I'm looking for advice from someone with experience transitioning into UX/ Product Design career, who doesn't have a degree in a related field. If you are someone who made a transition after a bootcamp or certificate program, please let me know what were things that worked for you to transition into UX!
I've worked in ecommerce tech for the last 3 years, with a heavy focus on customer support, customer success and now commercial acceleration & revenue growth. I'd really like to take my career into product design & UX design, but I'm struggling finding a correct path. I'm currently taking a Google UX Design Certification. Would you recommend investing into a boot camp to further my knowledge or should I jump into looking for projects to complete?
What would be your best recommendation for building a portfolio? Did you work on real life projects or make them up?
It seems that most UX / Product Design jobs require experience and are more senior roles overall, how did you get your foot in the door as a junior?
Does anyone have experience transitioning into UX with their current employer? I already know our company product so well that a part of me feels like this may be a great option, but I wonder what internal moves like this look like for others out there. I work in a totally different department right now, is that weird to do?
Thanks for your guidance Elpha's! ❤️😊
