The design problem
How do I communicate the problem that job candidates with unusual cvs face when applying to a job?
Job seekers: I have a non-traditional background - how do I demonstrated strengths which are usually overlooked?
Potential investors: I don’t see the problem as a business opportunity.
employers/recruiters: what does this platform bring to the table that makes it worth my time?
A sketch is always a good start.
How do I convince job seekers that this will provide a solution to their problem?
How do I convince employers/recruiters that they will get a sizable pool of viable candidates which cannot be provided by traditional job application platforms for a reasonable fee?
How do I convince investors that they will make money with this idea?

Employers: I have access to potential employees which will be uniquely qualified despite non-traditional backgrounds.
