Design Your UX Career Plan: Clear Steps to Reach Your Goals

Landing your first UX job can be tough. This workshop is all about getting clear, actionable steps to reach your goal.
Tue August 2, 2022
6:00 PM - 8:30 PM EST

Get clear, practical steps to land a job in UX - no matter where you start.

Looking for job or “gig” in UX presents a bunch of new challenges. All of a sudden, you’re spending less time designing stuff, and more time tweaking your portfolio, over-analyzing your “About Me” page, worrying about imposter syndrome, and getting ghosted by recruiters.

It takes work and time to land the right UX role, but it doesn’t have to be frustrating, and you don’t have to do it alone.

This workshop is all about giving you concrete steps to build your skills, stay accountable, and keep up the momentum in the job hunt.

Most of all, it’s about eliminating ambiguity, and taking control of your future one step at a time. If you feel lost, confused, or stuck on what to do next, you should join us!
