One thing I think is there needs to be a lot of patience with learning UI/UX to the point of actually understanding, a lot of people just want to get a job immediately after a short period of learning.
I’m really not saying it’s a wrong thing to do, and I know finances plays a huge role but when you think of the entirety of the industry and the information gap you have to fill to even get a good grasps of what you’re doing, you need patience!
Eventually it starts to hunt you when you realize you did not get some solid foundational understanding, you only focused on a tool and know nothing about what Design thinking actually entails.
Maybe the school-type education forced me to structure my learnings but I wasn’t even concerned about a job in the beginning just rigorous learning of concepts and methodologies etc still I had a lot of gap to fill while working in an agency.
