Getting started in a UX career is a popular topic in our community. People come to the field from so many different directions and backgrounds, and everyone has a different story. It can be a challenging road to get established in a career that will support you financially and stimulate you emotionally and academically.
Heather Wydeven knows all about going outside your comfort zone to achieve things you want to achieve. In our next Ask Me Anything session, Heather will answer your questions about getting your UX career off the ground.
- Where: Our dedicated ‘Ask Heather’ Slack channel (You’ll need to request an invitation if you haven’t yet joined our Slack channel)
- When: 4pm Wednesday 1 June PDT or 9am Thursday 2 June AEST
(or find out what time that is for you)

How to Ask Your Questions
If you can’t make the live session but have questions, we’d love to collect them ahead of time and we’ll ask Heather on your behalf. You can submit your questions here. We’ll publish the responses (along with the full transcript) in the days following the session.
How does Ask Me Anything work?
These sessions run for approximately an hour and best of all, they don’t cost a cent. We run them in our dedicated public Slack channel. That means that there is no audio or video, but a full transcript will be posted up on here in the days following the session. If you’re not familiar with Slack, you’ll need to request an invite to our channel the first time only – from then on you’re part of the family and you’ll have automatic access to new sessions.
