What does it take to launch a career in the UX industry? In the mystical world of UX unicorns and Design fairy tales, Designers code, Researchers design and all are well versed in every single prototyping tool. Of course, they enter the field in their 20s, own a Ph.D., and have at least 5 years of hands-on experience. In reality, though, it might take 15 years of experience in different industries, a Master's degree in your 30s, a good leap of faith, and the willingness to start over again. And this might just as well be what it takes to launch a career in the UX industry.
What we can talk about
Marie-Aude Ramos journey and what motivated me to build the User Wizard UX Career Mentoring program
Why is today’s employment world (within the UX industry) broken and what can we do about it?
Job descriptions are totally unrealistic
Expectations do not match reality
Mixed concepts of UX and UI
Lack of understanding for our industry vs. large democratization of UX
Is the generalization of UX a blessing or a curse
While it is pleasant to see many more opportunities within UX, it is wrong to assume that it is easier to enter the field - it might just as well be more difficult
What can we do, as a newcomer to UX, to get a real chance in the industry
How can we build a really strong profile?
Why is being different and asset? Why do we not believe in the UX unicorn profile at User Wizard?
