About the talk

Looking to build your first UX Portfolio or seeking perspective on what your current portfolio says about what kind of UXer you are? No matter where you are in the process, this talk will give you insight into how hiring managers view and evaluate UX design candidates.

  • Ever worked on a confidential project? We’ll talk about how to tell a compelling project narrative without revealing confidential information.

  • Are you a student with a lot of group project work? We’ll discuss how to showcase your work where your perspective comes through.

  • Wondering how to make sure you’re hitting the right level of opportunity with the work you feature? We’ll review sample portfolios across a range of expertise and experience.

We’ll have time for Q&A at the end of the presentation, so come prepared with questions that have come up while building your own portfolio!
