I’ve just been offered a part time role with Carphone Warehouse as a Sales Consultant which feels like the biggest boon to me right now, both in terms of my studies and my potential for personal progression.
As part of my interview for the role, I made it clear that this position is ideal for me in terms of on the ground user feedback across the mobile and app markets. And I stand firm in that belief. There is so much to learn from the consumer in a face to face setting that will be invaluable as my career in digital media progresses. I feel a strong pull towards UX Design roles and longterm I can see myself being fulfilled in such a position. But right now, this is a great role for on-the-ground UX research.
It also really really helps that this role is funding my studies and keeping the wolf from the door
