For your Mc2 Employment contract ….uou can name it high salary instead, then show your employment contract with your salary showing on it, compare what you to what UX designers earn on Glassdoor in your country.

if you’re earning in dollars also convert it to pounds adding the rate as at today. E.g $3000 / E2500/ N4,000,000 ($ = 1400)

Then if an average UX designer earns N350k you convert it to pounds too to show them that it’s really low

For your OC2 04

Client Work Screenshots

This might not work. They want to see your community engagement aside your day to day role …. You can’t say you’re working with clients on a product ….you need to have contributed as a mentor or speaking at an event etc

Remember OC2 is strictly for communities
OC1 is for innovation and,
OC3 is for companies

Your OC3 is not strong enough

I’ll say for all the 3 companies you got recommendations from yeah … why not write an evidence for each company stating your impact, your revenue, your employment letter, sales, and Figma screenshots

Do this for 3 companies

Then your
OC3-03 is complete

(Also if you write metrics in your evidence your referee has to validate it in the reference letter both of you have to be saying the same thing

For example, if your increased user engagement by 20x your degree has to say the same thing if you’re getting a recommendation from him
