Absolutely! My first job in software was in a hybrid PM and UX role for an electronic health record product. My prior career had been in healthcare (inpatient rehabilitation with older adults, internal medicine knowledge required) as a speech-language pathologist. My healthcare system and internal medicine knowledge was a HUGE unfair advantage. And my expertise in cognitive function and rehabilitation (my SLP specialty) was a boon to my work as a UX designer.
Now I’m in a PM role in the data analytics industry. I don’t have the unfair advantage of subject matter expertise, but my experience as a UX designer is an advantage!
