I'm an undergraduate looking into getting into the field of UX, and have been fortunate enough to get experience in both UX/UI Design as well as UX Research. To professionals in the industry, what are your experiences with these two tracks? Is either better or worse than the other? If so, in what ways?

I don't think one is better than the other. It really depends on your preferences. What work were you more excited about?

Like for me, I get stressed out in user interviews, so I prefer to be a fly on the wall and observe, then take those research findings into my designs. But some people really thrive in those situations!

Manager gives me hard to solve, complex problems like getting a multi stakeholder project organized. This is not my primary job but the chaos was making progress impossible. I create the solution diagrams, drew up project plan, drove discussions to arrive at tech solutions (the team was in analysis paralysis mode) to land a solution with a hard deadline. When the structures are in place, mgr takes it away from me saying this is not my day job - twice, leaving me angry & confused. Thoughts?

Is Product Management a big job market?
I’m currently a sw eng considering transitioning to PM and have a few questions. 1) As a eng, I get solicited job opportunities regularly (getting offers is a different story). Do PM’s also have ample opportunities to hop if desired? Not that I want to be a frequent hopper but it’s more about the breadth of possibilities. 2) I see ads of certifications for PM both from “bootcamp” style schools and traditional universities. Are these helpful or not really?
