CAN I LAND A UX JOB WITH NO EXPERIENCE?
How to best position yourself as a prime candidate for an entry-level job — even if you're new to UX + Product Design.
For an entry-level gig, your chances are as good as anyone else applying for the position.
And I can assure you that you’re not the only one in this situation! Twice a year a slew of people graduate from Universities and online programs, and they don’t have any experience either.
That said, not having on-the-job experience does make your life a little tougher. You’re going to have to work that much harder to convince that recruiter or hiring manager or organization that you’re worth the risk and the time they’ll invest in getting you up to speed.
So that's exactly what we're going to cover here: practical steps you can and should be taking to position yourself as an excellent candidate — experienced or not.
