Try not to completely ignore your previous role in you resume. Also try to leverage you previous roles experience with your new UX skill and put it across in a way where the understanding of previous roles help, identify, observe user view in your UX role where it gives a first hand experience from a user and stakeholders perspective. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Can I just get this out? I’m 3 months into my first post-grad adult job and I’ve just received an offer for a much better position that’s in-house, a significant (like >10k) salary bump, and at a better agency. I realize now that I don’t like client services but I know how much my team is just managing to tread water. I kinda feel like 💩 but this is just one of those cliche “career-defining” offers that would be so stupid to pass up…

I’m the one whose ex won’t pay for college - and I have an update. My ex texted me today that he and his wife are buying our son a car (!!) for Christmas. On the one hand, it’s one less expense for me. On the other hand, my ex won’t pay for college and he owes me at least $10K for previous medical expenses, but he can find money for a car - which is a “fun” expense that will get him brownie points with our son. Whatever - my son benefits, but talk about a “Disneyland Dad.” Ugh.
