We then set out to turn this program into a product experience. We wanted to:
Ensure that our job seekers were completing the above program before they would unlock our networking tool.
Allow for interactive experiences that let job seekers identify their network, set their goals, pitch themselves, and more.
Design all of the above so the program can be tweaked on the fly by non-engineers.
So we landed on a metadata-driven learning experience called Therefore Modules. This feature needed to be versatile and expandable, and modular.
You can see the Figma of the finalized dev specs (delivered to our engineers) to build out.
Outcome & reflection
The program content was beta-tested with the existing job seekers on our platform. It helped job seekers get in the right mindset but was missing the next step, allowing them to network with tech companies directly. That's what led us to build a community of Back & Latinx job seekers that we can connect directly with DEI-focused companies.
As per the feature itself, Therefore Modules were deployed and used by all of our community members. In addition, they were modified multiple times to update our program by our ops and engineering team based on feedback, DEI language, and new components. In the end, we had around 5 to 6 total revisions and two variations (for job seekers and for employees at companies).
