The Right Stuff: What's in YOUR Portfolio?

Attend the UX portfolio mini-workshop with Lane Halley & Chris Chandler!

The growth of the Web and proliferation of mobile devices has created a huge opportunity for people who can design the look and behavior of digital products. This work spans single-person-single-device interactions through experiences that include multiple people, devices and locations. User Experience Designer (UXD), Interaction Designer (IxD), Information Architect (IA), Web Designer (WD)--whichever way you pitch your skill-set, this is truly a GREAT time be working in our field.

But--How do you showcase your talents succinctly and persuasively? What do recruiters and hiring managers look for in a great portfolio? Come and find out.

About the speakers

Lane Halley (@thinknow) and Chris Chandler (@chrischandler) are seasoned designers with experience hiring and managing other designers. Learn how to tune up your portfolio for best performance. To keep it real, examples from real portfolios will be shown.

This mini-workshop is part of the Tech Jobs LA Job Fair. Be sure to RSVP on The Los Angeles User Experience Meetup site.

    I talked with many of you on Saturday and said that if you looked for my last name in the iTunes store it would turn up recordings of my IA/UX course in the UCLA library school from 2009. Naturally it's no longer accessible that way. Here's a link:­. Please contact me directly, off-list, with questions. I next will be teaching (most likely; it's not yet confirmed) during the Winter 2013 quarter. --lynn

    Chris and Lane gave invaluable insight into the UX hiring process. In addition to the presentation and Q&A they showed before and after versions of three portfolios that represented three candidate scenarios. As a result, I left with a clear understanding of what a well-crafted UX portfolio should look like. Very grateful to the two of them for taking time on a Saturday afternoon for this meetup.
