    it's a big topic -- i think one could narrow it down and break it into several discussions. and having a smaller panel wouldn't hurt.

    Great job to the whole panel. It was refreshing to hear that humility and honesty are valued by UX hiring managers.

    Might be helpful to those in redesign of their personal website/portfolio.

    Next step: Further research and persona development ;)

    Great panel. Glad to see that there were some women who were invited to be on the panel, but it was unfortunate they couldn't make it. Hope to get a chance to hear from them and meet them in the future.
