Jumping into a new career can be scary, especially if the design industry is a new territory for you. Did you know that one benefit of enrolling in UX Academy is gaining access to the Career Services after you’ve finished your coursework?
At Designlab, we aim to provide continued support for all graduates as they start their job hunt, providing access to career coaches, interactive workshops, career-focused curriculum, and more!
In short: Career Services marks the end of your journey with Designlab, and the start of your career as a UX designer.
That’s why we spent time with Nicole Locklair, head of Career Services and Recruiting at Designlab, to talk more about:
- What Career Services at Designlab offers to students
- What students should expect from Career Services
- How to make the most of your experience in Career Services
- General portfolio and job application dos and don'ts
