The ability to narrow focus on small details and independently solve problems are skills that creatives use every day, and both are deemed valuable in technical jobs. Tulane School of Professional Advancement offers several degree and certificate programs that can help creatives transition to more tech-oriented roles, including in Digital Media and Marketing Communications, Digital Design, and Information Technology. Here's a closer look at three rewarding and creative tech jobs.
User Experience Designer
A website can only be an asset to a company or organization's growth if it is easy to navigate, visually attractive, and offers something valuable to users. User experience (UX) designers work behind the scenes to ensure that all of these criteria are met, frequently combining their knowledge of visual design with technical skills like computer coding and logic. By creating an enjoyable and actionable experience for users, UX designers can encourage them to linger on a website longer, subscribe to a newsletter, or even ultimately purchase a product or service.
