I’d like some advice.
I’m currently a content designer with a background in web design and trying to transition into a UX design.
I was told at my current company I’d move into a UX role after 6 months providing a senior developer was hired.
We are now in month 8 and still no developer has been hired. The promise of moving to UX will be to work in a team with one UX designer who has been in the company for over 10 years and let’s politely say, he’s a bit stale and not mentor material.
I thought getting the job title would put me in a better position for getting another UX role or at least an interview but I’m now thinking about leaving to study.
I’m lucky enough to be in a position where I can quit my current job (which I’m not happy in) and take out 3/6 months to get educated to hopefully land a UX role in a great team.
My questions are…
Has anyone been in this situation?
What courses would people recommend?
I’m currently taking User Experience (UX): The Ultimate Guide to Usability and UX by DR David Travis on udemy.
Can anyone recommend a decent place to meet a mentor?
Would anyone like to be my mentor?
Love to hear your thoughts
