Ditch The Overwhelm. Finish Your UX Portfolio In 4 Weeks 

The UX Portfolio Formula is a self paced online course to help you get clarity on your career, write proper case studies, create a portfolio, and prepare for your job search and interviews.

Step 1: The Clarity Method

Identify What You Do And Create Your Career Roadmap

First, you need a vision for your career and clarity about your skills and who you are as a UX professional. Because you can’t select the right projects for your portfolio until you have a career roadmap in place.

  1. Understand the users of your UX portfolio
  2. Identify your career roadmap
  3. Conduct your 3-part skills assessment
  4. Create your Career Compass Statement
  5. Select the right projects for your portfolio
  6. How to deal with NDAs
  7. How to get more UX experience

Step 2: The Case Study Cure

Write Case Studies That Tell A Story And Keep The Reader's Attention

You can’t “design” your portfolio until you know the content you are designing. And this is why you will write your projects first. This process forces you to focus on the content first, the most important part of your portfolio. Bad content will not help you get interviews.

  1. Why case studies matter
  2. The 7 part case study formula
  3. The 3 steps to write your case studies
  4. Outlining the story of each project
  5. Understanding what details matter to the reader

Step 3: The Design Strategy

Structure And Layout Your Portfolio In A Readable And Scanner Manner

The design of your portfolio matters, and even if you aren’t a visual design, you can still have a professional looking portfolio. It’s about understanding how to find the balance of text and images, layout your content, and create a scannable portfolio.

  1. The 3 sections of your UX portfolio
  2. Writing the “Work” section of your portfolio
  3. How to make non-visual projects visual
  4. How to tailor your portfolio for each role you apply to
  5. How to layout your portfolio

Step 4: Beyond the Portfolio

Your Portfolio Is What Gets You In The Door, The Interview Is What Gets You Hired

Your portfolio is only the beginning. It’s one thing to have your portfolio finished, it’s another to know how to talk about it in interviews. It’s a communication tool, not a script. Once your portfolio is finished, it’s time to consider your strategy for the job search and interviews.

  1. UX Job Search 101
  2. Understanding the interview process
  3. How to present your projects in an interview
  4. Do you need a separate portfolio for interviews

Everything in The UX Portfolio Formula was designed to help you create your portfolio and get hired faster
