I am a Senior UX Researcher in Tech and I manage a small team of UXR at my company. I regularly mentor people who want to transition into a career in UXR from academia, design, customer support and other backgrounds. Common questions include: - How do I know UXR is the right career path for me? - Which of my skills are transferable and how do I present them in the best way? - What do companies look for in a UXR and how do I convince them that I have it? - I am to start my first job in UXR, where do I begin? - I am a UXR team of one, how do I position and scale myself in my organization? - How do I grow and develop as a researcher? - How do I work effectively with multiple stakeholders? - How do I form a vision and expand my team strategically?
