[Virtual Training] How to Transition into UX w/o Quitting Your Job --- ***Grab your ticket on Eventbrite (spots are limited - register early to get a general ticket for FREE - use code 'iloveux'): https://bit.ly/training-transition-into-ux --- About the event: Are you looking to transition into UX without having to quit your current job? Do you want to avoid losing months or even years of your time and spending a fortune? Even though demand for user experience professionals is quite high, it can be tough to break in and you can face many pitfalls along the way. There is a large variety of tactics to build skills, experience and make yourself an attractive candidate for employers, and their effectiveness can vary tremendously and have a major impact on how successful (or not) you are with the UX career transition. While designing their UX career accelerator program to help people make this career transition in one of the most efficient ways, Beginex team interviewed and analyzed hundreds of candidates who made the transition, spoke with over 40 employers and ran more than 50 events. Then they identified the tactics that worked best for those who had the most success in getting hired, studied what employers really wanted and synthesized all of those crucial insights. The extensive research paid off, and the accelerator alumni have been hired by many top companies like Google, Coach, SiriusXM, JP Morgan, Facebook, Deloitte and many others. Join this virtual training to learn about those important UX career transition insights where we will cover the entire journey step-by-step and explore multiple examples of how exactly people made the transitions and landed their first UX jobs. Presenters: Michael Lapin is the founder and executive program director at Beginex, a part-time UX career accelerator based on real mission-driven client projects. He successfully ran multiple UX program cohorts and helped over 90 people get hired into UX and product design roles. Prior to that, Michael gained extensive experience in the technology sector in research, design, analysis, product, strategy and executive roles. He helped startups and multiple Fortune 500 companies design, build, implement and improve technology solutions and collaborated with C-level executives.
