3 ways to break into tech as a Product Designer

1. Find a mentor

2. Grow your skills

3. Build your portfolio

  1. Tell a story: What problem are you trying to solve? Who are your target users? What’s the business problem?
  2. Product thinking: Show your design process through user research and different design iterations. Remember to show design tradeoffs you made and how the final product took shape.
  3. Focus on impact: How did your design make your product better? Did you meet your metrics? Most importantly, focus on the impact YOU made for the project. Specifically call out in team projects what you worked on.
