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?
I've been watching the job announcements on this forum and there seems
to be an uptick in the last couple of months.
My theory is that skill sets in high demand can be an early indicator
of economic recovery. I am measuring this based upon salary and my
perception of unemployment in amongst our profession. I honestly don't
know to many Ixd's that are unemployed. Not very scientific... but
that is what I am operating with and basing my hunch upon.
Just wondering your thoughts. Is there an increased demand for what we
do in these recent months?
What do you call someone who sits squarely on the fence between interaction
design and implementation?
I am trying to new employment or consulting opportunities. I can find
opportunities for people skilled solely in wireframing and prototyping. I
can also find opportunities for people with nothing but implementation
skills. Neither of these is what I am looking for. I've been wearing both
hats for over two decades now.
Is the entire market focused on separating these two skills?
