How to leverage social media to put your work out there

Putting yourself out there opens doors for you — you'll never know who you'll meet or what opportunities you'll get by keeping an active online presence.

If you've done design projects recently, you can share snippets of your work and learnings on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

Some best practices:

  1. Include an eye-catching image to draw people into your post. If you're showing web or mobile designs, place them in a nice mockup. As an analogy, a painting looks better when framed, right?
  2. Keep it at 1-2 paragraphs, with each paragraph being 3-4 lines long. Sentences must also be short and concise.
  3. Don't just say "I did mockups for X project". Instead, share what you've learned along the way.
  4. Tag your teammates, mentors, or anyone who has helped you along the way. This increases your visibility online.
  5. End the post with a call-to-action: mention that you're looking for UX roles and how people might contact you in case they're interested in your work. You can leave your email address or let people slide into your DMs.
