AsanaUP Welcome Workshop: Preparing for a UXR Apprenticeship

Wed, May 25, 10:00 AM (PDT)

About this event

About AsanaUP Apprenticeships

AsanaUP Apprenticeships are 6-month programs that provide a pathway to entry-level roles at Asana for individuals with non-traditional backgrounds.

This apprenticeship equips individuals with industry experience in UXR with an emphasis on mentorship and feedback.

We’ve designed this workshop to give a boost to students who identify with historically underrepresented groups in tech as they launch their UXR career. We'll prepare participants a peak into the day in the life of a researcher at Asana & create an opportunity for participants to ask questions directly to our UXR team members & AsanaUP Alumni.

Our UXR team & leaders will cover:

  • An overview of the UXR team at Asana
  • Expectations for an UXR apprentice
  • A detailed overview of the AsanaUP apprenticeship program
  • What we look for in the interview process for a UXR Apprentice 
  • Q&A - we'll break off into breakout rooms for an intimate Q&A session with our UXR team!

After this event you will walk away with:

  • An understanding of the UXR team & key roles and responsibilities of a researcher at Asana
  • Insight on the interview process
  • A better understanding of the perks and benefits of the AsanaUP Apprenticeship program
  • Access to our interview guides and preparation resources

  • Identify with a historically underrepresented group in technology
  • Have attended a UX related bootcamp or are self-taught in UXR 
  • Are excited to learn, whether from your peers and mentors, or from independent research
  • Appreciate productivity and care deeply about helping teams collaborate more effectively and efficiently, including your own
