A UX Shift: Service to Product based Industry


#1

Hello there, I have been serious and devoted in learning and exploring with core user experience subjects starting from psychology to research to interaction and to UI design.

Started my carrier as a UI designer and grew interest in learning and practicing UX. Working in a (MNC) service based Industry for almost 2.5 years I have realized that there is no growth and real scope when it comes to implementing core UX principles and methods due to various xyz factors.

At this point, I have realized that I need to shift to a product based company, which can fulfill in exploring UX subjects and get myself on the right carrier path.

I am a bit skeptic now on: when jumping to the right product company, what factors do I need to focus on when building the portfolio? Also do you suggest any online courses that I need to do in this case of mine which will ease me in getting through the desired company.

Please advice and vision me!

I am passionate and keen on learning and practicing Cognitive Psychology, UX Research, followed by Interaction Design and have been reading a lot of such books.

Theoretically the type of company you join shouldn’t affect your portfolio presentation. Provided you clearly document your process from start to finish you’ll be good. Here is a good place to start.
