improve.
FILTERING SYSTEM EXPLORE
Explored serval ideas and provided three high-level concepts with low fidelity wireframes to the stakeholders. We had several meetings and discussions and decided to go with option 3.
Provided three UX options and narrowed down to the final concept for the wireframes with the selected idea.
ONBOARDING USER FLOW
I created an entire user journey for job applicants through our internal application, including the best practice solutions for the onboarding process.
Created UX wireframes with responsive web-based and provide detailed behaviors and status.
FINAL VISUAL DESIGN
UI Design is being finalized based on the UX wireframes and handed over to the dev sprint for implementation.
Final Visual Design
The updated experience should provide better usability and accessibility for optimum results. We will monitor the data across Q4 and make further recommendations in Q1.
