UX Jobs Handbook
Books can be a great resource for learning any skill. The field of UX design is no different. We’ve discussed this in our post on recommended UX books.
We are working on creating our own library of useful UX books that you can use to become a UX designer. This library will include free books as well as premium books at a later point.
One of these books is the UX Jobs Handbook. Looking for a job in UX can be hard. Especially when you’re just starting out. This ebook will provide you with the tools and insights you need to get started on your quest of getting a job in UX.
We currently have a rough draft of the book that is available for free to read. You can do so by clicking on the below. Please help us by providing us with some feedback. If you do, you’ll get the final product for free!
Reviews and feedback
Every designer can improve their skills by getting a review and some feedback every now and then. The Designer’s Toolbox is here to help you out in that regard. Check out our (free) review and feedback options below.
UX portfolio review
One of our main resources is the UX portfolio review. Getting a fresh view on your work can help you become more visible within your design network.
By getting your portfolio reviewed by the Designer’s Toolbox you’re setting yourself up for that one design job or project you’ve been dreaming of. Get actionable tips and tricks to help bring your portfolio to the next level.
Here’s how it works. If you submit your UX portfolio, it will be reviewed by a senior UX designer. He will provide you with feedback and actionable next steps via mail. After that, you’ll be able to do some Q&A’s if there’s anything not clear.
Reviews are $19.99 per review. Do you want more reviews? After the first review, requesting a second (or even third) one can be done at a discount.
