Where is everyone?


#1

It’s quiet around here this week. What’s everyone up to?


#2

It’s release week here, so I’ve been up to my nose in refinement meetings and new feature designs. Also working on 4(!) UX tests at the moment.

It’s been a bit of a week.


#3

I’m also busy work too. Currently looking for a new gig, conducting surveys and interview for a product idea. And as a gap filler, I’m re-design the website with my writings, designs and playlist.

But sometimes I visit here and post some answers which I can answer quickly :slight_smile:


#4

I’m always wary of posting things like this online, should anyone from my current company see this.

That said, how is the search going?


#5

Hahaha True. I just started searching for projects. And I don’t have much idea about getting remote contracts. One way I thought of is to apply to Toptal network. And digging more options.

Do you have any thought to share regarding this?


#6

I can’t remember who posted this a while back, but here’s a list of remote-friendly companies around the globe:

'twas me!


#8

I think I should just follow up this phrase with “but it was probably @HAWK” from now on :slight_smile:


#9

Had a design release due today. Was working around the clock for that. Now got some breathing space :slight_smile:


#10

Just got home from seeing Budapest (incredible city, by the way) and Sziget, a festival in Hungary, but I am back now!

There is a total solar eclipse happening in the US on Monday so a lot of people out camping and getting ready for that. :smile:


#12

Forging a new path and navigating into an uncertain future - a normal week.


#13

Also job hunting… looking to make the leap from UI to UX, had a few promising interviews. Wish me luck!


#14

Exciting! Good luck.

It’s a couple of weeks away.


#15

Thank you Sarah, I will check it out!


#16

What part of the world are you in?


#17

Sydney, Australia : )


#18

Cool – the recruiter mentioned above is in Melbourne but I believe they have offices all over Australia so it would be worth connecting with him in the session if you can.


#19

I’m getting my UX legs back. I’ve missed everyone. My semester from hell finally ended and my brain has been recovering.


#20

Yay! Great to see you back!
