Recommendation Letters for a Finance Professional

Hello Kaiting,

I hope all is well.

I’m a finance professional with over five years of experience looking to make a drastic switch to UX design. I don’t see myself working in the asset management industry anymore and I have an undeniable penchant for all things product, and design.

I’m working on a few projects like designing and building a website for my father’s business here in India but I am a bit worried about the recommendation letters. None of my recommenders will be from the UX/UI/design profession. I wanted to know if:
a. That will pose a problem to my application
b. If you have any suggestions on how I can tackle this

Looking forward to hearing from you!
