They wouldn't interview if they didn't think you could do it. It's all about fit, so make sure you get along well with everyone.

Sell your unfamiliarity as an asset. Because they are taking a chance you are extra motivated to work hard. Also, we tend to become most invested when we are learning and navigating something new (read about and mention the "s curve of learning" to back this up).

Background: law is my second career, mostly do probate litigation and child welfare work/appeals for the State. First career - clinical social worker. This would be a huge shift and definitely outside my arena but I love the work I do for the Corp we represent and want to do more substantive business law - this job would be a dream. Clearly, I am not the best fit bc of my lack of direct experience but I know I could do the job and do it well.

Bridge between Customer Support and Product Design?

Hiya! I am in the final round of interviews at an EdTech platform for a role that is the bridge between the Customer Support and UX/Product Design teams. I act as that bridge in my current role but on a more informal basis because it is a smaller company.

Would anyone be willing to share their perspective (positive or negative) on the Product/UX end of this relationship? I want to make sure to ask the right questions.
Thank you!

Hello UX people, I need your thoughts here. A friend of mine has been in the market for a UX job for over a year. He's very green with only internship experience.

Recently, he was interviewing with a company who asked him to do a take home UX case study on their product. He sent it over a couple weeks ago and they ghosted him.

It feels incredibly unethical, but I'm wondering if this is standard practice at companies?
Thanks!

I am desperate for a career change. Would love to work in something that is more analytical than fluffy slides and involves hard skills than the BS generalist skills I have. Is it worth pursuing data analytics/data science education? I am in my late 30s and at director level. Willing to invest in a masters (after I do some online courses to make sure I have the aptitude). Sorry if it’s a dumb question, just need something new and this attracts me from the outside, not sure if grass is greener.

How argumentative are you with your partners? I was assigned to draft a motion. I studied the issue for hours. Felt sure about my findings. I drafted it and sent it for review. Partner came back with a different argument, which I know to be wrong based on the case law. Ultimately, we went back on forth on drafts over this issue but I couldn’t give her what she wanted because I can’t physically argue something I think is flat out wrong. She ended up doing it herself.
