Course overview

Decode employer expectations and UX design skills to be interview and job-ready!

One of the biggest challenges a lot of aspiring UX designers face is knowing how to apply the knowledge they've learned. Knowledge is ineffective until you've learned to apply it.

By the end, you won't just be a student; you'll be UX Design interview and job-ready!"
