I feel like a lot of people think they have to have a formal education in every new subject to have the permission to enter that field. And I feel like with most careers, people didn’t necessarily follow the tradition out, they were drawn there by passion. And I definitely see that a lot when other people come from ‘unconventional’ backgrounds. In my team we have people with degrees in biology, psychology, people that have degrees in rhetoric’s, industrial design. They seem unrelated, but they’re all connected.
Probably the best thing to do starting your career is to set up small projects; if you can work with any nonprofit or small business that you have some personal connection to. You could try your thing, get feedback, see how well that worked with the client, you can make adjustments, start up by doing lots of different things and learn. Then you can start to charge some money and try some things out. But let me emphasise – learning by doing is probably the best thing you can do.
