  12. 12. UX Yourself 15 Do you know who you are? What are your strengths? Where do you excel? How would you find out? UX yourself! Get out in the community and ask smart questions.
  13. 13. Differentiate Yo’Self 16 Make yourself stand out. Invent work if it shows your process. Take everything you’ve learned and do something new with it. Show your work. Socialize. Create your brand.
  14. 14. Show, Don’t Tell 17
  15. 15. Be Findable 18 Make sure your portfolio is easy to find. Put it on your LinkedIn. Link it in an email. Reference it in your cover letter. Make sure you come up on a web search easily. Don’t make people work for it.
  16. 16. Research 19 Know everything there is to know about the job and the company. Contact the recruiters directly. Learn about the hiring manager. Find out what makes them human. Empathize. What makes you the BEST candidate? If you aren’t, how could you be? Tailor your expertise to the job, but be honest.
  17. 17. Play to your strengths. 20 Do you know what you’re the best at? Do you know what needs more work? Do you know what you did versus what your classmates did? Show what is great about you. Don’t lead with what isn’t your strong suit. Bad work hurts more than good work helps.
  18. 18. Interesting… and Interested. 21 Interviewing is a lot like dating. You’ve got to be on your game lead the discussion. Don’t come off as too pushy but be engaged. Be genuine and show that you know what you are talking about. No bullshit. Being interesting is not enough. You’ve got to be interested too.
  19. 19. Ask the best questions. 22 Conversations, not interviews. Interviewers are busy. Engage in dialogue. Asking questions, is as much a part of the interview as answering them. And that you want it.
  20. 20. Ask the best questions. 23 Plan ahead. Use your research expertise. It shows interest and that you’ve done the research.
  21. 21. Be Prepared to Present 24 You may need to do a design exercise. This may be “on the fly.” This may be a take home design exercise. You may need to present your design solution. AGAIN: Play to your strengths.
  22. 22. Committed, not Attached. 25 Hiring managers are busy doing their job. Recruiters are fielding lots of inquiries. Be patient. The best opportunity for you will show up. Be resilient and in communication. Send thank you notes. Do not worry.
  23. 23. You got this! But… 26 It takes more than what you’ll learn in this class. How can you take it from here? Use your downtime to enhance your skills, create something and differentiate. Dedicate time to this. Finding a job is a job. You’ll be fine… eventually.
