Our fifth annual TechJobsLA Job Fair is moving to late summer. Meet and greet with companies and recruiters directly one to one. We're also offering a selection of free and paid workshops to help intermediate and advanced designers and developers extend their skills.
This event gives you the opportunity to meet several of the top names in UX talent staffing one on one. Hear first-hand where the job market is going and receive professional coaching advice targeted to your needs.
To prepare you even more, Vitamin T and Artisan Creative are sponsoring a workshop on interviewing techniques and a session offering portfolio reviews.
UCLA Extension instructor Evelyn Masso's will present "Designing for Physical Interactivity" at 1 pm (main classroom)
"Tiny Habits + UX" talk (inspired by BJ Fogg) by Raymond Soon. His first talk on the same subject at SoCalUX Camp was well received, and we're excited to see his second iteration at 1 pm (conference room).
