You are totally right. I think part of it is that when you're starting out, it's hard to prioritize and parse out the important feedback. As a design lead, I find my biggest job is helping designers translate feedback.
As a designer, I wrote how I use it for UX a while back: https://medium.com/ux-power-tools/a-ux-designers-guide-to-using-dribbble-9c58727c7db8
As an agency, we only ever post if the work is live. The design may not always match the build but we always post what we agreed upon with a client. We don't get work based on our dribbble account (I actually don't want us to), but I think it's nice to also elevate our clients, while possibly sending them a little traffic. We don't intend to put a portfolio on our homepage so our agency dribbble account gives us a de facto portfolio to reference if prospects are interested. I actually think designer's put too much emphasis on their work in their portfolios so using dribbble allows us to have our website focused more on a business/strategy level.
I can't honestly disagree with you. I am unsure whether I would use text either, personally. I can say those convos are based off real scenarios we uncovered in research and informed by actual ones happening by text in early alpha testing.
While a part of it is simply the overall comfort <30-yr olds have with text, I do think overall people see text as being more personal than email while being more convenient than a phone call.
As stated before, this is for the recruiter screening; not the employer. It simply helps speed up that process and increases the quality of candidates a hiring manager has to look at.
As to your other comment, job seekers are asking for the ability to text. I feel similar to you personally, but our research shows otherwise for a good amount of people (particularly under 30).
lol, I'm not a millenial either and honestly not sure that I'd interview by text either. But kids these days...
Yeah, the app is specifically geared towards recruiters rather than hiring managers. To be clear, a recruiter can interview up to 30 candidates in the screening phase and it's pretty challenging to schedule them and have quality convos. The point is that it helps recruiters hand off higher quality candidates to the hiring manager.
As for employers, it is helpful for those that find it difficult to schedule phone calls outside their 9-5 job or sneak away. Texting lets them do the pre-screen interview on their own time.
And thanks for site compliment.
Awesome feedback, James! Super useful.
Great. Another useless, passive-aggressive criticism on DN. Thanks!
