In this episode, Matt and Luke are joined by Hawk to discuss all things UX-related, from how to break into UX, how to create a portfolio, and how to manage your UX career.
Books and online courses are fantastic resources, but there’s nothing like an in-person training workshop to ask, challenge, and reflect on your new-found knowledge, as you apply it to an activity under expert guidance.
If you’re in Melbourne, Sydney, Manila or Kuala Lumpur, you can give your career the kickstart it needs with a UX Mastery workshop.

Kim demonstrates how you can tap into this skill to ace your next job interview.
UX conferences can be remarkable places to network, learn and get inspired.
Our UX conferences resource is a global list of industry conferences that either specialise in UX or cater heavily to UX audiences (it’s a grey area, we know)!
In this episode, Matt & Luke talk to Patrick Neeman, Director of Product Design at Apptio and creator of the popular Usability Counts blog and UX Drinking Game, about how to break into UX, create a portfolio, and manage your career.
