Goals for the Portal

Assumptions
The conventional goals of Adoption, Engagement, Retention & Revenue don’t fit the job portal.
The Job Portal is only responsible for interfacing with candidates & capturing application and not for the rest of the hiring process.
I’ll focus largely on the Candidate end as there’s no information available about the portal’s integration with the Talent Acquisition platform.

Based on a survey from 14 of my acquaintances & colleagues, growth and education opportunity is the most popular factor while applying or accepting a new job. It’s closely followed by pay, and work-life balance.
EDIT: This table was added at 2:53AM on Nov 9, 2021. I’d missed adding it from my rough doc. Apologies for the post-submission edit.
