Need advice for starting a career in UX/Interaction Design.

Hello everyone,

I'm having a lot of trouble getting a job in UX/Interaction Design.

I've seen a lot of discussion with people in the same situation as me, but I'm wondering what I'm doing wrong or what I could improve on. (specifically in my case)

Here are the things I've been doing/done...

I've recently graduated with an HCI major at the University of Washington. I've taken as many classes I can with design, interaction design, user experience, etc.

design patterns for list sorting and filtering

Hi,

I'm working on a project where users will have potentially large lists
of items, sometimes personal collections, sometimes search results.
Each item in the list will have a number of fields, but not always
displayed in discreet columns, some of the data will be merged into
sentence form and some in shared columns.

I want users to be able to sort and filter the lists and I'm looking
for some good example of complex sort and filter interfaces. eBay was
a good starting point, but I'd like a few other examples.

Does anybody have any good live examples?

Interaction Design methods library

About two years ago I came across a pretty exhaustive list of IxD methods, with advice on when to use them and examples of implementations. It covered prototyping, interviewing, ethnography research, information architecture, sketching, user testing, research analysis and synthesis, etc. - the whole shebang. It was nothing short of amazing, and yet I didn't bookmark it / lost the bookmark. Every few months I try to find it again. Really hoping I didn't dream the whole thing up. I faintly recall it being curated by a school, but that could be a red herring.

"Way Out" vs "Exit" - Signage usability and passenger experience

Vancouver, Canada recently opened a new subway system called "Canada
Line" (http://www.canadaline.ca). While I notice quite a few issues
in the whole passenger experience, one thing that makes me wonder the
most is the exit sign: instead of printing "Exit", they use "Way
Out". My thoughts:

- "Exit" is almost the international standard word to indicate an
exit route.

How do you define successful experience? (was: Information Architect Opening at NavigationArts in Washington D.C.Metro Area)

How do you define successful experience?

Curious to your answers to this question. Is it experience where you
learned a lot? Where stakeholders were happy?

Examples of web application system documentation?

Hi all,
Where could I find good examples of web application system documentation? Are there best practices and standards that I could rely upon?
We are customizing a web ordering (which we are proprietary) for a client and just delivered its system documentation (site maps, processes flows with notifications, high level interactions between web servers and databases, system structure description, and main screens descriptions – not at the object level but with emphasis on main functionalities).

6 Metrics for Managing UI Design

I've been working with my team to devise a small set of metrics (don't want
overkill) to help both guide our efforts and measure our progress. Please
take a look at my post if you have any interest in this area and comment. I
would love to get feedback on metrics that others are working with.
