I find the best way to learn is to just start doing it. Once you have that first foot in the door, it’s just a matter of finding a way to apply what you’ve learned to your goals.
One of the most profound things about being a professional is that you’re a passionate user of tools.
But I think this is a good thing because when you start learning, your brain starts to develop the ability to learn things new. What’s even better is that you can usually get the most out of that learning process when youre in a class. So the next time you get in an internship, ask your current employer’s HR department if they can send you over to help with user research.
As I mentioned above, I’ve been working in user experience research for the last couple of weeks at Google and I’m very impressed. I get to work in a very interesting environment with very intelligent people and I get to learn a lot about user experience. But I also learn something new everyday, which is one of the reasons that user research is so incredibly fulfilling. I love it.
I’ve also been working in user research at a startup called Blue Jeans, which I’m very excited about. Blue Jeans is a company that will help companies like Facebook and Twitter build better user experiences so they can get more traffic. I think my main interest as an intern is interviewing people and figuring out what I really want to do with my life.
I can see why it’s so interesting. I’ve been on startup for almost six years now, and I think I’ve spent the better part of a day with a team of new tech guys and I’m really enjoying it.
It sounds like youve got a pretty good idea of what you would like to do. One thing that Im really looking forward to is taking a class with some of the people Im interning with on the weekends. Im a big fan of Coursera and Im wondering if Ive ever done any of these classes before. Its a chance to learn about programming, design, and other interesting things. I also find it fun to try different things on the side and see how you like them.
I know this isn’t a very “cool” thing to say, but I’ve got to say that one of the best ways to get a feel for what you want to do is to intern with a team of your peers and see what they’ve done before. That way, when you sign up for classes you can ask them questions to get a feel for what other people are working on.
It’s a cool idea, but it’s not great. I get confused about how to make this work, so I decided to do it myself, and it turns out it isn’t very smart. I had a buddy who was doing the research for the game who was doing the tests right after we started, and he was totally in the middle of it with his computer and the game.
A lot of the time I don’t think it is the right way to go about things, but I do think that the end result should be an interesting experiment. The goal is to see if my brain can figure out what we should be doing while there is a decent amount of time.
