Hi, I’ve been lurking here for a while. Just a little bit about myself, I’ve been a front-end developer in NYC for the past ten years and looking to change careers to UX. I’ve taken a UX course as a refresher since I studied digital media college and was exposed to a lot of UX concepts. I have created a portfolio site with sample projects and past work.
I recently started my job search but somewhat discouraged to find that most UX positions are mid-senior level requiring 5-10 years of expereince. I have applied to some anyway just for practice. Other than that it’s not looking good at the moment. What are some good job search strategies for someone like me looking to get their foot in the door?
