Sindhu Giri (BA 2019, BS 2019) is a UX Tech­ni­cal Expert at Think­ful (Chegg). She men­tors Think­ful stu­dents as they com­plete the UX Design boot­camp cur­ricu­lum and pro­vides advice on apply­ing for jobs and work­ing in indus­try positions. 

In a new Think­ful blog post, Giri explains some of the gaps between UX Design cur­ricu­lum in the class­room and how it’s prac­ticed in the indus­try, and gives help­ful tips on address­ing them.

After work­ing in a range of cor­po­rate and free­lance posi­tions, I’ve devel­oped a strong under­stand­ing of how UX Design deliv­er­ables are exe­cuted in the field and how UX design­ers com­mu­ni­cate with other stake­hold­ers. Through this arti­cle, I want to con­vey the nec­es­sary con­cepts an aspir­ing UX designer should know in order to suc­cess­fully tran­si­tion into industry.
