Two HCDE alumni, Elly Searle and Chad Driesbach, will be hosting an information session on how to create and present professional portfolios on Thursday, April 19, at 6 PM, in the Allen Auditorium. This event is open to all current and past students of HCDE (or TC).
If you would like to attend this event, please RSVP here: https://catalyst.uw.edu/webq/survey/gbruno/164282
Elly Searle is a graduate of the MS in HCDE and is a passionate user advocate who is brimming with pure win. She punches mediocrity in the mouth by designing to help users do what they want to do. She never writes error messages without first forcing the PM to show her the entire flow, and like the honey-badger, she is fearless and crazy.
Chad Driesbach is a graduate of both the undergraduate and the Master’s programs of HCDE. He took classes both in and outside of the department, including interaction design and visual design classes. Currently, he is an Axure ninja and UX guru for a boutique technology firm. One of his most notable accomplishment is creating an Axure version of Angry Birds. He has lots of thoughts on how to pick classes based on portfolio-quality projects, and how to adjust your portfolio to showcase what the hiring company wants to know about you.
