Australian Public Service: job search interface

The job search interface is key to the APS jobs website. However, the entire website, as well as the search interface, was getting tired.

I met with stakeholders to understand who used the product, and why. Two simple personas and scenarios each were developed during the meeting.

I recorded the features of the interface and how it worked, then iterated a number of designs.

I user tested the designs and integrated feedback. This was followed by A/B testing to confirm the change and make any final tweaks.

The final design allows the user to toggle between a basic search and an advanced search. The design incorporates advanced functionality to create flexible search parameters that the user can easily adjust on the fly.
