I don't understand what I just saw. a writeup would be nice. Also that background is really disorienting...
wow this is really hard to read, but such an important message using a daring approach
This is basically email + channels. I would like to see more documentation and archiving features on Slack that are smarter and better than the typical email flow. The thread feature needs some work on Slack, but personally, the word "inbox" in Twist makes me cringe. I would like to get away from email metaphors that makes me feel like I can get bogged down.
I usually just use a spreadsheet since I can do a compare/contrast of details like compensation, benefits, wfh policy, commute situation, etc. I'm not sure how useful this is since once they get a job, the use cases basically become null. However, I could see this being wildly useful for sales users since they are constantly managing contacts and going on customer visits. Something to think about!
I would definitely fix the navigation since it overlaps content when you scroll. Also, I would consider re-thinking the experience of the landing page. I see the "Hi I'm Michell" text but then the rest of the page is below the fold and it's not clear there is more content below. I agree with other comments about the carousel. I thought clicking the next item would scroll it into view, but I guess it is a select-hold-swipe? I would rethink this interaction, it doesn't feel like a natural experience and it limits you to a max amount of items. Thanks for posting, I know it's not easy to put your work out there, but I hope this helps! Best of luck :)

ALSO, there's a burrito emoji?!?
I usually do this when I'm starting a project or any new feature. This helps to clear out the noise and just focus on placement and flow of components. I even take it a step further and strip out any color indicators and just go monochrome (different hues of blue) I do like how you explain the presentation of this near the end. I would usually just show the monochrome blocks, and break down each block into more detail before showing the whole sh-bang. Is "blockframing" the official term?
