Is your company recruiting designers? Will they be in 2013?
Did you know that the best way to get on the radar screen of the best potential recruits is to have a booth at Interaction 13? Why you ask?
Because those that come to Interaction conferences cross all segments of interaction design and other cross-functional UX practices in terms of years of experience and types of engagements (internal or agency).
They are reaching out to peers to engage others and educate themselves.
They are curious about the best of what is happening in the design of interactive systems of all types of technology.
They are proactive in wanting to network in person and aren't afraid to cross borders or a room to engage in "what's next?"
This and many other reasons makes Interaction one of the best places to try to gain mindshare of the IxD community and the host of designers who may want to work for you.
It's never been more competitive to find good talent than it is today and all the players are clamoring to scoop up the talent you already have. So you better be out there to represent.
