USA Today Interactive - Telling and Creating Tech Career Sories
Challenge: USA Today tries to develop interactive pieces quickly, usually in a news cycle. They also try and tell a story that is correct, and try to be a current media organization. The rapid development involves "de-scoping," the process of assessing descisions necessary to seperate the "must-haves" from the "nice-to-haves." It also involves building off of existing interactives to shorten the development process.
We were tasked with building an interactive piece in the mold of a USA Today produced product. Our team of two UX designers and three web developers had four days to create a digital prototype as well as to code as much of the prototype as possible.
Solution: TechLeap, an interactive site designed to motivate and guide people interested in a shift to a career in the tech field. Centers around presenting the stories of those who have made the transition as well as a quiz intended to narrow the user's search to the position(s) most appropriate for them. Supplies the user with information helpful to them based on their quiz results.
