Job Board request: Remote positions

Hey everyone, 

As a current remote job seeker, I'd love to see more explicitly remote (or open to remote) positions on the job board. Telepresence is becoming more and more prevalent, so it'd be great to separate those remote jobs out so folks like me can easily find them.

How can we make this happen? 

P.S. To anyone looking to hire a full-time, remote UI Engineer or Product Designer, contact me kevin at kevinsuttle dot com. I'm currently looking for new role. Thanks in advance.

Building your online site/portfolio all over again

If you were to do your professional site or online portfolio all over again, would you take the same approach? Would you use the same tools?

Would you use something like Google tools to simplify site development and maintenance?  Would you use Wordpress tools that have CMS and blog features built-in?  Would you build it from scratch (with HTML/CSS or Dreamweaver)?  Some other tool/approach?

What are some of the pros and cons you've experienced putting a site together to market yourself?

Attaching a video of yourself with your job application


There are tons of UX, Interaction design jobs in North America and Europe. I have many times thought about applying for jobs in Canada. Since I am based in Europe the recruiter may not be able to "invite" me for an interview, so everyting has to be done via a long distance call.

My creativity lately wants me to send a video of myself where I present myself and maybe even record the current work location and get some recommendations from current colleagues.

The idea is that this videofile can be attached to the email along with my resume.doc file and cv.doc file.

UX résumés- what does yours look like?

I've been aggressively job-hunting lately, and a couple of weeks ago I decided to revise the tired old résumé I had been sending out- I felt it didn't really represent me well anymore. Instead of just swapping templates or just changing a few lines or adding new positions, I treated it like I would any other UX project.

Question about resume/ portfolios

Hi Folks, I curious to know people's thought are on what would
constitute a good portfolio for an Interaction Design/Usability job
seeker. I essentially straight from grad school to teaching;never had to
review resumes in my previous career :) and now my students are asking
those type of questions. Hopefully people have some experiences to
share/advice I can give to them. Should they avoid flash online
portfolios? Do them only in HTML..etc

Resume question

Hello everyone.

I'm a recently laid-off interaction designer, currently looking for
work (in NYC).

Several people have advised me to put a "technologies" section on my
resume, including the programming languages used on the projects I've
worked on. I'm a bit reluctant to do this, because I don't want people
to misconstrue it as implying that I know these languages, nor do I
particularly want to put in a disclaimer stating that I don't really
know them.
