UXSG Conference 2014


UXSG Conference 2014 is a three-day event organised by local UX community, UXSG, and takes place from 1–3 October 2014.

Themed Impact Through Design, the conference expects to attract over 400 local and foreign participants from a wide ranging field of professions and industries.

UXSG Conference 2014 is organised by a 16-member, all-volunteer planning team. While every member of the planning team is committed to making the conference come alive, the team also needs student volunteers in order to create and deliver a truly unique and memorable experience for all of its conference participants.

Student volunteers can expect to help in the following areas:
  • Pre-conference logistics preparation
  • Conference setup and registration
  • Conference ushering and ambassadorship
  • Conference teardown
  • And more!

If you would like an opportunity to contribute to the growth of the UX community in Singapore or to learn more about UX, sign up as a student volunteer now!

Who are we looking for?

If you are a local tertiary student with an enthusiastic learning attitude, we want you!

In addition to having a keen interest in UX, student volunteers are expected to:

  • Attend an orientation session
  • Be punctual for all meetings and activities
  • Commit a minimum of 20 hours prior to the conference
  • Be available for the full duration of the conference from 1–3 Oct
  • Serve stipulated roles during the conference
Do note that volunteering with UXSG Conference 2014 is not a part of your school curriculum. All time and effort contributed is solely at your own undertaking and for your personal educational development.

When can you expect to start?

Student volunteers are expected to commit their time from as early as mid-August. There are no fixed meeting dates at present but you can expect pre-event preparation to intensify in the lead up to the conference, so please be prepared to further avail yourself in the last week of September.

Why should you join?

The UXSG Conference 2014 planning team isn’t simply organising an event about UX – it also uses UX best practices and methodologies in preparing for the conference. By joining us as a student volunteer, you will get a firsthand look at what it means to be a UX practitioner.

As our student volunteers from last year’s conference can attest, we are committed to providing you with a fun and unique hands-on learning experience, along with the opportunity to interact with and glean from the planning team.

How do I apply?

Fill in the application form to register your interest as a student volunteer. You will need to briefly share why you wish to join us. Shortlisted candidates will be notified by email and interviewed prior to confirmation of service. The deadline to register is 2359hrs on Monday, 25 August 2014.

If you have any questions about joining us as a student volunteer, email us at contact@uxsg.org. We look forward to receiving your application soon!
