Content strategist and UX writing mentor Andrew Astleford is always happy to share his journey from journalism to UX writing. He is full of good advice about personal growth, and this is also the recurring theme in this episode.
During his time at CallRail, he had the chance to combine UX writing and content design with video editing. This is a fab example of how we can grow beyond our job description and apply UX principles in new ways.
We also chatted about:
💡 The value of having – and being – a mentor
💡 How UX writers can use their skills to create video content
💡 Using analytics to improve UX
💡 What happens in UX writing interviews
💡 The benefits of attending interviews, even if we don’t get the job
