About This Event

At this event, you'll learn more about how your company can receive and benefit from pro bono UX work, courtesy of General Assembly.

General Assembly’s User Experience Design Immersive Program is a 10-week, full-time, graduate-level educational program that helps early to mid-career professionals break into the field of UX design.

Client projects are the final project of the UX Immersive Program. Teams of 3-5 UX designers, under the guidance of 2 seasoned mentors, dedicate 3 weeks and 120+ hours of research, strategy and design to help move your product forward. There is no cost for participating, just a desire to benefit from the UX process and an interest in meeting talented UX designers that might be a perfect fit for your growing team!

Our upcoming 3-week client project cycle is coming up, and we are currently seeking companies who are interested in participating.
