A guide to finding and keeping UX professionals

Finding and keeping UX professionals is an art...and a free eBook.

UX is an integral part of nearly every business’ success plan, but finding and keeping UX professionals is still a mystery to many companies. Here at Aquent, we’re getting more and more requests to help find and identify the appropriate candidates out of a growing population of UX practitioners. After all that work of finding UX professionals, our clients have been asking about how to get UXers to accept your job offer and then keep them happy once they’re employed.

To make sure we’re in touch with the UX community, we reached out to our internal network of UX experts and their colleagues to discuss the current state of the industry.

Do you also have challenges finding, attracting, and retaining UX professionals? Read on to hear an overview of what UX professionals look for in a new job, tips to connect with the community, ways to entice candidates to take a position, and pointers about keeping your UX team happy and engaged in their work.
