Making Hard Choices - UXPA 2014

Just how do we select which 25% of our amazing submissions to include in the program for the annual conference? Deliberately and with great care. When so many submissions meet our strict quality standards, we must evaluate each one carefully to produce an exciting program that includes a broad mixture of relevant topics that are both current and meaningful to attendees. 

Susan Farrell and Jakob Nielsen publish free User Experience Careers report

On March 11, Susan Farrell announced the publication of a report about User Experience Careers, based on a survey of people working in interaction design, user experience research, and information architecture.  According to Susan, they hope that the report "will be useful to students, academic advisors, or people interviewing for UX Positions".  The report answers the question "What is user experience, why are these professions worth considering, and how should I prepare to enter the field?"

UXPA is proud to share a link to the report.  You can access it here:
