This week at Crash looked a bit different than normal.
We got most of the team together in Colorado to plan the next version of the product.
Most people approach the job hunt a specific way (with resumes). Since our approach (no resume) is quite the opposite, we got inside the head of our ideal customer and brainstormed:
Then we spent an hour, on our own, brainstorming a product that would meet the needs of our ideal customer based on the answers to the above questions–a product you wouldn’t be able to say “no” to.
We had a lot of ideas (sixty made it onto the whiteboard). Then we voted. And ranked. And narrowed the ideas down into a few different routes we could take, or a few we could mix into one product with different pulls and incentives.
We also hiked Garden of the Gods in-between sessions.
By the end of our trip, before we went our separate ways, we’d started planning version two of the new product. We’ve got four different things to test–so we’ll be trying landing pages, some tests with job-seekers and hiring managers, and a few more super-secret things. 😉
Kevin crushed his job hunt process–it took about twenty days. He’s now an SDR at User Interviews.
His profile is an awesome example of showing your skill through your work. He proved he could do the job before he had it.
We’re getting started on new product testing–so we’ll be back soon with more updates. Thanks for stopping by!
A show all about creating a career outside the boring, debt-laden, conveyor belt humdrum.
