Hi all,

I'm very familiar with UK style CVs/Resumes. I've read enough of them over the past 4 years or so.

You may have noticed I'm making forays into the US UX market and I have noticed some sizable differences in the way people present themselves. Something I noticed:

Resumes depicting senior practiioners are often actually people with team lead/management and sometimes even board level experience, but their resume gives the impression they are at the senior design/architect level. People have told me this is common, unlike in the UK, where people are quick to add the most superior sounding job title to their CV as soon as they have the chance (sometimes too fast). Is this common?

Thoughts are welcome.

Sean

Hi Sean,

I agree with your point, but i think, formal study is not always needed in User Exp., to land job for same.

May be on higher level, it matters as formal training gives you the thinking process which is needed, but still again it depends upon person to person and their abilities. All are different, their thinkings are different.
