[Event recording] More on UX research resumes & job search, an open Q&A hosted by UXRS

Updated: Nov 29



As a follow-up to the live research resume review I did in May, I sat down for an open Q&A session with Jen Blatz and Nicole Montemurro of UX Research & Strategy.


Here's some of the topics we discussed:

  • How and when to tailor your resume for different positions

  • Including a professional summary to set context for the reader

  • Self-assessing your expertise and skillset

  • Signaling your knowledge

  • How to talk about unpaid or school projects

  • The Dunning Kruger effect (when you think you're good at something but you're actually not)

  • How to know what job level to apply to

  • Determining if a job is a good fit


If you're on the job hunt and are interested in working together to get your resume, portfolio, or other materials in tip top shape, get in touch!
