How to display relevant home page as per the user type for first time users?

Type of Website: Portal

Target Audience: Companies that need art (artworks like vector art) and order sampling done. These companies are Promotional Suppliers and Distributors. There are first time users (lot of them) and existing client base.

The entire process is set online for receiving art till the point we invoice it.

Objective: Intuitively show personalized home page depending on the type of first time user (here -> Supplier or Distributor).

Hired a recent undergrad? If so, which school/program?

I'm trying to figure out which schools are churning out good candidates to fill junior IxD positions, and what these schools are calling the degree undergraduates receive (our HR department needs a better understanding). Schools in Southern California would be of particular interest since that's where we're located.

That said, if anyone steers clear of hiring recent undergrads (favoring instead graduate students or only those with a minimum level of real-world experience---regardless of education), I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Thanks!

Sitemaps at bottom of page

I've seen designs that put sitemaps (generally showing two levels deep) at the bottom of every page and I'm wondering if anyone has evidence for whether or not this is a useful practice. My gut instinct is that you wouldn't need the site map if the navigation works well. But one of the arguments for it is that it allows you to get to deeper links more quickly. Of course it's at the bottom of the page so users may not even notice it...

How do I delete a profile on IXDA?

I inadvertently signed up for two accounts. Does anyone know how to delete a profile? For the life of me, I can't find it.

Yes, it's quite funny to be a member of a site of interaction design professionals and there's no obvious delete button located on edit profile page. I've looked through every page, up and down, and can't seem to locate.
