All job seekers

What

In this webinar, Elaine will debunk the myths about landing a UX job and what to do about it.

About this event

  • Have you taken a UX Bootcamp and tried sending out hundreds of resumes for months to land a UX job but still in vain?
  • Are you wondering why there seems to be a huge demand in the UX industry, but all the jobs require 3-5 years work experience and how is an entry-level person supposed to meet that requirement??
  • Are you confused and discouraged as to why it is taking a lot longer than you think to land a 6 figure salary that the industry supposedly promises?

 

Elaine has been in the UX industry for 26 years since the first dot-com boom in the late 90’s. She is a core organizing member of IxDA Vancouver now with 1000 members on Facebook and MeetUp group and hence heard the pain points from both the UX talent demand side from hirers as well as the supply side of Career Changers and Entry Level UX designers. Elaine will unravel the truth of UX job-hunting and the market gap and will share her insights in this confusing landscape of landing a UX job.
