What was your experience like with the GA Outcomes team?


The Outcomes team went above and beyond to encourage me in my job search,” says Rowley. “Anyone on that team — not just my coach — was more than willing to give me feedback or advice. Having Outcomes side-by-side with class helped get me in shape for job hunting after graduation.”

 

Rowley eventually landed a full-time UX designer role at Oracle, where she has seen a 40% pay increase and a deeper sense of work satisfaction. “It’s really wonderful to be working on something that has direct impact on users.”

Push for a Point of View


Good design is all about having a clear purpose. It’s about having a strong point of view—even if you might ruffle some feathers along the way. I chatted with people who have a strong point of view in their design — people from Google, Airbnb, Slack, Dropbox, and more. I wanted to peek inside their noggins to see what drives their decisions and informs their designs. Below are a few things I learned.

UX Design Tips From Mom


After completing my User Experience Design Immersive course at General Assembly’s Singapore campus, I tried to explain to my 90-year-old mother what I had been studying. I got schooled, instead.

Don’t Frustrate Users With Gaps in Your Product Experience


We’ve all experienced pain points when really good software doesn’t equate a really good experience. All too often, there’s a breakdown that occurs outside product screens, when a product or process hits the reality of the human experience or a user fails.
