Getting Started in UX Research
Last year a friend mentioned that his fiancé was interested in getting into UX Research, although that hadn't been her first career path. "Could I offer any advice," he asked, "since this wasn't my first career either?"
I wrote up a quick guide on what worked for me, and resources I used. Since I first started in UX Research several years ago, I've gone from a UX Researcher to a Product Manager and am currently a Senior Design Researcher at Netlify. The linked post covers how I first got started in UX Research and will hopefully be helpful for those just getting started.
It's still a Google Doc, because I'm a terrible person who keeps my writing in like 5 different places (save me from myself), but it's got links and some (hopefully) helpful things to get you started.
