Interview Preparation App Concept - InterviewMe

  1. 1. intervieWMe by Chris Stair GA UXDI Course Project #3 Monday, November 11, 13
  2. 2. Project Brief IntervieWMe was the Third project from my General Assembly course. Working alone over the course of two weeks I developed an idea from a research phase into a high fidelity prototype. These are the steps I took: • Research • Persona Creation • Feature Prioritization • Sketching/Iteration • First Iteration • User Testing • High Fidelity Prototyping Monday, November 11, 13
  3. 3. Final Product Description IntervieWME is an interview preparation tool designed to help recent college graduates prepare for upcoming interviews. It allows users to record, review, save and share answers to potential interview questions. The users can share their answers through multiple channels. InterviewME has an advantage over the competition because it is designed for mobile and connected to social media. 3 Monday, November 11, 13
  4. 4. Research I created a screener survey to select millenials from my class who had varying levels of job interviewing experience. From my pool of 12 qualified applicants I interviewed seven people over the course of two days. Participants in the study were asked about their interview preparation habits and their performance in past interviews. I found that participants fell into three basic categories in terms of their methods of preparing for interviews. Those three categories became personas. I designed for two of the personas because the third, by definition, did not spend time preparing for interviews. 4 Monday, November 11, 13
  5. 5. Cheryl Ko - The Overachiever “There was a time that I prepared a huge booklet for a job and it threw them off completely. They were impressed.” • Stresses before interviews, but alleviates the stress by preparing. • Rarely makes mistakes in an interview because of her intense preparation. • Highly social in her preparation, frequently solicits advice and feedback from friends and family. • Represents key demographic.

  6. 6. John Lenney - The Stresser “I get easily distracted, and then I get nervous and then I don’t do anything.” • Stresses before interviews, relieves stress by paying attention to something else. • Often makes simple mistakes in interviews because of his lack of preparation. • Generally prepares alone. • Preparation is short, generally 1-2 hours before each interview. • Often receives pressure from family to work harder at preparing. • Represents key demographic.

  7. 7. Mark Kurfess - The Winger “I don’t really go in thinking of things I like to do it off the cuff.” • Has experience interviewing. • Does not stress heavily before interviews. • Does not spend much time preparing, preparation often involves a quick background check on the company itself. • Makes mistakes in the interview, but they tend to be small and relate to a lack of preparation. • Not part of target demographic.
