UXHel is Helsinki's hands-on UX community, which organises meetup sessions to exchange skills, best practices, to learn from one another, and to act as a platform for discussion around matters of UX Design and Research. Besides these meetups, a yearly UXCamp Nordic event will be organised, such as is already a reputable event Europe wide (e.g.: in Berlin, Copenhagen, Eindhoven, Amsterdam). The UXHel community relies on the dedication and ever-growing knowledge and inquisitiveness of its members and other volunteers to uphold a thriving and cutting-edge understanding of the field of UX. So please do join us to contribute to the growing UX talent throughout Helsinki as a whole!
Finding a new design job can often be challenging, especially for fresh graduate(s) / junior designer(s). Feel like you need to share your struggles / challenges?
UXHel is organising a new track of events to support the community folks that might be looking for new design job or just want to improve their "job hunting" skills.
In this first event we will have three talks along with a round Table Discussions - related to the biggest challenge(s) and different actions you can take in order to improve your chance of landing that elusive design job. This session are open sessions about (individual) concerns which you can bring to the table.
