Open throughout the Summit in Salon A-2!
For the 2018 IA Summit, the Career Center will include:
Portfolio/Résumé Reviews, sponsored by HS2 Solutions
Would you like to get feedback on your portfolio or resume from an actual UX hiring manager? Come to the Career Center for a 1-on-1 Portfolio/Resumé Review Session to get invaluable insight from someone who actually reviews UX resumes and portfolios for a living. Don’t miss this great opportunity to get feedback in an environment without the “interviewing pressure”.
Only a limited number of sessions are available. Sign-ups coming soon!
Free Professional Headshots, sponsored by TEKsystems
Need an updated headshot for your LinkedIn account or website? Who doesn’t? First impressions are powerful and in the online world, your headshot is what people will see first. Having a good headshot is a key requirement for successful job hunting and speaking opportunities. For the first time ever at the IA Summit, we will have a professional headshot photographer on-site in the Career Center.
Not photogenic? Not to worry, you won’t just be plopped in front of the camera. The photographer will provide coaching to get the most flattering and natural-looking smiles and facial expressions. Your headshot is important and thanks to TEKsystems we’re able to offer attendees a FREE professional headshot ($100-$200 value)!
The photographer is available first come first serve; there will be no scheduled sessions. So, please don’t forget to visit the Career Center to take advantage of this great gift!
Opportunity Boards, for full-time jobs and consultants/freelancers
New this year, independent consultants/freelancers will have a board to advertise their services. If that’s you, come prepared with an 8.5” x 11” (or smaller) printout to post!
For those who have an open position to fill or need an intern, please don’t forget to bring printouts of your open positions for the job board!
We’re also offering two Group Mentoring sessions this year, which will be held outside the Career Center:
Whether you’re senior-level or just starting your UX career, you’ll have the opportunity to receive great mentorship from your colleagues. During each session, there will be 5+ mentoring tables, each with a different focus. Choose from New to UX/Career Changers (2), Consulting/freelancing, or UX Career Development (2).
Two mentors will be assigned to each table, but mentees are encouraged to also share their thoughts and experiences with the group so everyone can benefit and take part in peer mentorship.
There’s only room for 5-8 mentees per table and it’s on a first-come, first-serve basis, so please show up on time to get mentored!
