Having trouble landing your first User Experience job because you don't have enough work experience and don't have much in your portfolio? Or, is your portfolio out-of-date? Or, do you want to make sure your skills are the latest and greatest and minimize the risk of having obsolete skills?
Good news! You can address these concerns by going to hackathons. With the approval of your hackathon team, take lots of photos of the process and walk away with some deliverables. Mention your involvement in the hackathon on your LinkedIn profile and in your resume. Also, you will get experience working with a team where UX is just one part of the effort.
Remember that folks when hiring sometimes look at your Meetup activity. You may want your Meetup profile to match your LinkedIn profile. This is just a suggestion.
