The annual UK UPA Careers Event will take place on Thursday 25th June 2009 at LBI on Brick Lane from 6.30pm.
The event is for all those working in or otherwise interested in User Experience. It is an informal and relaxed event, offering the opportunity for you to network, seek talented practitioners, meet those soon to graduate or find a new role...there will be many opportunities to hear from different perspectives and get to know your peers.
The evening will feature several sponsors including LBi, Fortune Cookie, Flow, EMC Conchango, Enable Interactive and Aquent (more to be confirmed)– companies and agencies who will be displaying some of their work and will be there to tell you all about their approach and experiences and to answer any questions you have.
We’re always open to having more sponsors onboard so if you’re still interested in getting involved, send me an email.
Introducing the Reverse Job Board
We will be putting up a job board advertising people looking for a job. Simply take an A5 piece of card, state what skills and experience you can offer and what kind of job/ company you’re looking for. You don’t have to put your real name or contact details on there, just make sure to let us know your alias either before the event or after by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know if you’re interested in being contacted by companies and/or recruitment consultants and we shall do the rest.
Remember to make it readable, memorable and that you tell us your alias so we can put you in touch with the right people afterwards. If you don’t have time to prepare a card before-hand, we’ll have some spare cards available to use on the day.
There will be a short introduction and discussion panel at 7pm. Drinks and snacks will be provided to keep you going so you can focus on socialising!
