You Asked, We Answered - Listener Grab Bag #3

Today we answer some great questions from our fabulous listeners! Hope it helps!

  • Is it worth applying to jobs on LinkedIn and Indeed?
  • We're supposed to network to find a job, but what do you do when no one you know has an open role? 
  • When hundreds or thousands of people apply to a job in just a few days, should you even bother?
  • Why does it seem like companies are hiring more UX contractors these days? What does it mean for the future of the field?
  • What are some UX research-adjacent careers that pay the same?
  • With more companies wanting hybrid designer-researchers, what does this mean for the evolution of our skill sets?
  • Why are companies passing up on qualified, extending the process in search for the “perfect candidate" (who may not actually exist)?
  • Why do I keep seeing the exact same jobs getting reposted every few months for nearly 2 years now?
