Mapping a career


Professional Diversity Network is a job board and social platform for job seekers of racial and social minorities. Connecting diverse job seekers with employers looking to hire them is their goal. This project was for a site that features an interactive map which contains demographic and vocational data in geographic context.

I led all design efforts and worked with a product manager to pin down exactly what kind of data we could feed into the UI. Data came from the U.S. Department of Labor and O*Net.

The primary driver behind this project was to figure out a way to make searching jobs by geographic locale more exciting. Using the wealth of data from O*Net allowed us to design a job search experience that went beyond job listings. Being able to access demographic data on minorities fit with the client's mission to open up job opportunites for diverse candidates, and accompanying that data with geographic relevant job listings put the data in a context that told more of a story.
