I'm a UI Engineer that have been working in Sophia for 2 years. I open this thread to ask you if you know some names of companies of the area to which I could send a CV. I'm interested to switch to a UX-oriented position, such as UX Designer, Information Architect, Usability specialist or similar and I saw there are people working in these design fields, but I can't find any job opening in Monster, LinkedIn, etc.
Thus, knowing some companies that might be interested in such a position would be really helpful.
I know there are a few different perspectives on Interaction Design as a profession. I work on the macro and micro level of user interactions as they relate to any given interactive system.
I recently had an interesting conversation with someone who is more of a usability or user experience consultant. Her focus is on the macro or hollistic levels of interactions. She is also having difficulty sequeing into the agency arena.
we are working on a mobile app that incorporates easy access to personalized content. In that area you can find things like "my shortcuts", my bookmarks, my open cases, my alerts, etc. We are struggling to come up with a better label for the overall category than "My Stuff"- does anyone have any ideas?? ("favorites" doesn't accurately encompass all of the things you find there- and we need it to be broad enough to scale if and when other types of content are added in the section down the road.
James Kalbach and I are going to
present an overview of our four one-day UxFest courses that will be running in
London from 13-16 March (some of the courses will be available elsewhere, too –
Brussels and at the CHI 2012 conference in Austin Texas. See http://www.syntagm.co.uk/design/schedule.shtml
for full details).
