I want to help 10,000 people get into UX, and it begins with YOU!
Hi, I am Tim Chan, a Product Design Lead based in Hong Kong currently working at HSBC. Previously, I worked in Accenture as a UX consultant and had spent 4 years in a startup called Vyond.
If you’ve ever asked yourself any of the questions below, you’re in the right place.
- How can I find a real UX job?
- Is my portfolio good enough?
- How do I apply what I learn from UX course into real life?
- Should I work in a Startup or a Corporate as a junior UX designer?
- Should I look for generalists or a specialist role in my first UX job?
- How can I become a Senior Designer?
There are lots of articles out there written on similar topics, but it is extremely hard to filter the noise and identify the specific action steps you need to take. To make matter worse, we hear conflicting advice all the time.
Here is an example:
How long should your portfolio be?
Some article says it should be short because hiring managers don’t have time to read it, others would say you need to make it longer because you need to show the end to end process. WHO SHOULD YOU LISTEN TO?
As a UX beginner, it is really frustrating to dig through these articles and not be able to find the answer you need. I know how you feel, because I was in the same position 8 years ago when I was trying to get into UX with no design background.
That is why I founded UXwanabe, to create high-level UX contents that offers actionable advise to help those that were in my shoes.
In this blog, I will share all the framework, mindset & strategies I have learned throughout my years in UX design.
