I'm stuck in the classic catch-22 of not having enough experience to get the IA/UX jobs currently posted in my area. I'm getting phone screens and face to face interviews, and the only thing that prevents me from sealing the deal is their insistence on X years of experience. How can I overcome this barrier?

Hey Anon I am changing my career to IA too (I found out lately that my skills very much process/data orientated). My previous industry is Architecture and Design. Now I am planning to do courses on how to actually build my ideas (designed UI) using html/php/mysql etc. Maybe you are doing similar things to get the career started?

What have you find out about the industry having experienced the interviews?
