I think I succeeded.
There are great job finding/freelancing websites out there, but most do not translate well into the app space. My goal with this app was to make a hyper-curated list of candidates or companies for each user. It also had to be rapid. Nobody wants to stare at their phone all day on a hiring app.
This required utilizing some of the phone's strengths to compensate for the traditionally long form fields, namely, video. A short two minute video can say more about a person than a 3 page long essay.

After sifting through our user personas and asking them questions on what they'd like to see in an app like this. They got back to me with feature requests. One big one was the rapidness of getting through the first round of finding prospects. It had to happen even faster than I was thinking originally. So I set out to make a core design that drove that high energy process.
After establishing a rough idea of how the app will flow, I began building out quick digital wireframes to give me a more accurate look
at how the app will work practically. All the while keeping in focus the user feedback I'd already received.
Below are highlights of specific segments of the app. The specific segments are shown in order of progression. For a more in depth
grasp of the app please revisit the above prototype. I hope you enjoy viewing these segments as I did creating them.
