All most people see when they look at a website or app are colors, images, and buttons. But it’s words — not visuals — that guide you through whatever it is you’re trying to accomplish, that help you when something goes wrong, and that set the tone and personality of the experience. Who writes those words are people with the title of Content Designer, UX Writer, or Content Strategist. There are now literally thousands of job postings for these roles in the U.S. right now. The portfolio you’ll build at SVC is just the thing you’ll need to help you land one.
If you sign up for this optional program, you’ll meet six times during your program with an experienced UX pro to act as your learning and career guide. They’ll help with your coursework, get you moving on your portfolio, critique your side projects, and to work with you to develop your professional network and job-hunting plan.
