CLIENT NEED

Compaq wanted an information kiosk to be used by recruiters within their Human Resource lobby and at job fairs, special events and other venues. The chief objective is to educate the potential candidate about Compaq's diversity, employee benefits, community outreach and other unique aspects of the company.

SOLUTION

acire staff was contracted by Compaq Computer to create a job recruitment kiosk. All graphics and source material was conceived solely by acire's design team; Compaq provided no source material other than their logo.

The samples include the "Main menu" and "Benefits" interior page. The page transition and idle screens were developed in Macromedia Flash. Additional video sequencing was added for high impact. The kiosk also included a data-capturing element where potential applicants could upload their personal resumes.

TECHNOLOGY USED

Netkey Kiosk Software, Macromedia Flash, HTML, Thermal Printer
