There seems to be a lot of hiring for UX professionals, now, in the New York City area.
I was looking for an opprtunity much closer to home and this company was accomodating, since I do work full-time. But I was shocked, even though, in the past I had suspected that a few of the companies I had interviewed with had never hired a UX professional before. That was never really my concern, but this company, did not know very much about user experience.
You may have seen that we started a series devoted to fieldwork War
Stories on our blog. As I wrote at the launch of the series, "These
experiences – the crazy household, the dog that does his business on your shoes,
the GPS failure – are inevitable and are often (at least in hindsight)
hilarious. Exchanging these stories is a way of socializing our technique and
creating learning opportunities for both tellers and listeners.
It's not too late to book places on the first in our
series of Guerrilla UCD webinars tomorrow at 16:30 London time. Even if you can't
attend the live boot camp session, you will be able to download a
recording to share with your team by the end of the week. The slides are already
available for download – just visit 'My Webinars' once you sign up. And
you can add the free one-hour overview session at the same time.
