Interesting UX Resources and a Snapshot of the Job Market

We find a lot of interesting articles from other sites and publications, and share some of the better ones through our email list. And some of the other sites, Smashing Magazine particularly, regularly share links to our articles, so we think it’s time to return the favor.

Articles from around the Web

A Snapshot of the UX Job Market

There’s much to be learned about UX by looking at the aggregate of many things. Sometimes you learn more about UX trends by looking at the aggregate of what people are choosing to write about than you would by reading any individual blog post or article.

We think the same is also true of UX job postings. You may not be job hunting right now, but it’s still interesting to look at recent job postings in aggregate to see where the jobs are, what the positions are called, and what sorts of companies have the openings. And although you may not be looking for a job, you may know someone who is.
