Getting into interaction design

Hi all,

A couple of questions to put to the readers here.

I have a degree in psych and a PhD in HCI both from good universities
and want to get a steady position in this field. I've done industrial
work (human factors multi-company collaboration into commercial
aircraft cockpit design - assessment and some design) and commercial
work (workflow apps both desktop & web-based, scientific desktop app,
oil exploration app - design, assessment, development) and educational
(commercial VLE - assessment).

Apparently, the signal bars on a mobile phone don't mean much

Is an interface component like this useful even if it is not very
meaningful? What if the signal bars were eliminated completely?

In the "Designers" category - which I think describes the process pretty
well - I think IxD is Industrial Design much more than it is Graphic Design.
Or, alternately, over in the "Computer Software Engineers" category
http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos267.htm, it would fit under Computer Applications
Software Engineers.

Event:10/28 NYC UPA - Will Website Usability Decide the 2008 Presidential Election?

NYC Usability Professionals Association presents:

*Usability Research on Undecided Voters:
Will Website Usability Decide the 2008 Presidential Election?*

In an age of media overload, how do undecided voters make up their minds in
the upcoming election? Do Web savvy Americans turn to the Web for answers
and if so, how much influence do the candidates' Websites have? Could the
usability of the Obama & McCain sites have a significant impact on the way
people perceive each candidate?
