How To Land Your Dream UX or Product Job In Weeks, Not Months
The Career Strategy Lab
Are you a UX or Product Professional who wants to land your dream role in weeks instead of months, without the overwhelm?
Introducing The Career Strategy Lab, a high-touch UX job search accelerator where I show you the exact methods I’ve used to help hundreds of people like you double their salaries and get hired at top companies including Home Depot, Intuit, American Express, Microsoft, Google, H&M, and Amazon … in half the time.
Featured In & Worked With
Let me guess – you thought by now you’d be at your new job in UX or Product Development.
But in reality, the entire process of landing your next role has been a lot harder than you imagined.
Does this sound familiar? Right now you’re …
But if you’re honest, you wish you could …
You’ve been piecing together articles, tips, and advice, but it only leads to more confusion & wasted time.
But this DIY approach hasn’t worked. You’ve hit a dead end on the journey to get your next role, here’s why …
So how do land your dream UX or Product job in weeks instead of months?
When you have a solid career strategy to follow, 6 crucial things happen:
When you see a role, you apply within hours instead of spending days getting your materials together.
You understand how to navigate the job search, position yourself, and build authentic career relationships.
You have clarity about your career path, what you want to do, and how you’re going to get there.
You know how to confidently communicate the impact, value, and depth of your skills and experience.
You stand out once you are hired because your communication skills are off the charts, making you a high-value team member.
You’re more fulfilled, work at a company that aligns with your values and you’re on a team where you feel supported.
Don’t just take it from me … here are some real-life results our clients have achieved after working with us.
Secured a 100% salary increase
“I accepted a position as a Senior UX Designer for a Fortune 500 financial company in Texas.
My salary is a 100% increase. So basically I make double what I was making at my last job.”
Got hired during a pandemic
“I got hired during a pandemic! After not getting many interviews, I enrolled and got hired as a Digital experience Designer. “
Pivoted into User Research
“I accepted a role but then got a better offer from Google so I accepted that one! Two years ago if you would’ve told me I’d be here today I wouldn’t have believed it!“
Started to get more interviews
“Previously I was getting no interviews! Your program helped me articulate my process during interviews. I was offered a Product Designer role at Lowe’s Home Improvement. “
Moved into Leadership
“I was not writing my case studies the correct way. After following your strategies, I got hired to build a UX team at Lockheed Martin. “
This is why I created The Career Strategy Lab, the most comprehensive UX job search accelerator for UX and Product professionals who want to land their dream job in weeks, not months, and secure future roles, promotions, or unexpected opportunities.
There is no other program out there designed to take a UX or Product professional, regardless of career stage, through the entire process of getting their next role, from start to finish.
This is the only program where we teach the entire holistic ecosystem of getting your next role, from portfolio to relationships to resume and everything in between … and how they interact in an interconnected way.

Land your dream UX or Product role.
Here’s what it looks like to be in your dream UX or Product role:
Hey there, I’m Sarah Doody.
I’m a self taught User Researcher & Experience Designer and I got started in UX in 2005 and in 2012 started my own UX consultancy.
In 2012 I created and taught General Assembly’s very first 12-week UX immersive in NYC.
I’ve given UX talks and workshops all over the world including London, Sydney, Paris, Berlin, Lisbon, NYC, and more.
Google’s tried to hire me twice, but I turned them down. Best decision ever.
My passion is to see UX and Product professionals have the confidence and clarity to pursue and reach their career dreams.
What would it mean for your career if you could be in your dream role in 4 – 6 months or less, and with a salary increase of 50%?
Note → 50% is the average salary increase we’ve seen for our clients.
Let’s do the math … how much is it costing you every month you’re not in your new role?
Let’s say it takes you 9 months to get your next role.
BUT, what happens if you get hired in 6 months?
You get 2 extra months at your higher salary!
Don’t miss out or waste any more time!
Let me show you how to apply UX and Product Development principles to your career so you can get hired in weeks (not months) and with less stress.
It’s time to get your dream role & do the work you’re passionate about!
