About this workshop

Portfolio reviews continue to be one of the most efficient and popular methods that hiring managers and recruiters use to identify candidates from people who aren’t a good fit. For junior and early-career UX researchers and designers, having a good portfolio can significantly increase your chances of landing a good fit or even a dream job role.

In this workshop, you will learn how to design a personally effective portfolio, while also learning to avoid common pitfalls and mistakes. Additionally, you'll gain insights into what hiring managers are looking for when reviewing UX design portfolios.

Takeaways

In this workshop, you will learn and practice applying:

  • A user-centered, content-first approach to portfolio design
  • Lean user research to better understand your target audience
  • A user-friendly framework for designing project case studies
  • Simple changes to help reviewers identify when you're a good potential fit
  • Innovative ways to stand out from other prospects/applicants
  • Methods for testing the effectiveness and impact of your portfolio

The instructor designed this workshop primarily for UX designers with 0-4 years of experience.
