Who Is Supporting Students and Entry-Level Workers?
Most boot camps, trade schools, and even college and university programs lack the one-on-one personal attention that students really need. The program is mostly self-study – reading books and watching videos or webinars – and then you work on projects. Who is reviewing that project work? How much time will you get with them? Or are you left wondering if you’re getting it right?
Companies love to hire entry-level workers and those new to CX and UX work, often believing that they are bringing on someone who can carry projects alone. These workplaces rarely have other, higher-level CX workers in place to coach and help the newbie. Instead, the junior is made to feel like they must learn things themselves and “figure it out” to prove that they are hungry, scrappy, a self-starter, a go-getter, and other buzzwords that send the message, “We’re not going to actually teach you anything here.”
