First, some personal news. Back in July, I joined up with a group called the UX Writers Collective to create an entry-level, UX Writing course.
This group is much more talented than me. UX Writers from Google, Amazon, Intuit and many other top companies have contributed modules to the course. It covers everything a hiring manager would expect to see from a junior UX Writer, as well as a section on how to get a job.
This is the section I contributed to. We’ll cover how to create a portfolio, resources for finding a job, UX Writing tests and a whole lot more I haven’t shared on this email before.
It’s been a blast working with such a talented group of individuals. If you’re interested in learning more then you can signup to the mailing list here. Enrolments will be open in January. Signing up now gets you a 20% discount on the launch price.
There are currently 707 of you on this list. The 707 was Boeing’s first jet airliner and the less famous cousin of the Roland 808 and 909.
On with the show.
Read
I wrote about how to hire a UX Writer for the InVision blog. Dan Mall on how to create a portfolio hiring managers can’t deny. A guide to getting feedback as a UX Writer. Kristina Halvorson on writing for non-writers. Death to the insidious rise of struggle porn.
North America

Cypress HCM are recruiting a UX Writer in Los Gatos. You’ll be a TV-nut and have 10+ years of relevant writing experience. Seems like this would suit a former scriptwriter / copywriter.

Another TV gig. AMC Networks are recruiting for a Freelance UX / Product Copywriter in New York. They’re looking for someone with 3+ years of product design experience.
Capital One are looking for a UX Writer in McLean, Virginia. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. If you’re hiring for a UX Writer this is the job ad to replicate.
Eventbrite are looking for a UX Writer in San Francisco. You’ll “live the Eventbrite brand” and be “adventurous, purposeful, welcoming and original”. Sounds like a difficult yoga pose.

Cvent Senior UX Writer in Portland, Oregon. 3+ years of experience for this, which seems like too little.
