UX Designer, Web Developer

Hours Engaged:


Skills & Stack:

Wordpress, Essential Grid


  • CareerSpring provides members with guidance to launch their careers, and uses a third-party software provider to host their “Career Platform.”. CareerSpring hoped to share additional resources, but their software provider did not support this functionality.

  • To support their aims, CareerSpring hosted a Resource Library in a Google Drive folder, but this solution was a stop-gap measure that proved difficult to use and did not match the rest of CareerSpring’s platform.


  • Prometheus paired CareerSpring with a designer and a website developer with expertise in Wordpress, which CareerSpring was already using for their marketing website. The team came up with a design and proposal for a Resource Library that would be easily maintainable by the CareerSpring team and would match the rest of CareerSpring’s platform.

  • The team built the solution on Wordpress and used Essential Grid, a low-code plugin that makes it easy to view, search, and sort through the informational resources so CareerSpring could seamlessly share resources with its members.
