Welcome UX writers and writing-focused UX designers! This meetup is for anyone who writes copy for user-facing touch points and especially for writers who create the user experience side-by-side with designers.
Share ideas about process, tools, and collaboration and discover ways to communicate your craft to your organization. Meet fellow UX writers and help set the standards and expectations for this burgeoning discipline.
So, you want to be a UX writer but don't know where to start? We've got you covered.
Chelsea Larsson, Sr. Manager of UX Content Strategy at Zendesk speaks about her non-traditional path of switching from landscape architect to content strategist in three short years.
She'll share tips on how to:
- Switch into the UX writing career space
- Identify transferrable job skills
- Spruce up with your LinkedIn profile
- Get experience even if your current role isn't in the UX space
We'll also have speakers from Pinterest, Adobe, Google, Stripe, Juul, Facebook, Zendesk, and more to share their stories. After the brief talk, you'll get to sit at a table with a UX expert and talk in small groups. We'll focus on real life discussions about getting started, interviewing, and landing your dream job. (No resumes or portfolio reviews)
