Greetings! I am a (very recent) graduate in Software Engineering from
Sri Lanka and I wish to peruse my higher studies (postgrads) in research based
user experience design and development. Professionally I do not have any HCI,
usability or UX related work or research experience. As a matter of fact, there
are no academic or commercial user experience labs in Sri Lanka. And finding opportunity
to gain work experience on such a field is very hard here.
When it comes to to finding a job in the user experience industry, there's a lot of heartache. There are the confusing acronyms (IxD, UX, IA, etc.), and the job descriptions (like "wireframe") that mean different things to different people. How does a person transition into the field? Are you selling yourself short? How many years of experience do you need? And how much should these jobs pay?
I thought, would try collaborating with some designers who have already worked in iPad or other tablet related apps who can guide me in the right direction in terms of how to better create a user-experience on the iPad.
At Bestica, nation's leading User Experience staffing company, we thus are in the process of revamping our website to convey our value proposition better to the UX community at large.
Thus, we were wondering if having testimonials from our clients and candidates on our websiite homepage be helpful to instill trust to the UX community in our services, or if it wouldn't really have any major affect to the viewers coming to our website.
Your kind suggestions on this matter will be highly appreciated.
