Alphabet Soup: Career Paths, Interviews, and Skill Sets

A session at Big Design Conference 2011

Friday 15th July, 2011

10:00am to 11:00am (CST)

The era of the lone designer is pretty much over. When it comes to selecting the best candidates for work in experience design positions, design rationale and the process are becoming more important the the actual quality of the portfolio.

There is considerable movement away from a skill set and towards a problem solving mindset or world view. Individual skill sets (JavaScript, design, coding) are becoming commoditized. A generalist with shallow understanding of design, code, wireframing, usability, coupled with the normal people skills and organizational skills are becoming the desired candidate.

In this talk, you will learn how to position yourself to get hired for your next design gig and learn what hiring managers want and need. You will get your competitive edge to stand out from the crowd.
