Decoding User Segments To Create New Market Opportunities

Indeed, a global job search platform, sought to deeply understand India's diverse light-skilled job seekers, exploring their context, backgrounds, behaviors, and attitudes when searching for jobs. Through this research, they aimed to decode their target segments, create a shared understanding and conceptualize products to serve the potential markets in India.

Approach

In our extensive qualitative research, we combined remote and in-person in-depth interviews (IDIs) to delve into the world of diverse light-skilled job seekers in India. We evaluated their tech-savviness, explored their backgrounds and job search methods, conducted prototype testing, and crafted journey maps and personas for a comprehensive understanding.

Impact

Conversations with numerous Light-Skilled Workers (LSWs), enabled us to decode their decision-making processes, identify their pain points, reveal the underserved and unaddressed needs in their job search journey. This deep dive led us to the discovery of the overarching concept of 'mera dost' as the pivotal influencer in the workers' decision-making, which then became the prism through which the client viewed its offerings. Our interactions with workers from different segments also provided evidence that the envisioned product may not align with the needs and aspirations of certain segments. This allowed our client to refocus their efforts and prioritize target audiences that would truly benefit from their offering.
