Grow your UX design expertise

Advanced UX designers deepen their expertise by designing for many products, at various stages of development. They ask good questions to reveal research gaps, deliver consistent work, and are experts at collaboration. They might also take on more leadership and management responsibilities. 

Furthering your career in UX design tends to mean managing junior-level designers, into job titles like “UX Design Manager” and “Lead UX Designer.” Others prefer to advance as an individual contributor, from “Senior UX Designer” to “Staff” and then “Principal.” While it is not required, you might decide to pursue a graduate degree in human factors or engineering psychology to demonstrate your dedication to professional development.
