Alumni Story: When Innate UX Skills Turn Pro
Anindita Saha (part-time User Experience Design, Hong Kong) began her path to user experience (UX) design as an accountant at a Big Four accounting firm, where she was tasked with conceptualizing software to support a new company workflow. Saha loved the project — drawing sketches, and interviewing colleagues and intended users — but didn’t realize it could be a full-time occupation.
After learning about UX as a formal field and discovering General Assembly, Saha enrolled in our part-time User Experience Design course in Hong Kong to embark on a new career path.
“What I learned in the course was not just the techniques and methods for doing the job, but also how to think like a user experience designer,” said Saha, who has since landed roles at a startup and large software development company. “Our instructor really taught us how to excel and build a career as a UX practitioner — and what it takes to become successful.”
