Applicant Tracking Guide

Project Background

This project was completed for CareerBuilder in the spring of 2017. The purpose of this project was to create a guide that Applicant Tracking administrators can follow during implementation to test administrative functions and also continue to use as a quick reference after their Applicant Tracking system goes live.

Software Used

  • Microsoft Word
  • Snagit
  • Adobe InDesign
  • Brainshark
  • Microsoft OneDrive

Project Role

For this project I referenced technical software documentation, copy written by an instructional designer, as well as existing guides for parts 1 and 2 of the testing process to create a brand new guide for system adminstrators.

Work Process

My process to create the adminstrator guide was as follows:

  • Reworded technical content into more user friendly copy
  • Created a Word document that consolidated copy from the instructional designer with new copy I created
  • Used Snagit to capture software screenshots
  • Referenced layout and design of existing guides and used master page templates to create new guide layout in InDesign
  • Copied/pasted text from Word and imported screenshots into InDesign layout
  • Published as PDF and submitted for review
  • Revised and re-submitted according to feedback
  • Uploaded approved PDF to Brainshark and project files to Microsoft OneDrive
