5th Annual TechJobs LA Jobfair + Workshops

Be a part of the 5th Annual TechJobsLA Job Fair + UX Workshops on Saturday, September 17, 2016 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Joining us are a number of highly specialized recruiters who focus on UX and creative design space opportunities.

New this year! UCLA Extension will offer mini-workshops so that you can preview some of their classes and boost your skills. How cool is that, right?

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.

We’ve just added a “Wandering the Frontiers of VR as a UX Freelancer ” talk by Ed Moore. His first talk on the same subject at SoCalUX Camp was well received, and we’re excited to get a chance for more people to watch Ed in action.

(Note: Raymond Soon’s originally scheduled workshop on “Tiny Habits + UX” at 1pm will be rescheduled later as LAUX Meetup event. We apologize for any inconvenience.)

You can also check out “Designing for Physical Interactivity ” with UCLA Extension instructor, Evelyn Masso too!

We’re also putting together a Digital Entertainment panel with high-level leaders from major entertainment companies. Panelists include:

• Dan Greaney, Producer on The Simpsons/Fox

• Jinsoo An, Virtual Reality/Mobile Manager for NFL

• Thomas Rigler, Everybody Walk/Kaiser and CityWalk/KCET/PBS

• Arturo Perez, Kluge Interactive

• Michelle Chin, Senior UX Manager at Disney

• Just added: Kim Adelman, UCLA Extension Instructor for Entertainment Studies, and previously Fox Movie Channel

This panel discussion will be moderated by Luetrell Toler.
