    On the menu for NYC UXPA’s May event is Cory Lebson, who will serve up the delicious secrets to success in the UX job market.

    If you’re a job seeker, learn what it takes to succeed as a UX professional. Explore the multitude of career pathways available to you. Find out how you can frame yourself solidly as a UX-er through learning, personal branding and networking.

    And if you're an employer or recruiter, learn how you can craft your job descriptions to find experienced UX-ers instead of elusive unicorns.

    Cory’s talk will cover:

    • What kinds of UX jobs are available
    • How to write/identify a good job description
    • How to successfully apply for a UX job
    • How to identify a good candidate and recognize a great UX portfolio
    • Understanding and become part of the UX community to find/advertise your talent
    • Help existing UX staff grow professionally

    The UX Careers Handbook offers an insider’s look at how to be a successful User Experience (UX) professional from comprehensive career pathway descriptions to learning, personal branding, networking skills, building of resumes and portfolios, and landing a UX job.

    Attendees will receive a special discount code to purchase The UX Careers Handbook

    Policies

    All registration activities are handled by our volunteers. Please be advised that on the day of the event, we will do our best to manage transfers and late requests, but our primary focus will be on day-of-event logistics.

    Regular registration closes at 10pm ET the day before the event -or- whenever seating capacity is reached, whichever occurs first.

    Tickets are transferable up to 11AM the day of the event by sending a request to RSVP@nycuxpa.org. Transferees will please bring the transferer's registration confirmation in printed or digital form as backup. Transfer requests received after 11AM may not be received or processed.

    If the event sells out early, a Wait List may be set up and managed by us on a discretionary basis. We will do our best to keep Wait-Listers informed about the status of available seating, but Wait Listers who haven't heard anything by noon the day of the event can assume there has been no change in status.

    Attendees are asked to use our website to sign up for our events. NYC UXPA cannot register attendees in response to email requests.
