    UXPA of Los Angeles is proud to bring you UX Career Fair!

    Whether you’re a seasoned UX/UI professional, a student, transitioning into UX or making a lateral change, what do recruiters and HR manager’s look for in a resume and what do they look for when picking candidates.

    • How do you know if what you’re putting on your resume will at least get you a phone call back or interview with a recruiter or HR Manager?

    • Do personal statements matter on resumes?

    • How often should I call you to let you know I’m available as a freelancer?

    • How many resumes should I have?

    We'll start the day with an introduction of the professional participants, how the day will be structured, and then what you should be doing after meeting with recruiters and HR managers.

    Hello, I'm filling out the registration form and was wondering how should I fill out the "Work Information" section. I recently graduated and don't have professional employment yet. Since it is a required field, should I use my school's contact info? Thank you!

    This event looks amazing. UXswitch would be happy to get involved as a sponsor for the next one. We're very interested in talking about the user experience of UX recruitment, which is kinda broken right now. Lemme know.
