A couple weeks ago, one of our Michigan Account Managers, Joe Tebben, had the honor and pleasure of serving as both a guest panelist and sponsor at Detroit’s User Experience Monthly Meetup. The group, informally known as DUX, is made up of approximately 550 members ranging from seasoned UI/UX professionals to recent graduates and folks still working towards becoming UI/UX professionals.
This particular meetup, titled “Finding Your Dream UX Job” allowed Joe, along with 6 others, to serve as a sounding board for DUX who had several great questions for the group of panelists. Some of these questions included:
- What types of UX jobs are available?
- What skills/experience do I need to get a UX job?
- What types of software/prototyping tools should I be able to use?
- What are some important do’s and don’ts’s in a UX interview?
While these were just a few of the many questions asked at the meeting, the conversation shared some great insight on what candidates and hiring managers both look for in a UI/UX position. For more information and pictures from the event please visit the DUX Meetup Website. Missed out on the event, but still want to talk to someone about UI/UX positions? Give our Michigan office a call at (734) 667-4126 and ask for Joe!
