Other jobs that involve user research

There are other roles that may involve doing user research on a semi-regular basis—like product marketing or customer success. To some extent, almost any job can involve user research if it’s something you're interested in doing (and that your company values). 

For example, I'm a Content Marketing Manager; user research isn’t an inherent part of my job description but it’s something I do fairly often. Since I work for a company that values user research, I get to participate in company-wide studies and can advocate for additional user research to make our content even better. 

If you’re interested in pursuing a career in user research but don’t work directly in that space yet, think of how you could incorporate talking to users into your work:

  • Could a project you’re working on be more efficient with some user feedback? 
  • Would you be able to learn more about your customers through research? 
  • What are you guessing about that you shouldn't be?
