Hello career specialist,
I have spent the last 5-6 years working in the service industry while I have attended school for a B.S. in design. I never had time to apply for internships and basically never gained any professional experience in design or a related field. Currently, I am a bartender who is now taking the DesignLab boot camp to help build myself a decent portfolio.
What I want to know is, how can I leverage my experience in the service industry with a decent portfolio to land a junior level UX design job? I already have a B.S. in design and plan on boosting my resume with a certification from DesignLab, but is that enough? I am worried that my current work experience will be seen as a negative impact during an interview.
