01

The Challenge

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

Job portals and messengers allowed HR professionals to look for prospects far beyond their city or state. Sadly, sometimes, a tech gap between recruiters and prospects becomes 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 a free resume-building tool and valuable career advice from experts that greatly increase your chances of getting a job.

The Solution

Interface

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.

The Resume Management interface can be accessed through the Account Tab or by clicking the 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 builder
  • Cover letter builder
  • Ask an expert feature
  • Expert options

Resume builder

Resume samples

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.

All samples are categorized by industry and profession. There are more than 15 industries listed, and each contains several career samples. The Client also asked us to develop an admin panel through which he could add new industries and resume samples.

Ask an Expert

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

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

As long as users ask new questions, this page will gradually grow to a profound knowledge base, positively impacting the platform’s SEO performance.

UX and design

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

You may notice that basic UI elements and the overall system behaviour mimic Google’s ecosystem. This was made on purpose to draw an 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.

The Result

Development

We developed the landing page first and then turned all our attention to the back-end of the service – Resume Management functionality and Resume Builder specifically.

It took us about 100 hours to finish all front-end tasks, which gave our client time to work on content and copyright materials.

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

Features

Altamira went the extra mile to make me happy and quickly fixed any issues. Any challenges that arose because of the time difference between the two parties were overcome by additional efforts made by Altamira to ensure customer satisfaction. They provided end-to-end design and execution of the project.
