Hi, I only discovered the career of an interaction designer today to be honest. I just graduated with a degree in management information systems (MIS). interaction design appeals to me more than anything ive ever thought of in the past but I'm not sure if I have the skills, or where to start looking for a position.
Some of my skills:
7-8 years using photoshop.
About 2 years with Visual Studio/Basic
About 2 year with Dreamweaver and Notepad for HTML.
A year or so with java (Netbeans and textpad)
A year or so with SQL and Oracle
I've fooled around with small animation for many years. nothing difficult in my opinion
I've dabbled with Visio.
Off the top of my head thats about all I can think of.
I've always read about technology, no matter what field it is in. I read about technology even though I know I will never buy them. I follow CES, Apple's and Google's yearly conference. I've always been fascinated with ergonomics. How people think, and anticipating how people with respond to events/interactions.
I would really appreciate any feedback. Am I crazy for considering interaction design?
