Comprehensive Curriculum

1
Writing compelling case studies that help you stand out

A UX case study is most likely one of the first things your potential hiring managers see. With tons of UXers in the market, you need to zig when others zag to get noticed. Most designers let themselves down by using a standard template that doesn’t help showcase their skills, play to their strengths or use the right fidelity for their online portfolio.

  • Learn critical ingredients to a successful online portfolio

  • Deconstruct design portfolios from some of the best designers today

  • Evaluate your strengths, areas of interest

  • Identify projects that best reflect your skills

  • Write 1 case study and publish it online


2
Preparing for UX portfolio presentations

The portfolio presentation is a critical first interview you'll do in the interview loop. It's time to demonstrate that you can do the work. These 1-hour meetings in a room full of strangers can induce anxiety, end up being a boring monologue and cause easy-to-avoid mistakes. Give your future hiring managers a reason to bat for you.

  • Understand what makes a good portfolio presentation

  • Gain perspective into what signals hiring managers are looking for

  • How to craft a good narrative

  • Avoid repeating the most common mistakes 90% of other designers make

  • Create your portfolio presentation for 1 project

3
Solving whiteboard exercises

It has become the industry norm to evaluate product designers. It is the most challenging of all interviews since it requires you to solve a problem while thinking aloud with limited time. This is an opportunity for you to give hiring managers an insight into your thinking, approach, and collaboration process. We’ll unpack critical ingredients into an excellent problem-solving exercise, mistakes to avoid, and easy-to-remember frameworks that you can apply.

  • Understand what hiring managers are assessing in a whiteboard exercise

  • Learn the simple framework to help you crack any problem-solving exercise

  • Practice solving live whiteboard exercises.

4
Evaluating and negotiating job offers

You're almost finished with the long grind of interviewing and its stress. There's one last hurdle to clear: evaluating and negotiating an offer.

  • Learn the do's and don'ts in negotiation

  • Create win-win scenarios

  • Practice mock salary negotiation scenarios
