Career path for a new UX Designer?
Any designers here who’d be able to give an advice?
A friend of mine has recently graduated General Assembly UX Design Immersive class.
Of course it wasn’t the same as few years of work but still a pretty solid experience. She worked on 5+ projects with 3 of them being a full scope improvement of the app/website.
Now she has a pretty cool portfolio (which is really great according to other designers who had a look at it), but it still doesn’t help with job search. Most of the companies reject her during the resume review stage, only recruiting agencies reply with standard “we have tons of opportunities for you” and then disappear.
Need an advice from designers - what did you do to make sure that you pass the resume review stage?
