Although graduates of UX trainings and studies like computer science or interaction design step out of the gate with a lot of knowledge, there are two reasons why we might not be able to employ all of them as juniors right away: They have vastly different backgrounds (so they might not entirely fit to our projects) and they usually lack practical experience. We don't let promising applicants stand in the rain, though: Aperto offers a trainee program as a bridge from a degree to a junior position.
In his talk "Practical UX: Start to finish in 12 months – Our trainee program for UX Designers" Stefan Freimark shares insight into how Aperto finds next-generation UX designers, and how they are trained on the job. There's more to it than you might imagine... As a bonus, after the talk you're equipped with the most important things you need to build your trainee program based on Aperto's groundwork – be it for UX trainees as well or for other disciplines.
