Due to some unfortunate miscommunication, the resumes that the design grad students need to submit for distribution to the companies that will be courting us during a job fair later this month are not due on Monday, but tomorrow.


So guess what I’m working on?

Fortunately, my resume prior to grad school is in pretty good order. But, as my previous work did not have a focus on design—at least in title and what people thought I was doing—I decided to do a Google search for “interaction designer resume” to see what interaction designers have to say about themselves.

There are three things I noticed from looking at the results of this search:

  1. Interaction designer resume sites are not well designed, graphically
  2. What many list as interaction design does not sound like interaction design to me
  3. My search wasn’t all that helpful
