UX research focused on entry-level professionals and existing training curriculum and potential opportunities. My work aimed to identify gaps in content, barriers to accessing this content, and recommendations for training pathways for government leaders. This project set out to better understand the current environment of government digital services and where emerging professionals fit within the space. We interviewed nine leaders who have experience working in government digital service teams or within government roles of digital service delivery in order to better understand opportunities for entry-level roles and what those roles might look like. In preparation for the interviews, we captured foundational information through a survey. In the interviews, experts provided more context about the government digital service ecosystem, potential pathways for emerging professionals, and relevant skills needed to succeed in these roles.
