Career Success Means Standing Up to Impostor Syndrome

Career Success Means Standing Up to Impostor Syndrome

Coined in 1978 by clinical psychologists Pauline R. Clance and Suzanne Imes, Impostor Syndrome refers to high-achievers who are unable to genuinely accept their accomplishments, attributing them instead to luck, coincidence or some other intangible. It’s a pressure that particularly bears down on the technology community. In this interview, Senior UX Designer Kim Harris explores this surprisingly common syndrome, her personal experience with it, and helpful advice for conquering it.

In my nearly three years with projekt202, I have experienced unique opportunities that have grown me professionally and personally.

Career Growth: A Natural Effect of Working at projekt202

 

"projekt202’s emphasis on cross-functional teams really gives our employees a breadth of exposure to all of the roles necessary to create amazing software experiences ..."

At projekt202, we support career development among our diverse teams of professionals. Employees are actively encouraged to investigate and take on new responsibilities and roles that allow them to grow in their professions.

Program Manager Mike Mannis shares his perspective on his career path at projekt202:

I originally joined projekt202 as a Solutions Architect and led the development effort on multiple projects. Yet, over time, I was becoming disenchanted with the day-to-day intricacies of actual development. However, I was still interested in the software development process, especially the focus on research and design at projekt202.

When I spoke to my manager, he was very understanding and helped set me on a new career path, first in information architecture and analysis, and then in project management, expanding on my project experience from my architect role.

projekt202’s emphasis on cross-functional teams really gives our employees a breadth of exposure to all of the roles necessary to create amazing software experiences, which, in turn, makes career growth -- even in a totally different direction -- a natural effect of working here.
