Mobile UI Design

Good day,
I just wanted to ask some opinion.

I had been a self taught graphic designer for a quiet a long and been working online for almost 5 years now. While working on diverse different projects on design, I got into the field of work UI design for mobile application.

As the years go by, I always have this opportunity to work as UI design for mobile application. Eventually, I learn to love this new field of being a UI/UX Design.
(I am not a pro and I still consider myself as Junior in UI design).

Furthermore, I got frustrated because since last year and this year the I was having a hard time getting a job in this field. So I am pursuing my UI/UX design in a professional way by educating myself.

And at the same time I wanted to have a part-time work while studying.

I am asking for all the Pro in UI/UX design, am I need to go back as a plain graphic designer to get a freelance job while continue educating myself in UI/UX design?

Or I need to stick with my niche which I really love and that is being a UI/UX designer.
I don’t want to become a “jack of all trade” master of nothing.

As a freelancer, you’re only as good as your portfolio shows. Unless you have compelling work that showcases your experience in UX design, I would not sell yourself as a UX designer. You’ll need to build your experience enough so that you’re confident to take on the challenges of such an opportunity. I don’t think you need a formal education, but you should consider some type of education (online courses, local classes) to help move you along and give you the confidence to charge for your UX skills.

Thank you @SurfPark
Last year, during my free time I indulge myself in Online courses today. During the course, I realize that I need to learn many things in order for me to confident in my skills. Also, I have a chance to understand the job of a UX Designer. I need to bring a strong portfolio in order for me to stand out and land a job effectively.

Frankly speaking, I don’t like up-to-date designs.
