      How To Write A UX Designer Resume?

      Further, in this article, we've explained how to make a UI designer resume in 10 easy steps.

      Broadly, a user interface developer resume will be made in 3 stages, which are further broken down into 10 easy to follow steps.

      Master UX Designer Resume

      Start off with making a master UI developer resume which is the proprietary method of Hiration's resume making process.

      A master UX designer resume not only helps in making your current UI designer resume, but it will also be of a lot of help when you'll need to update your existing UI developer resume in the future for a new job.

      All you need to make a master user interface developer resume is to dump all the information related to your UX designer resume, from the very little details to the big ones, everything, at a single place so that you don't have to go looking for information when we proceed further in the UI developer resume making process.

      Then when we move further in the process of making a UI designer resume, all you have to do is to pick the most important information from your master UX resume and include it in the final user interface developer resume.

      The whole concept of a master UI developer resume is just to collect all the information related to your UI resume in at a single place.

      Also, if you skip this first stage of making a master UX designer resume and just skip to making your final UI designer resume, there is a high probability that you'll end up missing on including some of the most important works which you did as part of your job in your last company.

      The master UX designer resume will serve as a rough outline of your final UX resume. When you'll have this rough outline ready, all you'll have to do in your final user interface developer resume is to tweak the information a little to write it as per the correct method of writing a UX resume.

      Hiration Pro-Tip: Save a copy of your master UI designer resume after you're done dumping all the information in it as it will work as a rough outline of your UI developer resume again in the future as well.

      The last thing to do after you're done collecting all the information in a single document is to start with making your professional experience section.

      First Draft UX Designer Resume

      In the second stage of UX resume making, which is the first draft, you will complete the other sections of the UI developer resume like that of header, contact information, profile title, education, certification, and additional information sections.

      Final UX Designer Resume

      Now, by this final stage, three things are left to do. They are:

      1. Make your key skills and technical skills sections. Scan whole of your professional experience and job description to pick out your functional & technical skills for your UI resume.
      2. Compose your summary section. In order to write your summary, scan whole of your professional experience section again and pick out 3 points which you think are the strongest points of your UI developer resume. Then use these points to write an impactful summary.
      3. Highlighting and bolding. The last and final thing to do in your UX designer resume is to highlight and bold all the important words, phrase, and numbers throughout your UX resume except the summary section.

      UX Designer Job Description

      A job description for a UX designer can include the following duties and responsibilities:

      • Translating concepts into wireframes, prototypes, user flows, and mockups to provide a user-friendly experience
      • Designing user stories, mockups, wireframes and user journeys which are optimized for a variety of interfaces and devices
      • Making strategic designs for new and core features and functions
      • Conducting usability and concept testing and gathering feedback
      • Defining interaction models and evaluating their performance
      • Planning and conducting competitor analysis and user research
      • Creating storyboards and personas
      • Evaluating existing applications effectiveness
      • Tracking usability goals and drafting reports on the same
      • Developing business and technical requirements

      UX Designer Resume Sections

      Arrange your UX resume sections in the order given below:

      1. Header
      2. Personal Information
      3. Profile Title
      4. Summary
      5. Key Skills
      6. Technical Skills
      7. Professional Experience
      8. Education
      9. Certifications
      10. Additional Information

      UX Designer Resume Professional Experience Section

      Step 1

      As mentioned in stage one above, when making your UX resume, start off with making your professional experience section. In this section, you've to write all the duties which you performed as part of all your previous jobs.

      Also, make sure you highlight your achievement in each of the points and do not just end up listing your responsibilities.

      To write your professional experience section, use the format given below:

      {Designation} | {Organization} | {Location (city, country pin)} | {Dates} (month & year)

      Framing Points In Your UX Designer Resume Professional Experience Section

      The most important thing to make sure while writing your work experience related points is that you use the cause-effect method of writing UI resume points.

      The cause-effect methodology of framing UX designer resume points makes sure that both, what you did and why you did it are written in a point, thus, providing complete information.

      With the help of UX resume examples, we will show you how to write your professional experience points using the cause-effect methodology.

      UI developer resume example 1:

      • Designing and implementing UI
      • Developing new UI specifications and mockups
      • Liaising with customers, technology team and subject matter experts
      • Producing graphic user interfaces
      • Reviewing the financial aspects of product development
      • Developing engaging and intuitive experiences

      UI developer resume example 1 points are written without using the cause-effect method and so, you can see they do not provide complete information around what the person did and why he/she did so.

      UI developer resume example 2:

      • Designing and implementing end-to-end UI and leading the launch of company's new website
      • Developing new UI specifications and mockups for yearly events
      • Liaising with customers, technology team and subject matter experts to identify requirements and analyze user needs
      • Producing graphic user interfaces for tablets, desktop browsers and mobile devices
      • Reviewing the financial aspects of product development like expenditures and research as well as budgets and development appropriations
      • Developing engaging and intuitive experiences for the product

      UI developer resume example 2 points are written using the cause-effect methodology and you can see how they are providing complete information. By reading these points, one gets complete clarity about what the person did and why he/she did so.

      Bucketing And Bolding In Your UX Designer Professional Experience Section

      Bucketing and bolding are an important aspect of making the professional experience section as they help in increasing the readability of the content within this section.

      Again, let us show you this with the help of UX resume examples.

      UI developer resume example 1:

      • Designing and implementing end-to-end UI and leading the launch of company's new website
      • Developing new UI specifications and mockups for yearly events while working on Agile environment & ScrumWorks
      • Liaising with customers, technology team and subject matter experts to identify requirements and analyze user needs
      • Producing graphic user interfaces for tablets, desktop browsers and mobile devices
      • Reviewing the financial aspects of product development like expenditures and research as well as budgets and development appropriations
      • Developing engaging and intuitive experiences for the product while managing & guiding contractors to meet deadlines

      Recruiters just read a resume for 6 to 10 seconds and by reading the points above, they won't be able to read as much information as you'd like them to.

      UI developer resume example 2:

      UI Designing & Implementation

      • Designing and implementing end-to-end UI and leading the launch of company's new website
      • Developing new UI specifications and mockups for yearly events while working on Agile environment & ScrumWorks
      • Liaising with customers, technology team and subject matter experts to identify requirements and analyze user needs

      Graphic User Interface Development & Financial Reviewing

      • Producing graphic user interfaces for tablets, desktop browsers and mobile devices
      • Reviewing the financial aspects of product development like expenditures and research as well as budgets and development appropriations
      • Developing engaging and intuitive experiences for the product while managing & guiding contractors to meet deadlines

      UI developer resume example 2 points have the methods of bucketing and bolding used in them which will enable the recruiter to read much more information now in just 6-10 seconds.

      Also, just by reading the buckets 'UI Designing & Implementation' and 'Graphic User Interface Development & Financial Reviewing the recruiter will get broad level idea of the works in which you are skilled at, thus, giving him more time to read other sections of your UX resume in just 6-10 seconds.

      Take a glimpse at the sample UI developer resume professional experience section given below to get a clear idea of how a properly made professional experience section should look like.

      UX-Profesional-Experience

      Writing UX Designer Resume Headline

      Step 2

      Step 2 involves making the user interface developer resume headline, which is supposed to be the top-most thing in your UX designer resume.

      Now, the question is: Why is it important to include a headline in your UI developer resume?

      So, here's the answer, it is important to have a headline written at the top of your UX designer resume as it distinguishes your UX resume from hundreds and thousands of other UX designer resumes which have come in for the same position.

      A UX resume headline is basically made up of your name. Also, the UX designer resume headline should be the largest text in whole of your UI developer resume. It should be written between the font size of 14-16 points. Along with this, make sure the spacing in your UX researcher resume headline is correct.

      And in case you have a middle name, then use the below-given format to write your name.

      Mary E. Fanning

      Only write the first initial of your middle name and then put a full-stop after it.

      If you opt to make your UX resume on your own, then pay attention to the UI developer resume sample headline provided below.

      UX-Headline

      Personal Information Section In Your UX Designer Resume

      Step 3

      Step 3 is to make the personal information section. You've to provide only the below given 3 things as part of your personal information.

      1. Personal Mobile Number

      If you use more than one mobile number, then do not write all of them in the personal information section. Provide only one number which you use the most. By writing more than one number, you'll create unnecessary confusion and the recruiter might end up not calling you.

      Write the personal mobile number just below the UX designer resume headline on the left side.

      When writing the personal mobile number, make sure you write the International Subscriber Dialing (ISD) code of your country first and do add a plus sign (+) before it. Give a single space after the ISD code and then write the first five digits of your mobile number.

      Then add another space and then write the remaining five digits of your persona mobile number.

      1. Personal E-mail ID

      The second thing to write in the personal information section is the personal e-mail ID. Write it next to the personal mobile number, in the middle. Make sure your e-mail ID name is appropriate for writing in a UX resume. It shouldn't be something like 'sexysophia@hiration.com'. E-mail ID names like these are a strict no-no.

      Go for something that looks professional, like 'mary@hiration.com'. Also, along with the personal e-mail ID, you can also provide hyperlinks to your social media handles or any personal portfolio if you have.

      If you opt for providing hyperlinks, make sure the content of these social media handles is in sync with the one in your UI developer resume.

      1. Current Location

      The last personal information you need to provide is your current location of residence. Write it on the right side, next to the personal e-mail ID.

      If you're living in a city which is not your hometown, then write the name of the city where you're living presently.

      Also, do not write your complete residential address, it won't serve any purpose to the recruiter. Just write the city name followed by country ISO code. Just writing these two things is enough for the recruiter to know if you'll be relocating in case you join the company.

      Take a glimpse at the sample UI developer resume personal information section provided below to get more clarity on how to make your personal information section.

      UX-Personal-Information

      Customizing UX Designer Resume Profile Title

      Step 4

      Step 4 is to include a profile title in your UX designer resume.

      To let the recruiters know for which profile you've applied for, it is important to include a profile title in your UX resume.

      Adding a profile title also helps a recruiter to decide whether he/she should read your UI resume further or not.

      So, make sure you write 'UX Designer' as your profile title before sending your UX resume to any recruiter or before uploading it on any of the job portals.

      Have a glance at the UI developer resume sample profile title provided below to get more clarity on how to customize your profile title.

      UX-Title

      You can also go for Hiration's Free Resume Reviewing Service where professionals at Hiration will do a review of your UX designer resume for achievement based points over responsibility based points.

      UX Designer Resume Education Section

      Step 5

      Step 5 involves making the education section of the UX researcher resume.

      The education section contains information around your education like the name of the school/university attended, courses pursued, location of the school/university and the dates of enrollment and graduation from each course (in mm/yy - mm/yy format), etc.

      Follow the below given format to make your education section:

      {Name of the school/university} | {Location} | {Dates} (in mm/yy-mm/yy format)
      {Name of the degree} | {CGPA}

      The information given around your education needs to be 100% correct as only on the basis of this information the recruiters are able to decide if you are qualified enough for the job or not which you have applied for.

      The sample UI developer resume education section provided below will provide you much more clarity around how to compose your education section.

      UX-Education

      UX Designer Resume Certifications Section

      Step 6

      Step 6 is to make a certifications section in your UI developer resume.

      If you've done any certifications related to UX designing then include it in this section as they are very valuable for your target profile.

      When making this section, first write the name of the certification course, then secondly write the name of the certifying authority, thirdly write the location and at last write the dates for the duration for which you pursued this course (in mm/yy - mm/yy format).

      Look at the UI developer resume sample certification section provided below to get a greater understanding of how to make this section.

      UX-Certification

      UX Designer Resume Additional Information Section

      Step 7

      Step 7 is to make the additional information section.

      In the additional information section, you can provide additional information like your hobbies as well as language if you are bilingual or multilingual.

      See the sample UI developer resume additional information section provided below to get more clarity on how to make an additional information section.

      UX-Additional-Information

      Illustrating Your UX Designer Resume Key Skills

      Step 8

      Step 8 is to make the 5th section of your UI resume which is the key skills section.

      Now, we're making the key skills section at this stage so that you can scan whole of your professional experience section to get the maximum number of skills which you can write in your key skills section.

      When making your key skills section, ensure that all your skills just come in 3 lines and that they do not breach the limit of 3 lines. After you're done writing your key skills section, make sure that you bold whole of the key skills section.

      Have a quick look at the UI developer resume sample key skills section provided below to get a better idea of how to make your key skills section.

      UX-Key-Skills

      UX Designer Technical Skills Section

      Step 9

      Step 9 is to make your technical skills section.

      If you know how to use HTML, JavaScript, CSS, etc. then all these will be included in the technical skills section under respective sub-headings. After you've finished writing your technical skills section, bold all the sub-headings.

      Doing so will automatically attract the eye of the recruiters and just by having a glance at the sub-headings will give them a broad idea of what all technical skills you have.

      The sample UI developer resume technical skills section provided will give you a better understanding of how to make your technical skills section.
