I am a 50 year old former chef/owner in the Food&Beverage industry, and released from prison incarceration nearly a year ago. I'm planning a career change very soon, and am currently exploring the best options with several criteria being considered. First, my age and certain barriers that would limit success. Next, having been previously incarcerated on a charge considered "violent"(assault 2), I am aware that many tech jobs which may require certain clearance measures and various other security related requirements would also be an issue. Last, though I consider myself flexible, a quick learner in most cases, and of above average intelligence, the last time I recall participating in any formal education was nearly 35 years ago, and not at a university or even certificate level. While a career in tech interests me, specifically UX design, Digital Marketing, and even Tech/Software Sales, I happen to also be very interested in Behavioral Health (adolecent addiction counseling). Given my background and considerable barriers, I am interested in several opinions as to what realistic opportunities there are in the career paths I have mentioned. In particular, what do hiring project managers look for exactly for an entry level UX researcher Will age or longevity be a concern? Is there more opportunity in Marketing, working remotely or beginning my own private agency? As a youth counselor a concern I have is, though my ambition and intent working with children and families, to repair or mitigate problems brought on by substance abuse, I hope to find overwhelming satisfaction both personally, as well as professionally. However, I am curious to know just how many felt as I do, prior to working daily with the actual individuals and families suffering. Are there statistics which suggest the number of new counselors who in their first or second year, decide the daily resposibility and fact that often many more are lost than a success may simply be too much to handle, and resign in attempt to preserve their own sanity? I realize the question asked, resulted in many and I apologize. Whatever insight offered however will be greatly appreciated as I try and whittle the options down to hopefully the career path most suitable. Thank you, Patrick

As a 50 year old male, I am embarking on obtainining relevent skills to begin a new career path. I was recently incarcerated and along with my age, and fact I have little experience in any of the above mentioned career choices, I am seeking insight as to which path I may find the least resistant, while also a realistic opportunity for growth as well as demand in the chosen field.

What strategy can new design graduate students use to find a job in big tech?

Hello! I wish to ask about how hard it is to get into a big tech company UX design job now for a beginner-mid level designer who only worked for small companies, at the current time? And how about a prediction of the situation this December? I applied a few positions at Google, but haven't heard anything back, so do all of the classmates I know. I wish to understand how much does this situation relate to the big tech lay-off situation, and what strategy can new graduate students use this December to find a job. Thanks!

Questions about User Experience (UX) and Prototyping tools in Game Design

Hey all, I'm interested in pursuing a career in game design and because it is such a broad field that encompasses a multitude of disciplines and specialties (especially in larger studios), I am specifically interested in going into UX Design (a.k.a. Visual Design, Interaction Design, or UI design). That said, I recently completed an online course in Principles of Game Design and I posted a thread on the course's discussion forum asking questions about UX design and prototyping in game design about a week ago. However, since I have yet to get a response on that thread, I thought that this would be a good site to ask this question on in hopes of getting at least one response. Here are my questions: 1.) In addition to taking the game design course, I am also taking a course in UX design. I am curious to know what prototyping tool(s) is/are most used by game designers as well as by UX designers who work in the games industry. Here is a link to a page of prototyping tools (see below). Are there any from that list that are most prominently used by game designers? Also, would any of you happen to know of other prototyping tools that were not on the list but are still frequently used by game designers? [http://uxdesignweekly.com/ux-resources/prototyping-tools/](http://uxdesignweekly.com/ux-resources/prototyping-tools/) 2.) Two things I have learned so far from my UX design class are user-centered design and the five elements of user experience: strategy, scope, structure, skeleton, and surface. Are these frameworks and methodologies also applied in game design or are different approaches used? If you have any questions that you'd like to ask me in order to better understand where I'm coming from, please ask and I'll be more than willing to clarify. Thanks to all who responded! #game-design #user-experience #visual-design #ux-design #user-interface-design #interaction-design #prototyping #wireframes
