Design/UI/UX: Switch Job Cards vs. Job Descriptions

At Switch, a mobile job app that allows users to scan job postings quickly and easily, our pared down job descriptions -- known as “job cards” -- strip away all the needless jargon and include only the essentials. Our personalized, simplified job descriptions can not only streamline your job search, but they also provide a better idea of how to focus your own resume and optimize your job hunt. Switch currently offers 18 different “job functions” that cover everything from account management to software engineering.

Today, we’ll look at the way business development job cards differ from typical internet job descriptions. For examples, check out the slideshow to the right. Then download the app to try it out for yourself!

Design/UI/UX Job Cards

Possibly the most important aspect of a company in the digital age is its usability for its users, whether they be consumers, businesses or institutions. Designers, user interface and user experience professionals are charged with the task of making the product as addictive, engaging, and/or helpful as possible. And with competition in seemingly every aspect of the technology market, the company's bottom line is often riding on their expertise. 

Though an important field for almost all new businesses in the technological age, the requirements of a UX/UI designer vary sharply from company to company and industry to industry. While the ability to empathize with your customer comes standard, skill and experience requirements can be completely different from one job to the next. At Switch, we embrace those differences and give prospective designers a quick, convenient and succinct overview of our posted positions, allowing them to dive deeper into a job that interests them and, more importantly, scan and dispose of irrelevant job postings in seconds. How's that for a user interface?
