I am thinking of transitioning into a UX role.
Quick background: I have an environmental design degree (urban design) and I’ve been working as a community manager (designing and managing online communities) and now do social media (designing experiences, content, assets).
I’m thinking UX/UI design will tie in all of my strengths and interests. There is an opening in my company and I’m thinking of applying. But, since I don’t have UX training in particular (only general design degree and more towards architecture), I:
- want to make sure I think/know this is a good idea before I would switch jobs in internally and
- want to make sure I am prepared for the interview and have a good base knowledge.
So, I’m thinking of taking a few days off in December to dedicate to teaching myself UX/UI and exploring.
From you: If you were to learn UX/UI in 3/4 days - what would you do? What should I do? Any advice (generally?) and/or on curriculum? Ideally I don’t want to spend a ton…
