Allison Scott
Spectrum Reach, Lead UX Researcher

Hi! I'm Allison and my pronouns are she/her. I'm a user researcher working remotely from Colorado's front range suburbia.

I am leading the User Experience Track of events for BSW '21. Check out our lineup of interactive and educational events focused on enhancing product design and user research for startups. We are also excited to offer several UX career development workshops. All are welcome to attend, from newbies to seasoned professionals.

We all know UX portfolios should have at least 3 case studies, be well organized, and at least a bit pretty (even for UX Researchers). But what else? How does a portfolio actually serve you? What less tangible things can you highlight about yourself and your work to nail the interview and land the job? In this talk, veteran UXR and career coach Toni Rosati will highlight 5 rarely-seen portfolio elements that newbies really need to break into UX.
