Empathic. Collaborative. Constructive. Fast. These are just some of the words that today’s hiring managers use to describe the new New Hire. As our mediums change, so do our expectations for information architects and user experience designers. As screens shrink, our expectations for new New Hires grow.
There is an increasing need for UX professionals, however, universities are not producing the types of graduates that industry can easily hire. The paradox is that there’s a gap in what’s currently taught at universities and the practical needs of industry.
Based on Jared Spool’s and my primary research with hiring UX managers from across the United States, this practical session will focus on:
Current marketplace needs. Current educational trends. How to change to make sure we meet the demand of this new, expanding marketplace.
We can create the next generation of UX professionals by collaborating with industry and education. In fact, the future of our discipline depends on it.
