User Experience: How to Thrive (Not Just Survive) in the Industry
You asked, we listened. In response to the feedback received last year, we've tailored our discussion to the needs of the aspiring UX professional. The aim of this year's session is to help individuals interested in pursuing a career in UX with tips and advice on how to break into AND succeed in the rapidly-evolving UX field. Covering topics ranging from education and training, typical career progression, and the different challenges facing UX professionals today, a group of Toronto-based UX practitioners will relate their experiences breaking into the industry and how they've progressed in their respective careers thus far. An ensuing group activity will challenge participants to find potential solutions to a real-world challenge in the UX industry
