Why Did I Create This?
I’ve been in your shoes.
I’ve spent hundreds of hours searching the Internet for the answers. I’ve consumed (too) many articles, blog posts, books, videos, and podcasts that often contradicted each other and confused me even more.
I’ve interviewed at more than 50 companies and spent the last 12 years practicing UX design and learning the insides of this industry at several companies from small startups to Fortune 100 corporations, and now a FAANG company.
I’ve talked to dozens of recruiters and hiring managers, and hundreds of designers looking to get hired in UX.
This is what I wish I had had when I was starting my career in UX.
260+ posts, videos, and podcasts to help you get hired in UX.
200+ resources to learn from.
3 templates to help you get started and be more efficient.
8 examples to get inspiration from.
1 Job Application Tracker to automate your process and not lose track of your applications.
4 Bonus PDF guides with deep dives.
What are people saying?
"I’ve been really enjoying the manual you shared. Since I'm a new graduate, I still need to learn a lot about UX essentials and your materials are helping me in that aspect. It's saving me lots of time because I don't need to go through other articles and stuff that aren't actually quite useful. As you are an experienced professional, the ones you are sharing are on spot! :)
Everyday, I'm going through the manual a bit by bit and I absolutely think it's a great idea making this a living resource. Many things in UX are rapidly changing and I definitely want to keep up with that.
Thank you for the resources and supporting us starting new as a UX professional."
I can find all this information online. Why is your Manual special?
Yes, most of the information here is available online (with the exception of some templates that I created for myself). The special sauce is the curation. The Internet is endless and there is just too much information. How do you know what to look for and if it's any good? I spent 100+ hours creating this list of personal picks of excellent tips and advice, so you don't have to.
Why should I trust your choices?
I truly empathise with your pain because I went through this myself (though the noise ratio has increased). Over the course of my career in UX, I’ve interviewed at more than 50 companies and have been practicing UX and Product design for the last 12 years (startups, corporations, FAANG). This allowed me to learn how companies evaluate talent and choose one candidate over another.
Also, I’ve talked to dozens of recruiters and hiring managers, and hundreds of designers looking to get hired in UX. So, I know first-hand what's good and not-so-good advice.
"UX Career Library" does not guarantee that you will get a job. You need to put in the work and have the skills necessary for the job. There are many other factors that can influence your job search results (job market situation, location, timing, previous experiences, interviewer biases, and many more).
This resource does not guide you in detail on how to become a UX Designer. It focuses on how to navigate the job search and increase your chances of getting an offer.
