Looking for a new opportunity! :)

Hi everyone!My name is Nadia Villalobos and this is the first time I post in the forum, so I would like to introduce myself to all of you :)I have a Bachelor's degree in industrial design and I’m about to finish my Master's in Design and Innovation. Before my Master’s I worked on an mHealth project named Bluo at an IT company in Mexico, this project focused on helping Mexican patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) to improve their habits and self-care, during this time I was in charge of developing the product and searching for investors, but the project was canceled. I realized that I needed more knowledge and to develop other skills in order to manage this type of startup, that’s why I decided to study for a Master’s and to focus my thesis on a digital product for patients with T2D. Last year I was part of the Startup School program where I got valuable feedback about this mHealth product and decided to take more courses focused on different design methodologies (design thinking), innovation and product management. I wrote a review article in the Journal of Scientific Innovation in Medicine, during my investigation I realized that the research and development of mHealth and eHealth products sometimes fails because of the poor user experience, that is why I’m interested in UX.I’m searching for a job opportunity and I am using this forum because I know this community was created to help women to grow professionally.Thanks for reading this long post! Here are the links to my project and my article: Bluo: article:
Hi Nadia! I love the way you put yourself out there! Although I don't know of any opportunities in your industry, would you be able to update your thread with specific companies that you're interested in working at? There may be womxn on here that know someone that knows someone that knows someone that happens to work at a place you're interested in :) I know job hunting can be so exhausting. Good luck in your search!
Hi @HannahBaldovino! :)Thanks for replying to my post!I would like to work at a company focused on mHealth or eHealth products as a Product Designer or a UX Researcher. As a designer, I love creating objects but I think that these types of products can make a huge impact on people's lives and their wellbeing.
What a great focus! I think there's so much need for this but the competition is fierce. My biggest piece of advice is to NETWORK. Don't be shy to reach out to strangers directly and start a conversation! I wouldn't necessarily pose it in a way of you are seeking a job. Just start conversations with those in the field and learn more about what they are doing and what their company is like. People are usually really receptive to give insight on those things. It's a grind but putting yourself out there is the way to go. I hope this helps!!
