A spark of joy (and relief!) surged through you.
You thought -- this is what I’ve been
wanting all along!
But Changing Careers is Hard.
Right now, you feel stuck, you have doubts, and you need some answers.
- Is this job as good as it sounds?
- Do I have to start over with new education and experiences?
- Am I cut out for a job in tech?
- Will they laugh at me or not understand my background?
- Will I ruin my academic reputation?
- How do I match up to others going after these jobs???
- What if _____????
You know the next step is the create a portfolio of your research, but that is easier said than done!
You seem to constantly be reminded that:
- You have no “actual” or “concrete” UX experience
- You don’t see any “real world results” from the work you’ve done
- You don’t have a “tech” background
- You didn’t even do all the work by yourself
So how are you supposed to prove you can be a UX Researcher?!?
How do you know if you are speaking the right language for the industry?
How can you show that you understand the research methods needed for UX?
What is expected of me???
Scouring the Internet can actually make your fears worse.
The more you search for answers, the more contradictions you find. Everyone sounds so absolute and confident, but the advice ISN’T CLEAR!
They make it sound so simple!
Have you started to doubt yourself even more because you still feel uncertainty and a lack of clarity?
Part of the challenge is that UX Research gets lumped into UX Design. When you dive too deep into the UX blogosphere, you’ll start to believe you have to know all the latest design tools and how to code just to be considered for a junior researcher role!
BUT THAT ISN’T TRUE
There are all sorts of roles in all sorts of organizations.
The fastest way to a fulfilling new career (and a fat pay raise) is a CLEAR and AUTHENTIC STRATEGY.
I know you’ve been working on this on your own. You are smart and resourceful. But the truth is this: no one can actually see themselves clearly without a good mirror. And no one truly grows without a guide that actually cares about them and their dreams and their successes.
These truths are the reason that so many have paid thousands of dollars for bootcames or online classes, but still feel stuck.
They can’t trust the strategy because it is cookie-cutter.
Online classes and bootcamp strategies come from a recording, not a relationship.
It’s not authentic because it was handed down instead of curated FROM you.
I coach new UX Researchers looking to build their portfolios so that they can:
✨Feel like they’ve found “home” with their careers
✨Finally thrive and feel alive and motivated
✨Research skills with a sense of purpose
✨Tell their journey and receive smiles and nods
✨Confidently transform their careers
My mission is to coach people to live authentically so they can be more than they thought they could.
I work in groups so that:
✓ We can support each other
✓ Understand our unique offerings
✓ See a-ha and growth in one another
✓ We are vulnerable with each other and that creates deep friendship that become our professional network
✓ Connection, trust, referrals
