- Today’s Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) support job searches, resume creation and the ability to highlight employment skills on social media. However, these technological tools are often tailored to high-income, highly educated users, and white-collar professionals. It is unclear what interventions address the needs of job seekers who have limited resources, education, or who may be underserved in other ways. We gathered insights from past literature and generated ten tangible design concepts to address the needs of underserved job seekers. We then conducted a needs validation and speed dating study to understand which concepts were most viable among our population. We found that the three most preferred concepts immediately addressed job seekers’ most practical needs. and Per reviewer feedback, we aim to improve the utility of this publication to other scholars by including our research materials here. This dataset includes the interview script, storyboards that were used in the needs validation study, the demographics survey/questionnaire, and the consent form.

- We compared the response rates, cost, and the average income of participants pertaining to 6 different survey distribution methods used in an initial study about mobility-on-demand services. We used the data to identify survey and recruitment methods that are more effective in reaching hard-to-reach populations. All the raw data used for calculations and the calculations themselves can be found in the attached spreadsheets. and Initial analyses have identified in-person onsite recruitment as one of the better methods of reaching hard-to-reach populations, and is calling for continued work in improving research methods in the field of HCI.
