In this position, I work with a Human Centered Design team that includes content writers, developers, and designers to assist clients with IT and business solutions. In this role, I have a variety of responsibilities, but I was hired to conduct UX research to measure usability, accessibility, and inclusivity. This has been an interesting shift, but I've had the opportunity to learn new skills and experience the best parts of the corporate world. I have a newfound work-life balance, and my colleagues have been kind, informative, and fun! I'm happy to talk with anyone about the transition from academia and opportunities in the design world!
