UX Career Magic – How to start it and what the hell to do once you got it

Feel like you don’t fit into a traditional drop-down menu of the recruitment industry?
Does your confidence start to crumble by just looking at job descriptions?
Do you feel like the lone UX warrior in your company?

The good news is that you are not alone.

Through a series of real-world examples, four UX Playground members will share their personal stories of getting a UX job and the strategies they adopted to deal with the new challenges.

Here from:

Jasmina Jambresic, UX Designer, News UK

Jas Seehra, Customer Experience Lead, Spabreaks.com

Natalie Man, UX Designer, Freelance

Jim Knox, UX Designer, Disguise

In addition to the stories, we will hear from the UX team at NewDay who want to grow their team – ideal for those looking for new job opportunities.

Join us for an honest assessment of the reality of pursuing a UX career. Get inspired. Get involved.

By the end of the event, you will be able to:

– Identify strategies to kickstarting your UX career
– Use insights from UX designers to manage expectations better
– Meet NewDay’s UX team to learn out about job opportunities

Agenda
6:30 pm pizza and drinks
7:00 pm UX stories
7:45 pm NewDay
8:00 pm announcing raffle winners
8:15 pm happy end

Who is this for
Both junior and senior UXer will benefit from attending this event. While the focus will be more on getting into UX, we will highlight some of the challenges UXer’s face when joining a new team, having to establish a UX workflow and managing shareholders’ expectations.

Let’s get together to collaborate, invent and create.

I look forward to another UX Playground event and hope you will be joining us.
