When I first worked on my portfolio at General Assembly, my goal was to get a job. And that was it. My portfolio was a means to an end — showcase that I could in fact design some interfaces, a prototype, using some sort of UX process.
So you’ve been hearing about UX design for a little bit now and you’re wondering if it’s time for you to make the career switch. You’ve got all the bootcamps pinned in your browser, you’ve heard about some local (or virtual) UX Meetups but haven’t mustered up the courage to go, and you just discovered the magical (overwhelming) world of Medium.
I’m a live event junkie. There I said it. Ever since the first live event I went to in 2018, I was hooked — Women Work and Worth. Meeting new people, being inspired, and seeing women that “made it” realizing that they’re just like ME! I always left events MOTIVATED to take on the freaking world.
