Losing my project manager

My agency is losing a project manager and I was told he will not be replaced.  My role as a user experience designer normally has meant that I complete my deliverables and submit them to my project manager.  The void that will be left when my project manager leaves will now be filled by myself, the creative director and another person.  I need help with my new duties.

Is this the state of IA?

I started in information architecture in 2007, I got out of it and now I am trying to get back into IA/UX.  I consequently do not have the 5+ years of experience or the mandatory "senior titles", but I do have the education!  I came across this in a recent job posting:  "5+ years of agency experience working on site builds. Someone who really understands the user experience."  I was initially hired because I was a user experience professional.

Building a Portfolio


I'm relatively new to the field of IxD/IA/UCD and was wondering what constitutes a good portfolio. Are there any examples anyone would be willing to share? 

Also, as I'm looking to build my mine and get more inxperience in the field of IxD, any information as to where I can find part-time work (as I'm currently working full-time) in the NYC area would be greatly appreciated.  I've hit up some of the usual hot spots such as eLance and Craigslist, but have not had any luck so far.

Thanks, and I look forward to your replies.

I'm currently based in the Philippines / Hong Kong and am heading back to London (I'm British) in a few weeks when I've wrapped up work here. I should be here Monday 3rd June and I'd like to attend the next IxDA meeting in London to meet you guys and network.


My questions are about London: What's the work situation like there? And who are the best people to contact?

Alternative jobs relevant to UX research and design

I was fairly intrigued by this little bit burried in a thread about the lack of employment opportunities for junior UX folk.

"Along with that, I would encourage you to broaden your search beyond pure UX roles. BA roles, product manager roles and other roles in technology, experience delivery, or an industry of interest can be a great platform of experience on which to biuild a career."

I'm curious if anybody can expand on this. A few specific questions to get the ball rolling:


Looking for great User Experience talent

We at Vidli are trying to find a well rounded User Experience
contractor for our new video licensing system.

In short, what we are looking for is someone who knows how AJAX
works, can build some intuitive wireframes that designers and
developers can understand and take lead from.

We have a far more in depth job posting on our site at

Please do take a look and even if you don't have all the
qualifications, we may in the end find you are perfect for the gig.
