Hey New UXer!

Ready to land & crush your first ux role with confidence?

are you tired of...

seeking advice from everyone

needing more experience

applying to hundreds of jobs

You have all the pieces — you just need to know what to do with them

What if... you stepped into your first UX role knowing you’ll make an impact, confident it’s an environment that will support you, and you walk into that first day head held high.

In an interview, you're excited to share your experiences and share why you’re an amazing contribution.

No longer ruminating on LinkedIn hot-takes about bootcamp grads or waiting on pins and needles for responses. Confident that you’ve taken care of what’s in your control and that you're making progress for yourself.

you can't "numbers game" your job search forever

Tackling everything all at once over a weekend, isn't the move

Between your resume, networking, preparing for interviews, finding junior positions (that aren't asking for 5+ years of experience), and that dreaded portfolio... your to-do list is a mile long and your calendar full.

It's no wonder you're overwhelmed and seeking out advice from multiple people.

What if you had a framework to focus on one career area at a time, where each step built on the previous AND prepared you for the next one? Where you felt even more capable, confident, and prepared as you moved further in your job search?

I feel like I've finally found my people in this UX community! That conference was everything I needed and more. Thank you for helping me find my confidence!
First time attending a conference and it happened to be UX Hustle, and I couldn't have asked for a better opportunity.
It was AH-MAZ-ING... I got everything I needed and more at the UX Hustle Summit. Thank you for a life-changing experience!

are you ready to..

[Amanda has] helped change my life so much already! ... I appreciate [Amanda] playing a huge role in my metamorphosis as a designer.

- Junior UXer
Amanda is a great coach and career specialist and the insights and experience she provides are wonderful! ... Her background was much like my own, as a pivoter, and that gives her the ability to really understand how to go into the industry change as well as map out solid strategies. I highly recommend setting up a session!

I highly recommend Amanda's coaching. Lots of amazing takeaways on our sessions!

what will shift for you?

Thank you so much for everything at UX Hustle! Definitely already planning on coming next year #GAFAM :)
The knowledge I walked away with will help me for years to come.
My biggest takeaway was don't be afraid to put your authentic self out there. I really enjoyed how human this conference was.

Who is AManda Worthington?

Hi! I'm amanda and I've been helping UXers with their careers since 2019

I pivoted my career into UX back in 2017 and successfully landed my first full-time UX job 4 days out of my bootcamp.

Now, yes, that's a bit of a brag — but the framework I used then (with updates from others' experiences, changes in the remote workforce, and my own career coaching practice) is what I share in Land Your First UX Role.

This program uniquely combines strategy, identity and mindset, and taking action so that you'll have a well-rounded job search experience.

And so I help UXers:

  • Get clear on their career goals using their unique strengths and experiences
  • Design a job search strategy that connects their past experience to UX
  • Create experiences where they're excited to move forward in their job search
  • Define their Special Sauce™ so that they're building credibility in their first UX role and in their career

frequently asked questions

When does UXPPP start?

The next cohort of UXPPP kicks off on Saturday, June 4th with a brunch call at 10:00AM EST so you can meet the other PowerPlayers!

Can I get a refund after I join UXPPP?

You may get a refund within 14 days of the group program starting. In order to receive a refund, you must show you have accessed all the materials, provided us with proof of completion of the materials provided to you up to that point, and agree to a 30-60 minute phone call to discuss why UXPPP was not a good fit for you.

I just got out of a UX bootcamp, is UXPPP still right for me?

Honestly, it depends. If you're looking for your first UX role, I'd recommend focusing on fine-tuning your resume and case studies, and practicing your whiteboard challenges and interview stories. And while we go over this in UXPPP, it's meant for designers that have more experience knowing what they do and don't want in their next job.

If you've been contracting or want this next role to be more than a "get your foot in the door" role, then UXPPP is right for you.

I have my own UX/Design business, could UXPPP help me?

Absolutely! We've had multiple business owners go through this program to get clear on their offers and showcase their work to get more clients.

I've never used Webflow, will I be behind?

Nope! Most of our Portfolio PowerPlayers haven't used Webflow before. There's a bit of a learning curve, but we've added technical office hours during the Webflow weeks so that you feel supported.
