We interviewed a total of five people, in the age range 22-35. The most striking insight was that no one felt that they were ‘adults’ yet, and felt the need for someone to help them in various aspects of everyday life - professional growth, emotional wellbeing, education, etc. Surprisingly, financial advice was not a priority for 4 out of 5 users interviewed.
Connects young adults to credible and empathetic mentors for guidance as they transition into adulthood. We believe providing guidance and mentorship for adults in transition will provide them with the crucial support that they need to succeed and thrive as adults.
We mapped out the process of how the mentee selects mentor from a recommended list, based on the quiz results. The mentee can then schedule meetings with the mentor either physically or virtually. They can also keep track of their mentorship progress/ accomplishments on their profile page.
As a team, we sketched out the critical parts of the app- the splash screen, sign up/log in, taking the quiz, choosing a mentor, & mentor confirmation. We pooled ideas, and collaborated on developing the Hi-Fidelity prototypes.
We designed an animated splash screen to draw in our target user group.
The process has been made as interactive , engaging, and short as possible, with the option to take a longer quiz.
Forms were designed keeping in mind reducing cognitive overload and being transparent about progress towards the user's goal.
This was a value addition feature that polled highly during user testing.
This was an extremely interesting and insightful project for us to work on, targeting the pain points and necessities of young adults and individuals in navigating adulthood, career transitions, and the need for soft skills to adult successfully.
