New to the list: How to find an Interaction Design job

Hello all,

I am a C# developer in the Nashville area. After years of trying to instill interaction design principles into the company I work for, I have finally given up. This company develops software without ever consulting a single target user. The entire design process is left up the developers, and you can imagine what kind of product that turns out.

After going through a Cooper design course in 2003, I realized I was at the wrong company, but foolishly thought I could bring about change in the way we designed our products.

Do you know Grants or Fellowships for complete Master programs or PhD positions on IxD?

Hello,
I’d like to propose some questions to the IxDA community; maybe anybody has experience to answer any of my requests.
Does anyone know any Fellowship or grant program for European students to submit a Master Degree or a salaried PhD position in the field of HCI -- IxD?
Does anyone know if any companies are interested to sponsor candidates to complete IxD Masters?
Had anybody a fellowship for his/her IxD carrier? Where or who did it for you?

Any IxD activities in the SFO Bay area next week?

Hi,

Greetings from Finland :)

I'll be joining the Cooper Design Communication Course on March
28-29. Is anyone else on this list coming too? (http://cooper.com/
content/cooperu/classes.asp)

Is there any IxD-related happenings around the area during the week?
I'd be happy to hear any tips or ideas. It would also be nice to sit
down F2F with other practioners to talk about what it's like to do
our job in Scandinavia / Finland versus United States.
