With the pandemic raging on, it’s been difficult finding a UX Design position. Rather than continue looking for a new job, I decided to take a break from applying and work on an opportunity that came up at my current company.
The company I work at has something called a Stretch Program. This program provides opportunities for employees to “stretch” into other departments and learn new skills. Employees spend 20% of their time working with the new team on real problems. I applied to the program and was granted a research project to work on with the Product Design team.
