Hello All -
I’m currently a Business Analyst (3 years) and I’m looking to make the leap into UX. Since the start of this year I’ve been slowly gathering research and learning bits and pieces of UX as I have time. At this point in my journey I’ve hit a wall as to where to go…or where to really ‘start’. I’ve done a lot of research and have a bunch of resources (book recommendations, training sites, portfolio inspiration, etc.) but was wondering if there’s a good way to just jump in? I know I’ll learn the most by doing, not just reading but where do I begin? I’m a bit overwhelmed with not knowing exactly which techniques to start with, things like that. Should I start with a fake project? I’d prefer to not join a paid course at this point because the amount of time I have available fluctuates greatly (young children!).
How did you get started on your path?
Any advice you could provide would be greatly appreciated!
