Looking for a new job feels risky…and scary

Have you ever found yourself thinking thoughts like these?

  • How can I possibly find a better job in the current economy?
  • Where on earth will I find the time? I’ve already got a full-time job and family responsibilities.
  • There’s so much information out there I don’t even know where to start.
  • Every month brings even more rumors about layoffs. Do companies even value UX anymore?
  • Just the thought of updating my portfolio and resume makes me want to stay in bed.
  • I haven’t had an interview in years. How am I supposed to compete with other candidates who are “hungrier?”
  • Looking for a new job is SO overwhelming. How do I get my act together?

If you’re nervous about finding a new UX job – listen up.

You deserve better.

Just imagine…

  • Confidently searching for—and being considered for—the UX jobs you’ve always wanted.
  • Knowing exactly what to do to apply for your dream job… And precisely how much time it will take—so that you can fit a career search into your busy life.
  • Instantly making sense of the confusing mess that looking for a job can be—and quickly and efficiently knowing how to make the most of every opportunity you choose to pursue.
  • Getting paid for the knowledge and experience—and the value—you can bring to a UX job.
  • Having the clarity about what employers look for in a portfolio or on a resume—and learning how to talk about your skills and talents so that they can see you’re a great fit.
  • Finally “getting your act together” and approaching every job you decide to apply for with clarity, confidence, and peace of mind.

Yes, you do deserve better—and the good news is that “better” is just around the corner.

Because instead of worrying that your dream UX job is just that—a dream—

  • What if you had a complete system to help you land your dream UX job within the next 90 days?
  • What if there was a way to learn everything you needed to know to give you the edge…
  • AND that would help you stay focused, organized, and accountable in your job search?

The truth is, you have a lot more control than you may think.

The UX Career Catalyst is a step-by-step online course designed to help you land the UX job of your dreams in 90 days or less.

I’m Mary Shaw, a UX Consultant and Career Coach with over 25 years of digital design experience. 

Over the last seven years, I’ve helped hundreds of people get their next (or first) UX job. 

(Yes, even during the pandemic.)

And I’m proud to say my clients have an incredible success rate. 

100% of my students who did the work and followed through during their search for something new…

Are now working at their dream UX jobs at big companies—including Amazon, Google, Disney, Visa, PayPal, and more. 


Because with the tips, tricks, and strategies I taught them, they could go after much more rewarding UX opportunities for much better pay. 

Watching a client succeed…

Hearing how they traded a dead-end job for a fulfilling UX career… 

Reading emails about how they’re doing work that makes a real difference, at companies they love…

This is why I started coaching 1-on-1 clients. 

It makes me wish I could help every UX professional who’s struggling to find their dream job.

But there are only so many hours in a week, and I can only personally coach so many people.

So I took my original 6-week group coaching program—

The exact same one where I offered thousands of dollars’ worth of hard-earned wisdom—

And I distilled it down to a 6-module course you can do at your own pace, whenever and wherever you want. 

And here’s the best news of all: 

The original 6-week live program cost $1,000—and was worth five, 10, even 20 times that to the people who used it to land their dream jobs in just weeks.

But you’ll pay only a fraction of that to learn the same secrets.

Michele Mizejewski, User Experience Designer

“There are a lot of articles and courses out there that help with the nuts and bolts of a job search, but The UX Career Catalyst goes deeper with its foundation focusing on the difficult work of defining your own professional story and value. This is the part that most people skip, and Mary provides the framework to help you actually get it done. That self-definition and clarity then drives the rest of the process and fuels your confidence. Another key part of the course is developing your materials and interview approach through the lens of what’s in it for the hiring manager. Highly recommended. “
