In light of the decision to go online due to the COVID-19 outbreak we are re-evaluating how to deliver the career center experience. This page will be updated with new content soon.
Open throughout the conference!
IAC20 will see the return of our hugely valuable Career Center. This year we’re again planning to include:
1-on-1 Career Advice Sessions
Would you like to chat privately with an actual UX hiring manager or director to get some career advice? How about to get some feedback on your portfolio or résumé? Come to the Career Center for a 1-on-1 Career Advice Session to get invaluable insight from someone who actually leads UX teams and reviews UX resumes and portfolios for a living. Don’t miss this great opportunity to get feedback in an environment without the “interviewing pressure”. Don’t have a portfolio? Not to worry. This is a perfect opportunity to chat with a UX Director/Manager about what you should include in it.
Opportunity Boards, for full-time jobs and consultants/freelancers
Independent consultants/freelancers will have a board to advertise their services. If that’s you, come prepared with an 8.5” x 11” (or smaller) printout to post!
For those who have an open position to fill or need an intern, please don’t forget to bring printouts of your open positions for the job board!
We’re also offering two Group Mentoring sessions, held outside the Career Center.
Whether you’re senior-level or just starting your UX career, you’ll have the opportunity to receive great mentorship from your colleagues. During each session, there will be 5+ mentoring tables, each with a different focus. Choose from New to UX/Career Changers (2), Consulting/freelancing, or UX Career Development (2).
One mentor will be assigned to each table, but mentees are encouraged to also share their thoughts and experiences with the group so everyone can benefit and take part in peer mentorship.
There’s only room for 3-5 mentees per table and it’s on a first-come, first-serve basis, so please show up on time to get mentored!
