Q: I’m not making any money from UX yet, and I’m scared to sign up. Why should I join now?
I find many of my students are working in another career like UI design, architecture, fine art, psychology, web design and they are taking part-time courses to increase their chances of getting hired in UX. Although this course is not about learning UX research or design, it is 100% focused on positioning you get hired without struggling. Many students focus on their fear failure instead of “how can solve this problem for my potential employer.”
I got my first UX job because I learned — how to focus on ‘the outcome’ my clients wanted — (I used to be a graphic designer/web designer) but, then I had to research for three whole years trying to figure the UX career growth bit. You are at an advantage now, because this program will show you how to do that in 5 weeks.
Q: I’m already spending $3,000 or $11,000 on another UX design course
Yes! It’s hard to know what hiring managers are looking for, especially when you discover hiring manager and team leads don't always take those classes seriously. I was in your shoes once; I felt that if I hadn’t taken an MSc in Human-computer Interaction Design or had a Degree in Psychology at the time, no one would take me seriously. Wrong. I’ve been hired and added millions of $$$ to the bottom line of digital companies because I knew what to focus on. I built a portfolio that got me to interview stage and beyond, what to concentrate on is important. And I'll show you exactly how to do this too, to get hired.
Q: Why should I Join Upskill UX Career Community?
In short - your can potentially get insider knowledge you just wont get anywhere else. Other programs teach you about short-term tactics to 'update your portfolio'. I'll show you how to create a robust end-to-end superstar UX job application system. That means you'll never have to fill out an online application form again. Instead, you'll learn a UX job application process, that will completely bypass online application forms. You'll build a portfolio that hiring managers will say "WOW! Let's get them in for an interview" to. Instead of hearing nothing for weeks on end, I'll show you how to be 100% in control of the hiring process.
Q: Does this community only work for me if I’m already an UI designer or front-end web designer?
Yes it helps! Because I don't teach UX design. I show you how to position your achievements to get you hired. Here's your minimum viable checklist to see if you are ready to apply:
- You have completed 3-5 years of UX R&D or product design projects - You a dab hand at Sketch App, Omnigraffel or Illustrator to build wireframes - Built clickable prototypes to show interaction using Axure or InVision App - Know your way around HTML and understand page structure, your building tools of the internet - Had commercial design success (remember it doesn't have to be huge success, you can present predicted results when you are starting out) - Taken the FREE Google IQ certification (approx 6 hours to complete) and understand how to read the GA dashboard.
