I just recently got the job I thought I always wanted as a Sales Specialist for a catering company. It is in the field I studied, it's been the title and position I have been striving for since I finished school but it's still not as fulfilling as I thought it would be.
I've been wanting a change and I thought it was just the change in responsibilities but I've come to terms that it's more than that. My goals have changed and so have my desires.
I've been looking into jumping into tech and learning about UX Design and general digital design this past couple of weeks.
I've always enjoyed designing different branding documents and creating customized documents for the companies I've worked for as side projects. Learning more about UX Design, I believe this is something I'd be fairly good at but also something that will always keep my interest as it's an ever-changing industry.
Now the questions come that I'm hoping some UX Designers could help me with!
- What is the average salary of this position? (happy to chat more privately but money is extremely important to me and I want to be sure it's always growing in this position)
- Education-wise, are boot camps a good form of education and something that companies do see as good education?
- What are the ugly parts of the position? Things you were you knew before entering the field?
- Is this something that can become a more freelanced career?
Any advice on switching industries and careers would be greatly appreciated! I'm fairly young so time is on my side but I'm still scared to leave something I know I'm good at.
