UXology logoFor most of us, finding a new job isn't something we do on a regular basis and it can be an intimidating process. We can demystify this process for you. We are principal-level UX practitioners with years of experience interviewing candidates for UX Researcher, UX/Product Designer, and UX Manager roles (and being interviewed ourselves.)

UXology logoWe can help you prioritize what you need to do, plus give you some structure and accountability. We'll also give you very honest (but kind, and funny where warranted!) feedback on what you need to work on. We will challenge you and champion you.

Success Stories

  • Illustration of a person standing next to a story board
  • I applied to 300+ jobs and wouldn't get past the first round of interviews. After working with Lisa on my resume and case studies, I accepted a job offer within a month and turned another down!

    Lisa is amazing at what she does and gave me honest feedback while also giving me the reassurance that I wasn't crazy trying to make a transition in a pandemic!

    UX Designer

  • Super happy to share that this evening I received the written offer for [company] as an Experience Designer! And with the higher end of the salary, which I discussed with the hiring manager :-).

    I so much appreciate your support and guidance along the way, which helped me gain confidence and put my best foot forward. I am excited for this next professional chapter, and am so grateful for your role along my journey.

    UXology logo
  • I've had 24 interviews with 10 companies and I haven't been offered a position with any of them. Can you help me figure out what I'm doing wrong?
  • I could use some help working on my portfolio ... I'm finding it difficult to talk about my experience because it feels so specialized!
  • I'm planning to study UX design and was wondering if you would advise me through my choices and ultimately my job hunt.
  • I need feedback on my portfolio and my resume and preparing for an upcoming interview.
  • I am currently a Product Manager and would love to transition into a full-time UX Researcher role.
  • I shifted careers last year and finished a UX bootcamp. Since then, I've applied at over 100 jobs and gotten zero interviews. I'd love to figure out what I can do to get noticed.
  • I have an interview next Thursday. I know it's short notice, but was wondering whether you're available for a mock interview anytime before then?
  • Is it possible to get a UX coaching session for my son for his birthday?
  • I'm wondering at this point if I'm even hirable anymore. Have you ever helped somebody in this situation? Short answer: Yes!

Resume Help

Your resume often forms the first and most important ongoing impression to potential employers. Start your job search with the confidence of knowing it’s representing you in the best way possible!


Cover Letter Assistance

Contrary to popular belief, cover letters are not a thing of the past. In fact, they are one of the most overlooked tactics to ensure that you stand out from the hundreds of other applicants.


Portfolio Review

Much has been published about how to create outstanding UX portfolios. However, many of the best kept secrets can only be unlocked through an independent and iterative review of your portfolio.


Job Search Strategizing

One of the most common mistakes we see in job seekers is not thinking through their search strategically. Creating a well thought out action plan saves time and drastically increases your likelihood of success.


Linkedin Audit

LinkedIn profiles help to form and bolster ongoing impressions of your professional posture. Our independent audits will help ensure yours is projecting the desired perception in line with the rest of your online presence.


Interview Preparation

Getting through the proverbial door is one thing, but convincing a series of gatekeepers and decision makers to hire you is quite another! From knowing how UX interviews typically work, to anticipating common questions and preparing for each step along the way, permits us to help you through the most critical moments of your journey.


Mock Interview

What’s the best and most time-tested way to prepare for anything? Practice. Take advantage of this no-nonsense wisdom by setting up mock interviews with our coaches, each of whom have interviewed a multitude of UXers.


Mock Design Exercise

Interviews are all talk, but design and research exercises are opportunities to demonstrate that you can walk the walk. When employers challenge you in this manner, it’s wise to have faced these challenges before in low risk (coaching) sessions.


Compensation Negotiation

Most UXers are uncomfortable talking about compensation, which is very unfortunate, given that it’s the entire reason for work in the first place! Don’t make the common mistake of fumbling at the finish line; our coaches will help you negotiate like a champion, to obtain your true market worth.


Open Q&A

Do you have career-related UX questions that aren’t covered in the above scenarios? No problem! Just let us know what you’d like to discuss and we’ll be happy to accommodate.
