The world of work evolves constantly and at some point you might find yourself re-evaluating your career path. You might come to the conclusion that you’re in a career that still provides you with everything that you need, or you might find that you want to make a career change. Before you make the leap and make the change, it’s always best to think, plan and gather the wisdom of those who have already walked the path.
About our guest:
It’s always great to get the wisdom of someone who has first-hand experience in making such a significant life change. Jade Bowes joins us to share her career change journey. Anyone who knows Jade knows her as a very creative, personable and positive person.
Before becoming a UI and UX designer, Jade worked in the corporate world in the early part of her career. After feeling that this is not the right environment for her, she moved on to become a hair stylist and an entrepreneur. She managed a successful business for 5 years and created many employment opportunities for freelance stylists.
A big part of her career change was getting the skills and qualifications that she needed for her new profession. So, in 2018 Jade attained her Higher Certificate in Design and Applied Arts, and in 2021 she graduated with her Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design. When she’s not designing simple, elegant and impactful solutions for her clients, you’ll find Jade hiking and enjoying the outdoors, taking road trips, creating amazing drawings and cooking a delicious meal.
