CDO Event: UX from the management’s viewpoint
Join the Michigan chapters of the Usability Professionals Association and CHI (currently in formation), in conjunction with the School of Information Career Development Office and the student CHI Chapter, for a special evening of networking and a panel session from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 22 in the Ehrlicher Room, 411 West Hall. Four industry UX managers and executives will give short position presentations on the individuals and skills that make a successful team.
You’ll learn what user experience industry leaders are saying about what it takes to succeed in the field, identify the skills that are critical to finding a job in this field, and hear what today’s employers are looking for in UX candidates, and more.
Even if you are just starting at SI (or you will be graduating this year) this is a good networking and career exploration opportunity to start to think about an internship for next summer or long-term career goals. Make sure you are developing the skills and competencies that will make you marketable in this field when you graduate.
There will be time for Q&A after the panel session, so come prepared with thoughtful questions.
Refreshments will be provided. Sign-up on iTrack is REQUIRED by midnight Wednesday, Sept 16.Explore posts in the same categories: Career Development, Events comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
