Event description: 

UX skills are in increasingly high demand by employers. Getting a new job or thinking about advancing your career in your current job might seem like it is a matter of good skills, experience and solid knowledge of the field. But that only gets you part of the way there. Do you have what it takes to advance your career?

The IxDA and NYC UXPA are excited to welcome DC-based UX Consultant and President of UXPA International Cory Lebson will share his knowledge of the UX world to help you make decisions about how to move beyond your comfort zone and increase your career potential. 

The first portion of the evening will be spent discussing what you should be doing, while the second portion will start you off getting out there and networking, with a structured UX speed networking event.

This event is suitable for anyone looking to break into the UX field, as well as UX practitioners looking to improve their professional presence.
