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?
You’ll be able to sign up for a 1-on-1 session to get invaluable advice and insight from someone who actually leads UX teams and reviews UX résumés and portfolios for a living. This is an opportunity for those that are either currently working or looking for work to ask questions of hiring managers that they typically would never ask. Such as…
- How do I ask for a promotion?
- How long do you actually spend looking at a portfolio?
- Is [x] worth showing?
- Should I bring even more work samples to my interview?
- What if I don’t have permission to share my work?
For attendees that want feedback on their résumé/portfolio, we ask that you come prepared with printouts or have them accessible in a digital offline version (in case of WiFi issues).
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.
These 1-on-1 sessions have been scheduled during morning and afternoon breaks and a few other times.
Please keep in mind, the managers/directors have graciously volunteered their time for this event and it’s important to arrive on time. If you can no longer keep your appointment, we ask that you please let us know as soon as possible.
If you are a hiring manager/director and are interested in volunteering to give advice and review portfolios, please email Kyle Soucy.
