Within the realm of tech, there has been massive growth in different job types and opportunities. UX/UI Design and Product Management are two of those critical roles on the cutting edge of this wave of digital transformation. However, knowing the differences between these roles and how to break into them can seem a little daunting.

Join us as we break down the specifics that each role entails, along with how to get the skills to be successful in them. We'll help you determine which one is your ideal next career choice and discuss the range of jobs that will be available to you once you've acquired those skills.

How to join us:
Once you register, you will receive an email with the links to the live webinar from BigMarker. If you do not receive your link, please email ivy@thinkful.com.
