Making the first steps in your preferred career is always a scary endeavor. Luckily, advice is at hand, particularly if you are considering a career in UX and you can get to Brighton on the evening of the 13th September for this year’s UXbrighton career clinic.
This year our very talented design and UX department will be offering advice and guidance alongside Brighton digital luminaries such as Clearleft, The Unit, Ribot and Madgex, to name a few.
From the uxbrighton website:
“The UX Career Clinic will give advice to those looking to get into the UX industry, or move within it. Job seekers will receive unique insights from the best UX industry professionals in Brighton, who will be able to give feedback on portfolios and give career advice to help you get a foot on the UX ladder.
Approximately 20 company representatives and UX freelancers will be on-hand to give one-to-one advice to those looking to get into the industry or move within it.”
I was lucky to be invited as a mentor to the last career clinic in 2014. I spoke to an interesting and varied mix of people, all from differing backgrounds, proving that UX is a broad term and one with various interpretations and specialisms. UXBrightons Career Clinic is a great way for newcomers to the UX industry to get help in navigating the complexity of the UX industry.
We are excited to be mentoring at the next event, and look forward to the up and coming UX practitioners we will meet on the night. Hopefully we can impart a little wisdom and guidance.
This year's clinic is at the Fabrica gallery, Brighton, on the 13th September, 6.00pm.
