UX Roles: A Report from Slideshare.net

I am getting my Masters in Human Computer Interaction at DePaul University. Each course in the program focuses on a different nich of the field of User Experience. For example, I am currently taking “”Interaction Design & Information Architecture.” Last quarter, I took “Digital Page Formatting.” I recently came across this slide show report on UX Roles from Slideshare.net. It illustrates a breakdown of the different roles one can pursue in the field of user experience. The comparison careers were interesting. For example, the “User Interface Designer”is compared as being similar to the role of an “Interior Designer”of the field of Interior Design/Interior Decorating. That sparked my interest! Looking further, the slide show illustrates the skills needed to be a “User Interface Designer” (Universal Design Principals, Usability, Typography, HTML/CSS, Photoshop, Illustrator, Fireworks, jQuery).
