Be serious about your job search, we are!

The design industry is changing rapidly but the recruitment process has not changed seriously over the past couple of years. CPHUX has gained unique insights on how companies hire and select talents after having co-created +30 UX Meet & Greets where the companies have told us what they look for when they're hiring. We have been in dialogue with a lot of companies who have been looking for new employees. All this knowledge has been accumulated and turned into the Talent Academy. The program is a compilation of what we know should be in check, when you are looking for a job.

Is the Talent Academy for me?

The Talent Academy is targeted people who have a digital design education. If you have a AD, BA, MA, online certification, is self taught etc, isn’t that important to us. You need to have an in-depth understanding of digital design because we will not cover this. We don’t do educational discrimination, so if you’ve studied Service Design, Design and Innovation, Communication Design etc, you are welcome. As long as you have a methodical approach to designing products or services for the users, then we’re in the same boat.

Who will be teaching the Talent Academy

We are honored to see Helena Levison, the founder of CPHUX and Community Lead, run the Talent Academy. She ran the first Talent Academy back in November 2018 with great success. She has facilitated 30+ UX Meet & Greets, where the companies have explained what they look for when hiring new talents.
She facilitated panels like; ‘The reality of being a UX'er in an agency’ and ‘How to get that awesome job’. She have done countless talks on what UX is, in her process of figuring out how to communicate what UX is and what type of designer you can be, she has developed the “4 Mindssets of UX” model. This model is the foundation the CPHUX Job Match is working from. She is looking forward to meeting you and assist you in getting your dream job!
