Looking for great company career sites

Hello everyone,
I'm in the process of redesigning a career site and I'm just getting
into the research, but I wondered if you all had any career sites that
just really impressed you that you'd be willing to share. By the way,
these would be the career section on a company's site, not job search
sites like monster or dice or what have you.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Issue tracking tool

Hello. I apologize as this is may be more of a project management

We are near the beginning of an interface design project with an Asian
based client. All of the client representatives; designers, developers,
marketing, you name it is based in Asia. Given cuts in travel budget
actual face time will be minimal. We recognize that time and language
differences will make communication and issue/ question tracking a

So, I am looking for a online issue/question tracking tool. Similar to
bugtracking, but for open interaction design questions/ discussions.

interaction design training in Montreal?

Hi all,

I have been scouring these forums for a few days looking for school/training to start a career in interaction design. I graduated from a computer science degree and have been working as a developer (web, app you name it) for the past 5 years. From all the threads I found, there seems to be only three schools that offers a graduate program in that field: University of Toronto, Carleton University and Simon Frasier University. Are there any schools (like centre NAD) where I can get some training?

Pogo-stick navigation


Can anyone point me to research done on the effectiveness or non-effectiveness of the "pogo-stick" model of navigation, that is, navigation that forces users to return to a central page to find all possible choices.

I do have UIE's white paper,Are the Product Lists on Your Site Reducing Sales? which addresses the issues of pogo-stick navigation with regards to online sales. I'm looking for additional research and would appreciate any references of which you might be aware.

Best Regards,
Jim Griesemer
