sigh… well, I’ve spent a few days being depressed and upset… but I’m hoping all you amazing UX’ers will give me some good feed back. I’m about 3-4 weeks from being done with the UX Academy, a full time online course and thinking about jobs. I did a Service jam in the spring, and one of the things that really pushed me into UX was the brainstorming, the problems solving and group dynamics.
Now that I’m starting to look at a “real” career, I’m worried that it might not exist? I’m not an expert at anything, I was never a graphic artist (my background is broadcast video editor), I am a “generalist”, I love working together with a group to come up with ideas. I want to do a little of everything, some research, some wireframing, some interviews, some testing, some graphic design… lots of brain storming and problem thinking… but now I’m worried that I either have to be really good at those skills, or just focus on ONE of those skills… I trust you guys! so let me know what you think (ps. I’m in LA, but can relocate anywhere in the world, so maybe LA isn’t the best place for me?)
