I transitioned into content writing from a museum collections background and got my first full-time tech role as a Customer Education Content Writer for a startup last year. I was laid off from my role 2 months ago and am looking for my next role. Ideally, I would like to be a Content Designer/UX Writer for my next role, but would also love to be a Content Writer for help centers because I did that work in my last role and loved it.
It seems like I'm still running into the same issue that I dealt with when I was looking for my first tech role of not having enough experience.
I probably have 1-2 years of exact experience in these roles, but if I included my reframed experience from my museum job, I have 3-4 years of experience. Do I apply for entry-level roles, or do I shoot my shot with roles that require more years of experience?
After my experience at my first tech job, where I didn't know what to do, I figured it out, and I thrived. Here's my Medium article about what I learned from that experience. Since I have this reference, I know I can do any of these roles and if given the chance, would be great at them. But the job search is making my insecurity and imposter syndrome creep up the longer I'm out of work.
