Presentation Description:

As UX professionals, we all struggle with how to represent and describe our work to hiring managers and others. For many UX roles in hiring, graduate admissions and for digital awards, the emphasis is increasingly on showing an effective and compelling portfolio comprised of stellar case studies of individual projects. But what exactly should go into a UX case study? How do you best showcase a project? And what if you've created something really great and want to share it with the world? 

In this event, Beverly May, founder and organizer of the UX Awards, will join a panel of UX leaders to discuss how to create winning UX case studies as part of a standout UX portfolio. These case studies can be used to get a better job, get into a fabulous grad program or win international Awards and gain broad acclaim for your work. 

The event will be structured in two parts. The first half of the event will discuss the UX Awards- the premier international awards for exceptional digital experience, which is now in its fourth year. The UX Awards submission window starts April 25, so we'll focus on what the awards are, the submission process and what makes an exceptional submission case study. Great case study submissions for the Awards are also great case studies for your or your company's portfolio! 
The second half of the event will discuss broader needs around UX portfolios, hiring and presentations. panelists will join the conversation to discuss UX hiring, portfolios and case studies that are effective and that cover the full range of UX process- research, strategy, defining the audience, testing, mockups, prototypes, design and implementation. We'll focus on how to create great UX case studies for various scenarios and types of projects that are sure to showcase your work in the best light and get noticed.
