I'm sorry if the title is not clear. But basically I'm creating a website for people to apply for open jobs at our company. The requirements are that there are different sections a user must fill out such as Personal Info, Skills, Education etc. Right now, when a user logs in a panel is displayed that looks like this:
Each section is a link to information they'll need to fill out. Is there a way that I can show a user from this dashboard whether a section is 'complete' or not. For example, they've filled out the 'Personal' section but have not yet completed the 'Education' section. Would icons be best? Or different colors? Or checkmarks. I'm looking for some ideas on how best to communicate this. Perhaps I should just a do a progress bar?
Thanks for your input.
