Patrick Neeman, an expert on the UX job market, is joining us for an informal chat about all things UX careers—résumés, portfolios, job interviews, unicorns, and whiskey. It’s going to be great. You should join us.

For those of you that have no idea what I’m talking about (and you’d be forgiven for falling into that category), it was a group chat with one expert, for one hour—all your questions answered.

It’s alive! After months of preparation, Sarah is champing at the bit to get our new UX Mastery forum community off and running. Regardless of whether you’re new to the field of UX, or you’ve been around the track a few times, we’d love you to join our community and become a part of the UX Mastery family.
