Learn to effectively track, store, and retrieve the most compelling evidence of your design work.

Imagine you’re ready to apply for a UX job. Like most professionals, you probably haven’t updated your résumé or portfolio in several years. Now you’re struggling to remember the work you’ve done over the past few years. (In fact, you can barely remember what you’ve done over the past few months!)

You scramble to update your résumé and portfolio. You submit both with the job application, hoping you didn’t forget any important career accomplishments.

This approach is all too common, yet it’s a stressful and ineffective way to create a résumé and portfolio.

There’s a much better way to prepare for this situation. In this presentation, Jessica Ivins will show you how to track, store, and retrieve evidence of your design work for your next job application. It takes as little as 10 minutes per week. It can save you hours of stress and headache the next time you seek a job.

You’ll leave this presentation with tools and guidelines for preparing for your next job search well ahead of time. Whenever you’re ready for your next round of applications and interviews, you’ll have the materials you need to assemble a résumé and portfolio quickly.
