Presentation from UXCampOttawa
Hiring is hard.
The prospect of growing your team is exciting, but hiring the right person to grow your team is hard. But, that’s what we do as UX professionals, we tackle hard problems, and hiring the right person, can be thought of as just another one of those hard problems. So, before you jump to a conclusion and rush to post that job description to build your clone army, maybe you should pause, and (as you would do with any other design problem) make sure you have defined this hiring “problem” properly. In this talk, I reflect a bit on the nebulous term of user experience and the various skill sets that fit within its container, as well as step through some techniques to help you understand who you should really be looking for to grow your team.
