The 7 Deadly Sins of a UX Job Hunt Presented by M-GO

Please join us for this career presentation specifically tailored for UX professionals by M-GO.

Some of you may remember that M-GO was a sponsor of the Greg Nudelman: Agile Mobile Design Workshop in July (which was awesome). We are thrilled that M-GO's Jason Elkin, Head of Talent Acquisition + Ben Berry, Design Director + Maximina Juson Director, User Experience will partner with us to discuss UX career related strategies.

And, I would like to thank M-GO for their thoughtfulness by stepping forward and offering to help the local UX community. They put together this event for us.

    This was one of the BEST career-development sessions I have ever attended. The slide presentation was great and offered a lot of great tips on how one should prepare his/her career quest. Thank you for offering such an interesting Meetup. I can't wait until Jason Elkin's slides are posted so I can start using his tips as my career-changing check list! Thanks again.
