Careers in User Experience (part of Ohio Tech Day)
Learn about user experience and what a career in UX in Ohio is like.
Learn about some of the most creative jobs in tech, such as studying how people use technology, organizing content for websites, and designing screens for mobile applications.
Are there real jobs in UX? Yes! UX design is a Top 10 Hard Skill. UX Designer is the #24 Best Job in America. There are thousands of UX job openings across Ohio.
Representatives from several User Experience-related professional associations in Ohio and current User Experience practitioners will help you chart your career path in UX.
The content will be focused on high school students (as part Ohio Tech Day) but college students and people looking at a career change into UX will also find it valuable. People just getting started in a UX job and accomplished UXers can also attend to participate in the Q&A.
We will start with an introduction to 4 aspects of user experience:
Impressions people get when interacting with technology
Activities we do to define, design, and deliver good experiences
Management of customer and employee experiences
Disciplines and fields of study that make up the UX profession
Then we will open it up to audience participation, with UX practitioners available to answer questions and tell stories. We might talk about how they got started in UX or what it is like working for some of the leading companies in Ohio.
Details for the Zoom meeting will be sent to registered participants a few days before the event.
Organized by IxDA Cincinnati and UXPA Cleveland, with the support of UX Akron, IxDA Columbus, and others.
