You should try to avoid getting hung up on job titles, they are usually very generic and do not contain enough information as to what the role may or may not involve. Am I a UX designer? This is the wrong question. What you should be asking is: "Do I have experience with UX design?" For example, if you go for a new job advertising for a UX ...

At my last job we used Jira to keep track of our projects. Each of the phases you described above can be implemented in this tool and it's very usable, efficient and effective. Project managers and scrum masters create the high level features and tasks for each requirement (also called epics and stories). The tasks or stories then are given high level ...

The selected values are what give the data context and accuracy; 'custom' is just a signifier to the user of capability to define a range. Go with the actual values, as without a clear display of time bounds, users might be wondering why their photos aren't showing up, only to realize that 'custom' might be set incorrectly, as they would have to store the ...

I would say these are skills to achieve certain goals, just the way visual design an UI design would be. UX is a mindset of putting the user 1st in order to improve their experience of using a product or service. Of course research is a critical part of UX. I believe your skills will be critical in the domains of AR & VR UX which are new and different ...

UX is not about design or interfaces. It is about researching users, finding the right problems, dissecting them and translating them into solutions which are later tested and retested. Graphic designers drift towards the field because originally they were the only ones in a company designing graphics, so management types decided interfaces were fit for ...

I've found these to be helpful: About Face by Alan Cooper, Designing for the Digital Age by Kim Goodman, Lean UX by Jeff Gothelf & Josh Seiden, books from A Book Apart. Happy reading!

Definitely, most of the UX Designers' vacancies require the capability of suggesting design enhancements on already existing UI's etc. And having an ability to spot other's bugs or to suggest improvement is considered a big deal (alongside the actual UI/UX requirements & standards). Good luck.

If you cannot pay an external agency or service to do your recruiting, you will need to do the work yourself. Put out screeners on LinkedIn and Twitter. Find the communities that your target audience would most likely be.

I've seen a lot of portfolios that propose solutions for UX problems in popular apps, streaming services, etc. I don't think this is a good idea for a portfolio because: You're not familiar with the app's prioritized users and their tasks. What seems like a UX issue to you (maybe not the right user) might be fine for the app's intended users. The problem ...

While creating a form, when input is filled with the answer is good to show the description of the input field - label. For instance by using floating labels. Select code field - I'm able to write anything I want in this field even though it's a dropdown menu. Moreover, I don't get any feedback if the field is filled incorrectly. When the field is not ...

I'm a big fan of https://www.gov.uk/ And the Swedish government website https://www.government.se/ They are doing a great job and they invest a lot in user research before launching anything. I don't think I can share any screenshots but you can get a feeling of how well that website is organised.
