To help people everywhere find a job and company they love.

Glassdoor is most well-known for its anonymous reviews for companies by former employees. Like its competitors, Glassdoor also has a social aspect and allows users to apply for jobs on its platform. My team capitalized on the search and filter functions to help job hunting while still maintaining its prism of anonymity.

"All job searching apps are too messy to navigate." - Interviewee #2

There couldn't be a better adjective to describe job hunting than messy. Like other users I interviewed, this person was upset that job postings are unorganized, outdated, lacking details, and get lost among countless applications. Overall "agonizing."


Weren't aware Glassdoor even had a job hunting feature

Users need an efficient way to search for jobs so they can know they're compatible because finding the right job can be emotionally uncomfortable and intimidating.

How Might We

Make it easier for users to utilize Glassdoor's features?

Creating Solutions

1. Put jobs on the home screen and make filter and sort much more visible 

+ Large enough to be seen

+ Users can pinpoint exactly what they want

Can take up space from results

2. Users can track applications and communicate with hiring managers

+ Bridge the communication gap between applicant and company

+ Users can keep track of what and when they applied

- Communication might hurt the anonymity aspect


User Flows & Wireframing

We each conducted a design studio to produce our best big picture ideas in an efficient manner

The Task

To see if users can maneuver the filter and sort functions and apply to the right job.

All users could execute the search by filtering and sorting, while verbally adding other notes.

"The system of reviewing my resume helps me feel more prepared."

Glassdoor is the platform for transparency and honesty

With more apps becoming social, Glassdoor is unique in how they provide transparent interactions while users' anonymity will keep them honest.
